The original PC version of Minecraft has sold 14 million worldwide, a figure that takes the game's total sales past the 35 million mark, at the very least. That 35 million figure is based on numbers previously given by Mojang for other platforms, including the 10 mill for the mobile Pocket Edition - that was back in May 2013. In truth, the total sales are probably a million or two more.

Bearing in mind Mojang still has lucrative PS4 and Xbox One versions in the works, we can only imagine creator Markus 'Notch' Persson has his own Scrooge McDuck-style money bin towering over the hills of deepest Sweden, with a giant, golden beard emblazoned on the front. If he doesn't, he is truly wasting his life.
