here’s another really good inspiration for aspiring game developers.

proven yet again and over again, and very strongly with MineCraft, you dont need good art to make a million dollar game.

all it takes is an idea, and then executing it.

Minecraft has been generating more and more news, accordingly, this independantly developed “game” has sold over 200,000 copies, and caused Paypal to freeze the developer’s account due to “suspricious activity”.

In September 2010, Paypal froze Notch’s account due to “a suspicious withdrawal or deposit”. At the time, Notch said there was about €600,000 in the account (about 750,000 US dollars). As of September 12, 2010, the account has been unlocked.

A recent update released for Minecraft which returned over 1000 additional sales instantly within 24hours…and has been steadily continuing to rise.

Games like Minecraft makes me think about Farmville..another absurdly successful game. Game art? Average..Game Design? Outstanding. 80million players for Farmville.

Check it out, there’s a free version of Minecraft too.

hmm don’t really care for the game itself, but when you’ve got such great productions for marketing the product…it’s become cool.

absolutely love the trailers. definite must see.
the Need for Speed series has been in the dumps for many of its cycles…this year it finally looks like its back on its feet with an all new Hot Pursuit.
