Someone Built Minecraft Creator Notch's New Home in Minecraft

Minecraft creator and Mojang co-founder Markus “Notch” Persson recently set a real estate record when he nabbed a 23,000-square foot mansion in Beverly Hills for $70 million.

It took all of one day for someone to create the house in Minecraft:

This would probably be creepy if Persson didn’t already have a significant cult of personality within the Minecraft community. When he left Mojang following the $2.5 billion Microsoft acquisition earlier this year, Persson was honored with hundreds of YouTube videos and numerous in-Minecraft tributes like this one.

Dan Bovey, the YouTuber who made the mansion in the PC version of Minecraft, said players will be able to download his work soon.
