Notch’s New Game Will Be A Space Sim?


Minecraft creator Notch has recently unveiled a website for his brand new game 0x10 ͨ. The game appears to be a space sim, with a hint of darkness to it that is spiced up a bit via Notch’s humor. In fact, the entire world is built around a software error!

According to the site:

In 1988, a brand new deep sleep cell was released, compatible with all popular 16 bit computers. Unfortunately, it used big endian, whereas the DCPU-16 specifications called for little endian. This led to a severe bug in the included drivers, causing a requested sleep of 0x0000 0000 0000 0001 years to last for 0x0001 0000 0000 0000 years .

It’s now the year 281 474 976 712 644 AD, and the first lost people are starting to wake up to a universe on the brink of extinction, with all remote galaxies forever lost to red shift, star formation long since ended, and massive black holes dominating the galaxy.

Notch says that the game is still early in development and many details have not yet been figured out. However he plans on releasing the game in a very early alpha just like he did with Minecraft. That way the community can grow naturally along with the game. The game seems to be a near massively multiplayer affair of some sort as both single and multplayer modes will be connected via the Internet.
