Minecraft: 143,932 reasons why I wish I had developed it

The other day I came across several mentions of a little game called Minecraft, a Java based game you can play online, or purchase and download.  Not thinking much of it, I surfed on.  A little later on reddit, I came across an article on the games’ sales figures.  Hold up the train…

As of 12:05am on Sunday the 3rd of October, the website states that in the past 24 hours, 10,506 copies of the game had been purchased.

At $13.70 per copy, that’s $143,932.20 gross sales.

In one day.

That is all.
