Despite Success, Minecraft Creator Is Still a Humble Man

“Other than starting up a self-funded company with a couple of friends, my life hasn’t changed much. I still live in a suburb just outside of Stockholm, I still don’t own a dishwasher, and I still spend my free time playing games. I have a nicer watch now, though, and I get to eat at fancier restaurants.”

–Despite selling more than 600,000 copies at roughly $13 apiece through PayPal, making him a millionaire eight times over, Minecraft creator Markus Persson, a.k.a. Notch, is still a humble man.
