0x10'c (notch's new space game)

It's still super early but this game is suppose to be about,
Quote from: The Website
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.

So a space game that's not all about shooting other ships out of space. I'm optimistic and I look forward to see how it goes. Then again this is notch and he's supper lazy  ::)

We'll see. I'm kind of interested but I dunno.
I guess for now I need to see what it looks like first.

Given that he basically rushed to deploy Minecraft and then left it somewhat uncooked on simmer forever I am not going to be real optimistic about anything he does.

he loses interest in stuff really fast.
it seems like he doesn't really want to sit down and do all the boring stuff, he will work on something as long as it interests him.
that's why you see him work on all this new stuff that excites him only to leave it half undone.

it looks interesting, but i'm not expecting too much from the guy.

The EVEonline crowd is already wondering the same thing.

Wow, why does everyone still say that Minecraft is a ripoff? He actually said that he wanted to make Minecraft after having played infiniminer, which was a TINY game that was HARDLY DEVELOPED AT ALL and was actually ABANDONED and made OPEN SOURCE by the creator.

Infiniminer still had more tools and a number of features which minecraft didn't have.

And ripoff isn't necessarilly an entirely negative label. A whole ton of great stuff is pretty unoriginal. Doesn;t change the fact that Notch has made a career of making copies of popular web games.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I really like the concept of the ships having simulated programmable computers, with different parts of the ship needing power and such. I can foresee this game being lots of fun for programmers. It would be awesome if you could sell your ship programs on some sort of in-game marketplace.

Notch's MO is that he takes cult games and remakes them in his own way. Minecraft was a riff on mining games that were popular at the time and he got lucky with it. His earlier works are also pretty much rips of iPod games.

He has no real track record with original creations, so take whatever he releases with a grain of salt.

Crap i didn't read this part

Quote from: The Website
The cost of the game is still undecided, but it's 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.

Unless it's like a buck no dice. Isn't there a reason why most MMO's are going free to play.
