Over 10 million people now live at least part-time in the mythical world of Minecraft, where the trees are green, the zombies are dumb and the dirt is sharp enough to cut you, fool.

Markus "Notch" Persson, creator of Minecraft, posted news of his growing minion army on his personal blog and twitter, and the game's official website proudly states on its Stats page that there are "10005777 registered users, of which 2674483 (26.72%) have bought[*] the game." If you still haven't joined the Minecraft militia, hurry and buy it now, for 25 percent off while it's still in beta mode, because we all know it won't stay that way forever.
