Notch's Upcoming Space Game Will Have a Multiplayer Monthly Fee. And Fully Functional Computers.

Minecraft creator Markus "Notch Persson" has been tweeting all sorts of details about his upcoming space simulator, the oddly titled 0x10c.

There's a full unofficial roundup over at a new website called 0x10.cc, but here's some of the salient stuff:

  • There will be a monthly fee for multiplayer, because free-to-play games are "a scam," Persson says. Single-player mode will not have any recurring fees.
  • You'll have your own ship (that you can build). On that ship, you'll have your own computer (that you can use to program things).
  • There will be an alpha phase, like there was for Minecraft.
  • The graphics will be "simple."
  • "I won't stop viruses, the players will have to do that themselves."
  • Duct tape fixes everything.
