Now this is an Apple fan

If you don't happen to commute into a massive Cupertino, California corporate campus for work every day, you may as well pretend like you do. A faithful Apple fan has recreated the company's sprawling headquarters in the virtual world of Minecraft.

The indie game that started out with a small budget and big dreams has now grossed more than $80 million in sales, with more than 25 million downloads of the game triggered since its inception. That’s quite a community.

Minecraft has been fascinating the world of PC gamers for years now, and it has been slowly working its way to expand into new platforms and attract new groups of customers.

Minecraft has grown from a small project with a big dream to a huge community with more than 20 million registered users.

The game is all about construction - building the perfect world with a highly customizable set of tools, and a unique graphical style that makes this title unlike anything before it.

And of course, with that kind of massive following for a game that is all about creativity, there is no shortage of creations ranging from amusing to scandolous to downright amazing.

The Apple HQ recreation fits into the latter category, with all kinds of intricate details taken into account. Of course, the iconic Apple logo appears throughout the area. It's not just one building either. This guy, who goes by the handle Sam2Schwab, replicated the entire corporate campus.

Now the only thing that's needed is a character who looks like a virtual Tim Cook.
