Minecraft has today passed the 3 million milestone for game sales, even before the game has even been officially launched. It was only back at the end of April this year that Minecraft passed the 2 million sales mark, and before that in January that I wrote about Minecraft passing the 1 million sales mark.
Most games would be delighted to receive such sales but its creator independent developer Markus Persson has done all this without any kind of support from publishers, relying purely on viral communities to spread word about the game, and Paypal to accept payments.
Minecraft has been under development since May 10, 2009, and Pearson plans on continuing developing the Minecraft game until a finished complete game is launched, with a downloadable client (complete with fullscreen mode), custom key re mappings and possibly modding support.
