Minecraft developer Markus "Notch" Persson is doing extremely well for himself. His game isn't even finished yet, and he's already surpassed 100,000 sales. On his blog, he's given us an update on where the money is going and what the future will hold.
"A close friend and I will be starting up a new company together," he writes. "That company will continue to develop Minecraft. I will be the main developer, and I will keep working on it just as I have now, but there will be people supporting me, such as an artist, a web site developer and a business guy to help sort out all deals and make sure that things like the Creeper plushies actually happens."
Notch's unnamed friend will lead development on a game they've been thinking of creating for years. It'll be created alongside Minecraft, and "everyone working at the company will be involved in both projects to some degree."
There's nothing like a good living-the-dream story to start your day.
