Notch names Minecraft’s successor: 0x10c
Notch, founder and creator of Minecraft, has released news of the company’s next new game called “0x10c”. 0x10c will be a space exploration game which starts in a back story of 1988 when a new deep sleep cell is released and “compatible with all popular 16 bit computers” (eek!)
“Each ship has a generator capable of producing a fixed wattage, and everything you connect to it drains wattage. A cloaking field, for example, might require almost all the power from the generator, forcing you to turn off all computers and dim all lights in order to successfully cloak.” Notch says.
OX10C will allow players to partake in space battles, land on planets, abandoned craft packed with loot, trading system and have a virtual economy. Notch mentioned the game price is unknown at this time, but “likely there will be a monthly fee for joining the Multiverse as we are going to emulate all computers and physics even when players aren’t logged in. Single player won’t have any recurring fees.”
The website also lists out what they “hope” to included in the game upon release. My personal favorite is “Duct Tape” — how can you go wrong with that in a game?!
- 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
