Minecraft Sells 2.5M, Notch Interview

Minecraft originator Notch Tweets about sales of the indie sensation: "2.5 million sales! That's as much as Diablo 1 and FarCry, according to Wikipedia." On a related note, there's a video interview with Notch on PC Gamer where they spoke with him at E3. Along the way he expresses his ambition to make his game more of a game: "Reviewing Minecraft now would be kind of unfair because there are things we want to fix before then… I want to make Minecraft feel more be more like a game – so you can actually win it."

Whoa, steady on there Space Captain. People are allowed to express their opinions (I think they call that a "forum").

And yes, the premise of the game is mining and crafting, everything else is negotiable?

Though, if I read the dictionary definition of premise (state by way of introduction), describing Minecraft as a "sandbox world of endless exploration and creation" fits quite nicely. So yeh, pull your head in

(Note: I'd love more story to give more tangible meaning to the survival mode)
