Mindcraft: Notch Releases Early 0x10c Footage


Markus "Not"-"Minecraft"-"ch" Persson* has released some footage of his work on Elite-style space game, 0x10c (pronounced "Notch's New Game"), in which you control the pilot aboard a working spacecraft, filled with varied and vulnerable systems. PCG quotes Notch as saying: "The goal is to have it feel a bit like Firefly. You can try to land on a planet but you mess up and, instead of having the ship just explode like it would in real life, the landing gear gets broken. Then you have to try to fix that by finding resources. Instead of the adventure being flying from here to here, it’s: I set the destination, oh god I hit a small asteroid and the cloaking device broke. I think they really nailed that kind of emergent aspect in FTL.” The silent video shows lasers, lights, and some other stuff. And if it's got lasers, that means one thing: it's got pew! pew!

I haven't seen anyone hitting any asteroids to make their spaceship to hide from aliens that come during the night, so I am not sure I like it.
