The name of Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson's next game will be 0x10c, he said today on his Twitter account.

No, it's not Mars Effect, as he had claimed on April Fools Day. The team is going with 0x10c, a name as bizarre as it is unpronounceable. It's also an error code.


"What happens if you try to read a 64 bit representation of 1 in a 16 bit system, but you get the endianness wrong?" Persson wrote on Twitter today.

Persson and his company, Mojang, have not yet shared much about the upcoming space game, so I'll assume you play as an IT programmer whose job is just to eliminate 0x10c errors all day. In space.
