The man from Mojang reveals some first tests for his ambitious sci-fi PC project.
The Minecraft creator was apparently tooling around with the engine for his next endeavor, and wanted to share some of the rough physics, movement, and a weapon from 0x10^c. According to Persson, viewers should forgive the lighting which he says apparently came out darker while processing the video.
Meanwhile, artist Jonatan Pöljö is developing the game's art style.
Here's a reminder of the plot for 0x10^c from the game's homepage:
In a parallel universe where the space race never ended, space travel was gaining popularity amongst corporations and rich individuals.
In 1988, a brand new deep sleep cell was released, compatible with all popular 16 bit computers. Unfortunately, it used big endian, whereas the DCPU-16 specifications called for little endian. This led to a severe bug in the included drivers, causing a requested sleep of 0x0000 0000 0000 0001 years to last for 0x0001 0000 0000 0000 years.
It's now the year 281 474 976 712 644 AD, and the first lost people are starting to wake up to a universe on the brink of extinction, with all remote galaxies forever lost to red shift, star formation long since ended, and massive black holes dominating the galaxy.
