PC Minecraft Sells 8 Million

The Mojang Website has word that the phenomenal success of Minecraft continues, revealing the indie construction game has now sold more than eight million copies on the PC. To put this in perspective, they note that according to the Wikipedia, this makes it the ninth bestselling PC game of all time, ahead of such luminaries as StarCraft II, Myst, and Diablo II. In response to this, Notch has provided a message, which is either encoded, or really badly mistyped: "69I960EHE0A4A0IVG0EHE02500R4R0G1T30PLJ00V6V0EHE0V1U01V10U5U0VGV0V4R."

At one point there was hope that Gaslamp Games (Dungeons of Dredmor) would take up support for Terraria, but I guess that didn't pan out... And the only work being done on it lately is porting to consoles.

However the one-half of the Re-Logic crew who's still active (major reason they stopped working on Terraria is the other just had a baby) is working on a new game that is basically the same thing, but with you flying on a spaceship around to different planets. It's called Starbound: http://playstarbound.com/

Yeah, I've been following it. Looks decent, but I'm not sure if it'll capture the "spirit" of the original. I hope so.

I wish people weren't so stingy about releasing source code. I mean, I know he's still selling the game and everything, but still, id's been doing it for awhile and it hasn't seemed to hurt them. There's lots that could be done with Terraria if we had the code to work with.
