Technically his first commercial game since Minecraft took the world by storm, Markus "Notch" Persson's Cliffhorse puts players in control of a horse near some cliffs. Well, hills mostly, but Hillhorse sounds silly.


In fact the whole thing is a bit silly, just a bit of fluff tossed together in the Unity engine and announced via a series of tongue-in-cheek tweets.

And while you don't really have to donate in order to download the game, available now at, Notch tweeted earlier today that the game had received around $100 worth of Dogecoin in donations.


As for the game, it's pretty much as I described it in the opener. You've got a horse that sticks to the ground, a ball that uses the same skin as the horse, and a random 3D landscape to wander over. There's not even any sound.

Congratulations, Notch, on your new-found success.
