logo Notch Announces 0x10c (A New Space Themed Game)

Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson has announced a new space-themed game in the works, which he’s calling 0x10c.

The game is still very early in development, but here is a list of things we hope to include:

  • Hard science fiction.
  • Lots of engineering.
  • Fully working computer system.
  • Space battles against the AI or other players.
  • Abandoned ships full of loot.
  • Duct tape!
  • Seamlessly landing on planets.
  • Advanced economy system.
  • Random encounters.
  • Mining, trading, and looting.
  • Single and multi player connected via the multiverse.

Details are pretty sparse at the moment, but the premise sounds interesting if he can pull it off.
