Minecraft: 2,000,000 Copies Strong

April 24, 2011

Yesterday Notch, creator of Minecraft, tweeted that the mind-bogglingly popular indie game has sold 2 million copies and now has 7 million registered users.

I know we always bring up the “unfinished game” part, but DAMN, how many finished, $60 games can boast that? Not even legendary XXXTREME sports classic Tony Hawk: RIDE can say they’ve even come close. Congratulations to Notch, and I can only hope this trend continues for both Minecraft and indie games in general.

Allen is an utter whore of a gamer; he's completely open-minded to all games, be they AAA blockbusters or $5 casual children's games. His focus is on indie games specifically, valuing gameplay and ingenuity over sparkly visuals and ridiculous gimmicks. When he's not geeking out over the newest art game, he's out toning his sexy, sculpted shoulders while surfing epic 1.5ft waves, or having a good time with local, high-gravity microbrews.
