‘Notch’ (creator of Minecraft) has revealed the amount of money made from Minecraft in a Q&A session.
A lot. It all ends up in an account somewhere, and I try not to look at it. I get a normal salary these days for day to day stuff, but there’s a big pile somewhere.
The game sold about 800,000 copies at 9.95 euro and then so far 1 million more at 14.95 euro. Paypal takes a cut, there are taxes, and such, but it’s still a huge wad of money.
So Notch is a millionaire! You would think with all that money he’d release the game already!
