How Much Money do you Make in a day? $300,000? Notch Does

#1 Posted by FunExplosions (5407 posts) -

Rather, Minecraft does. I don't really know where all that money is allocated, by since Notch (Markus Persson) almost single-handedly made the game, I'd have to assume it's mostly his. Still, divide that by four and you've got $75,000 a day. That's more than I make.

I actually started learning Java because of Minecraft (and Wurm Online etc). It's been something I've wanted to do for a long time, but Minecraft pushed me over the edge and made really want to learn.

Its a fantastic product, he deserves everything he gets. 
 
And to this point I believe he has single handed-ly made it except for music. He hired a few new people but they were mostly to allow him to start a second game he has ideas for and won't be doing a whole lot in minecraft itself.

There's no excuse for this game not to eventually become completed now.

The game will never be completed. This will turn into tf2 and it will come out 9 years later.

That money is well deserved. I haven't even started dicking around with creating anything yet. I've just been having fun exploring the various catacombs that I discover. Also, is it just me or are the enemies in this game more terrifying than any others in recent memory?

Minecraft is freakin' awesome. I just wish all the crafting stuff was explained in the game. Having to tab to the Minecraft wiki to figure out how to make stuff is no fun. I expect the $300,000 to go to that!

Sure there is, he'll soon have all the money he'll ever need.
 
Hopefully he keeps working on it.

Dear lord... he could retire off of just Minecraft after a while.

If I were Notch, I'd buy an island somewhere and have it sculpted into the 8-bit wonder of the world!  He could live for real on his own little Minecraft island.
