I’m going all gaga now, 1000 sales in 24 hours!

First they gave Minecraft a huge mention on the Team Fortress 2 blog, then the interview with PC Gamer came online. Not only is TF2 one of my favorite games ever, and I subscribe to PC Gamer (my favorite PC gaming magazine), a lot of other people enjoy them as well.

There’s a thunderstorm here at the moment. Lightning strikes and heavy rain. And then the sales went up to 1000 copies sold in a 24 hour period.


I’m not sure what to do! I’m honored, happy and proud, all at the same time. Thank you, everyone, who have tried the game, or bought it, or talked to their friends about it, or mentioned it on their billions of views per day websites.

In more concrete news, I noticed that BIGJam starts next week. I will release the SMP server before I leave for that. It might be buggy, but I promise to fix it when I get back. It will be missing mobs. Mobs will come later on, and when they’re in, the game will officially be in beta, and the price will go up to 14.95 euro.
While in beta, I will start polishing the game and adding alternative payment providers for people who can’t use paypal, and keep piling in new content.
