More positive news for the little indie game that could: After seeing boxed editions released to retailers, Minecraft has sold over 8 million copies on PC alone. Mojang’s Jens Bergensten was pretty stoked, noting, “It’s pretty amazing.”
When asked for comment, Markus “Notch” Persson (who created the game) had this to say:
So….get to decoding that, I guess? Notch was a bit more straightforward on Twitter:
The PC version of Minecraft just passed 8 million sales! My face is making grinning sounds, so I assume it’s grinning!

Big congratulations to Mojang and all the people that helped to turn Minecraft into the amazing sales juggernaut it has become. Nice work!
