If you haven’t heard of Minecraft by now, and are on this website or the internet in general, I really don’t have any clever jokes or even insults that could capture my disbelief. It’s creator, Notch, is currently working on an even more ambitious project. It is a science fiction game called 0×10^c
The first real footage of 0×10^c to be released is a compilation of tests. These tests show off some pretty impressive features for the game when compared to it’s predecessor. It shows us it’s rope physics, dynamic lighting, and a computer. There are also bobble effects and material physics that seem to affect how easily a player can move on them. And that’s pretty much all there is to the video.
The game’s website features a full list of features, which you can read below.
- 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.
Of those listed, I am most interested in the economy system. Tell us in the IGM forums what you look forward to most about 0×10^c!
Notch plans to use an alpha funding system similar to the one used with Minecraft, though multiplayer will likely be subscription based. The game is not yet ready for purchase, but by the looks of things it is coming along quite nicely.
