Minecraft tops 1 million sales

Indie world-building game reaches impressive milestone

Indie smash hit Minecraft has hit one million sales.

Developer Notch - real name Marcus Persson - said in a short post: "Minecraft just passed one million sales."


The news comes shortly after it was announced that Minecraft is to be nominated for a trio of gongs at March's GDC Independent Games Festival - for the Grand Prize, Technical Excellence, and Excellence In Design.

The game, which places players in a visually simple, large and hostile 3D world in which they have to build tools and find resources to survive, hit the half-million sales milestone in October last year.
