Someone already recreated Notch’s insane new mansion in Minecraft

This certainly would have been cheaper.

How fitting is it to see a version of a megamansion built in the video game that earned a developer the money to buy said megamansion.

Markus “Notch” Persson, the creator of Minecraft, recently bought a mansion in Beverly Hills for $70 million. That crazy amount of money pays for a home that has its own movie theater and candy room. 

You can take a tour of the Minecraft version of the home, which looks like a blockified episode of Cribs, thanks to builder Dan Bovey’s video on YouTube. 

Notch effectively bankrolled the new home via Microsoft‘s purchase of the Minecraft development studio for $2.5 billion. You don’t need to worry about him paying for the upkeep, either, considering the cash he likely brought in on the franchise rights before the Microsoft buyout.
