The game's popularity cannot be overstated. With over 70 million copies sold, it is the number one best-selling game on PC, with the console and mobile versions also selling extremely well. The game's popularity and fanbase is so large that Microsoft bought ''Minecraft'' for over two ''billion'' dollars in 2014. Part of the game's success can be credited to its deep and open-ended gameplay that encourages creativity and exploration: there's no set "story" or narrative, and players are given utter freedom to decide how they want to interact with the world.

The game is notable for its frequent updates. The game was originally created by Swedish programmer Markus "Notch" Persson as a SpiritualSuccessor to a [[FreewareGames freeware]] game called ''Infiniminer''. First released in 2009, ''Minecraft'' started out very basic and only had the equivalent of Creative mode. Various other modes, such as Survival Test, Indev and Infdev were slowly added in and refined/renamed, as well as many of the now-standard features (like the day/night cycle). In the summer of 2010 it was updated to [[UsefulNotes/BetaTest Alpha]] status and moved to Beta status later that year. Despite the game being "officially" released in 2011, many new features have continued to be added. In 2014, Microsoft bought Mojang (and thus ''Minecraft'') but assured fans they planned to continue the game's ongoing development.
