We just wanted to shout out a congratulations to wildly successful Minecraft creator Notch, who has created one of the weirdo sleeper hits of the year. With virtually no promotion, only word of mouth and a reasonable price, this indie exploration and creation game has sold over a million copies. I’ll leave the implications of this on the bloated, franchise-obsessed AAA game community to your imagination.
I’m a happy owner of Minecraft myself, but I would like to say to Notch: more monsters! No need for cake!
