Indie game sensation Minecraft surpasses 4 million copies sold

Indie sandbox building game Minecraft has sold over 4 million copies on the PC, according to the game’s official website. That number is close to blockbuster territory for any video game, and it shows that the indie game movement is alive and kicking.
The brainchild of Swedish developer Markus Persson, Minecraft allows players to use their own creativity to construct a variety of structures in a textured, cubic 3D game world. A Survival Mode adds the extra challenge of constructing buildings with limited resources while fending off advancing monsters. Although he is always looking to implement new features, Persson says fun and accessibility are his main design goals.
