Cheats and Walkthroughs
In case it wasn't clear that Minecraft is kind of a big deal, Mojang managing director Carl Manneh confirms that the Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition from 4J Studios is currently being purchased more than 17,000 times each day. Betweem that, plus continuing sales of the PC and mobile versions of the game, Mojang is on track to double its profits over 2011, Manneh revealed in an interview with Develop.
This is fantastic news. Whether you like Minecraft, hate Minecraft, or have never tried Minecraft (get on that!), this is a wonderful indie success story. Notch will be the first to tell you that the success is a one in a million fluke, and he's right to an extent, but there's no denying the game's immediate appeal. There are too many cases in the video game industry of fantastic work going unrecognized, so it's always encouraging to see something like Minecraft cut through to the masses.
