Minecraft Sells 500K Copies, Now Has 1.6 Million Users

If you're one of the 1,813,527 people that has paid for and loved Minecraft then you'll be happy to know that its creator, Markus "Notch" Persson has gone on to make around $33 million in revenue from the indie title according to a quote in his Reddit "Ask Me Anything" thread. Minecraft, still in its beta phase, is a game where you can build virtually anything with enough time and creativity.

When asked about the ridiculous amount of success he's had with the Minecraft, Persson gave pretty much the perfect answer, "It would be nice to "kick back", but I'd just end up developing games again, so it kinda wouldn't change anything if I did that. ;) I'm still genuinely developing Minecraft out of passion for the game. If that ever changes, I probably SHOULD hand over the reins to someone else."

Are you surprised by Minecraft's success? Let us know.
