Minecraft is a game that has stolen the hearts, the lives, and a whole lot of time here at the nonexistent MMO Fallout office. I’d love a reason to talk about Minecraft, but sadly the game is not an MMO. Notch’s next game, however, will give me plenty of time to talk about Minecraft. Announced just recently, the game is titled 0X10c (figure out the pronunciation yourself), which we will simply refer to as Notch’s MMO from here on out.
The game is set as a sci-fi title and is very early in development, and appears to be an Eve Online style game with a very heavy focus on engineering, mining, trading, and looting. Players have a spaceship that carries a certain fixed wattage that is consumed by additions added to the ship (very Eve-like). At its heart, each ship will operate as its own fully functioning 16-bit CPU.
