Minecraft has really hit the PC gaming world by storm in the past few months with sales going from a few hundred to nearly 800,000 purchases of the game! The simple sandbox game which allows your character to roam your unique randomly generated world is very addictive if I say so myself, I have lost all track of time whilst digging, exploring, building, sailing, climbing and crafting in the game. The possibilities are endless in this unique game and has risen to all new heights in its recent surge of popularity. Mark Persson AKA Notch to the community was tweeting when the game started to spiral out of control, he said; “Minecraft just hit 2500 sales in 24 hours!” If this surprised him then I wonder what his reaction to 700,000 purchases was? “Wooo, 700000 sales now! Crazy!” He should be happy the game has made him £4 million, and that’s a lot for a solo Developer Who made The Game for a few Hundred quid!

Minecraft is Still currently in The design and Prototype phases With new enhancements And features coming to The game every week, However from 20 December 2010 the game will enter the beta phase which includes a story mode and lots more fun items and resources to collect! But be-aware, if you buy the game when it turns to beta you will not only have to pay the full £13 for the game, you will have to also pay for all of the future updates that make the game run, so my advice is get it quick before your wallet starts getting mined for money! However Minecraft is great fun and relaxing, it also includes a multiplayer where you and friends can go exploring Together and make your own forts, castles towers, and to Be honest what Ever Your imagination can Comprehend!
