It’s hard to not wonder what exactly Mojang AB sees in revenue from Minecraft these days and, according to Markus Persson’s AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit the indie company gathered about 33 million dollars in revenue after the sales of 1.8 million copies. “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,“ Markus said.
If you haven’t been keeping tabs on Minecraft, version 1.4 was just released, and you can read up on it here. If you’re curious but don’t want to commit the 13 dollars, then you might want to check out the free version that you can play in your internet browser on their main site. It’s missing a lot of the elements that make the survivor mode interesting, but you’ll get the idea of what the game plays and feels like from a creative standpoint.
