For saturday and sunday only, Minecraft creator Markus Persson is giving away a free copy of Minecraft to anyone that buys it. From his blog The Word of Notch.
Well, if you buy a copy of the game (not a gift code), you get a free gift code added to your account. You can see the gift codes you have by going to http://www.minecraft.net/profile/
Tell your spouse/lover/friend/acquaintance/stranger go to http://www.minecraft.net/redeem.jsp and enter the code, and within minutes you’ll both be punching trees and installing texture packs together.
Now is a good time to get a hold of Minecraft and also to give it to someone else and spread the love of the hit building game that has countless players and customers, along with a huge community of player-run servers, mods, and texture packs. If you’re wondering, this is the big surprise that Notch was planning a few days ago. If you’ve not got it yet, get it now before it hits the next price jump as the full game comes forth.
Congratulations to Markus Persson on his upcoming marriage, hope you have a good one.
