This weekend saw Minecon take place in London, the annual gathering of fans of a little sandbox game called Minecraft. It was the place where Minecraft: Story Mode’s first trailer was revealed as well as the announcement of Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition, but as well as that it was also a place where over 10,000 people gathered together for one game.
Because of this incredibly huge gathering, Minecon managed to smash a Guinness World Record for the “Largest convention for a single videogame”.
That’s pretty impressive considering the price of those tickets, which cost a pretty eye-watering £129.
GWR Gamer’s Edition deputy Editor Stephen Daultry said to MCV:
For a multi-genre games convention to attract 10,000 fans is a big enough feat in itself, But for a convention dedicated to a single video-game to get that number is nothing short of astonishing. This record is testament to the incredible fandom around Minecraft and the game’s ability to unlock the imaginations of millions of gamers around the world
Let’s face it, everyone’s crazy for Minecraft.
