Minecraft is a popular building game, which is mostly famous for its creative and survival aspects.
People think that Minecraft might have also become popular with the help of minigames, maps and YouTubers. One of these famous YouTubers is Sky Does Minecraft, of which this wikia primarily focuses on.
It was created by Swedish gamer Markus "Notch" Persson in 2009. He never thought that the game would become so popular. His original plan was just to make Minecraft to raise some money for another game, RubyDung. But his original plans were cancelled when Minecraft surged in popularity. Minecraft is also credited for making Mojang more popularized, and it got 1,000,000 sales in 2011, just two years after the game was officially released.
In September 2014, Mojang was bought by Microsoft for 2.5 billion US dollars. Mojang posted on their website confirming this.
