Timeline Shows Minecraft’s Rise from Notch’s Idea to Minecon (INFOGRAPHIC)

Click to expand.

It’s been a long and incredible road for Minecraft, its creator Markus “Notch” Persson, and his company, Mojang. With more than 4 million copies sold, it’s something of an incredible story — how one guy made a game that has caught fire in terms of popularity, and has culminated in a convention that has sold out the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.

Now the folks over at Visual.ly have created a pretty awesome graphic tracking the progress (and the sales) of the game from June 2010 to today, the opening of Minecon and the final, full release of the game. Just click the image above to see it in all its huge glory.
