"100K Scrolls games sold! WOOHOOO!" he wrote on Twitter.

Scrolls launched through a paid beta in early June. The game currently sells for $20 on PC and Mac, meaning it has driven revenue of $2,000,000 so far.

The game was the focus of a legal disagreement between Mojang and Bethesda, which claimed Scrolls infringed on its own trademark for the Elder Scrolls. The suit was settled in March 2012, with Mojang allowed to keep the name, so long as it did not make an Elder Scrolls competitor using the title.

Scrolls launched in the wake of Minecraft's runaway success. The game has sold well over 20 million units across PC/Mac, Xbox Live Arcade, and mobile and has catapulted creator Markus "Notch" Persson to international recognition.
