20110113million

It comes as no surprise to anybody with an eye for delightful design and the ability to do basic maths, but indie sweetheart Minecraft has topped the one million milestone.

Congratulations, Notch! Well done, tasteful gamers everywhere! Hooray for independents and innovation! And other suitable exclamations!

So powerful is the love for Minecraft that the news of the shining new million mark has, yet again, brought the game’s website crashing down under the weight of congratulatory traffic.

When it comes back up, you can check out the stats page and see for yourself how the numbers are still climbing.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    Congrats to Notch and the team, an amazing success for something that’s not even nearly done yet. My son’s put hours and hours into creating stuff. And his stuff’s all better than mine. Gah!
