The creator of the very popular Minecraft game, Markus ‘Notch’ Persson, has released footage from his new game titled “0x10c”.
According to an interview with PC Gamer, “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.”
From the above premise, the game is being developed to be a space adventure, with resource gathering like in RPG games. The gameplay will not be very difficult to grasp and “fun” will be the primary objective, added Markus.
Players will be given control of space ships and will also be able to control the players inside the ships. Developer Tobias Möllstam added, “Having a programmable and customisable ship means that there’s a lot more investment, and the game should reflect that and allow you to have it for a long time.”
When questioned about multiplayer, Markus made it clear that “right now” the game does not feature multiplayer, but will be added later once the mechanics of it are worked out.
A 0x10c release date has not been announced.
