Did you ever play Minecraft
? I did, and I like it, but not as much as the fact that it was created by one single programmer which by now made an incredible amount of money with it. On monday last week for example, the day after the servers went offline, he made $350000
. In one single day!
By taking a look at the stats page
, you can even see how much he earned until today. At the time of this writing, it were 266383 people who bought the game, this is about 2.5 million euro gross.
Incredible. This guy had not only a nice game idea but also a lot of luck. :)
