Minecraft creator Markus Notch Persson has abandoned plans for his 0x10c SPACE simulator. While Persson's Mojang studio launched successful Open beta Game Scrolls, Persson continues to work on his SPACE title. But as of last week, game has been shelved indefinitely. According to PCMag's sister site, geek. Com, Persson told Redditor Nouht that there are no future aspirations for 0x10c. I'm going to make small games for the rest of my life. If someone wants to carry it on they can, Persson said during Team Fortress 2 live stream. Further proof: 0x10c blog, which includes early progress video, first multiplayer test, and mock-up from the game's artist, has not been updated since Nov. 1. Game hinge on fully functioning emulate 16-bit CPU, which can be used to control the player's ship or simply pass time playing games in a parallel Universe of 0x10c. Gamers would each embody characters among a group of humans who were put to sleep in 1988 as part of a sort of hibernation experiment. But, something goes awry, and everyone ends up in year 281 474 976 712 644 Universe on the brink of extinction, with all remote galaxies forever lose to red shift, star formations long since end, and massive black holes dominating the galaxy, as Persson described it. The title was put on ice, due to the fact that it wasn't very fun to play, geek. Com say. Persson's admission doesn't mean the game is dead and go forever, though. In the age of the Internet and self-starter projects, group of Redditers began discussing the possible resurrection of the 0x10c title, which is now tentatively called Project Trillek, since the former name is Mojang trademark. Persson did not immediately respond to PCMag's request for comment. He do, however, this morning tweet a cryptic message that appeared to be a comment on his decision. It was much easier to have grand plans when nobody knew who I was, he write. The gaming world doesn't need more under delivering visionaries.

Development

In the world of indie gaming, Minecraft is undoubtedly in a league of its own. Sandbox game has already sold more than 5 million copies and has spawned its own subculture of fan sites and clones. Now, game creator Notch, has announced his next project called 0x10c: multi-player space game set in 281 474 976 712 644 AD. Besides the usual space battles, trading and mining we have come to expect from these kinds of games, 0x10c will also feature a fully functioning emulate 16 bit CPU that will control your spaceship and which will be fully programmable by the player. As if having a programmable computer at the core of the game wasnt enough, 0x10c has what must be one of gaming's geekiest premises: reason it is set in 281 474 976 712 644 AD is due to the simple fact that in 0x10cs parallel universe, space races never end and that computer bug in new deep sleep cell introduce in 1988 cause large number of people to sleep for 0x0001 0000 0000 0000 years instead of plan 0x0000 0000 0000 0001 years. For now, only specifications for 16 bit processor are available and Notch hasnt released any screenshots yet. Just like he does with Minecraft, though, he plans to release early beta versions as they become available. One major difference with Minecraft is that 0x10c will feature a recurring monthly fee, as all physics and in-game computers will continue to run on cloud, even when players themselves are not online. Users will have the option to play game in single-player mode as well, though, which wo have recurring fees. In a way, this feels like natural next step up from Minecraft. While Notchs first game was built around mining and crafting tools, this new game takes this concept further by offering users a bigger world to play in and even more customization options through build-in programmable computers. It is worth noting that users will also be able to share their programs, which will surely give rise to a whole new real-world ecosystem around games and, as Notch himself acknowledge, maybe even viruses.

Announcement

Earlier in the week, this look at the hype surrounding 0x10c was posted over at GameSpot. Rather than jump in and out of articles with updates, I'll save that for the end. Enjoy. It's only been month since Minecraft creator Markus Notch persson made the announcement of his next game 0x10c, yet already developers have latched onto games hook, programmable 16-bit computer, and recreated an ecosystem of programs for it. Entire operating systems, games, and other applications have been created without release of a single bit of game code; motivating spark was simply specification for DCPU-16 chip to be used in in-game computer. 0x10c is a space-simulation game built on the premise that space race never stop, such that by 1980s, space travel was increasingly among rich and powerful of society. As often happens in sci-fi, cryogenics started to be develop, and it was compatible with 16-bit computers of Era. But thanks to encoding errors in drivers between computers and cryogenic cells, people have started waking up in the distant future on spaceship pack with 1980s technology, at a time called the Degenerate Era, when stars have stopped forming, universe is decaying, and black holes are starting to dominate. What really separates this game is that the player will have three DCPU-16 computers on their ship, and they are completely player-programmable. Notch will not be supplying the operating system or any applications for DCPU-16; it will all need to come from the player community. While it may sound a bit much to expect people to get their heads around, it people have already developed applications like this minesweeper game, development kit, and even entire operating systems. One group has even declared itself an unofficial standards committee to provide guidelines to programmers, and the popular code-hosting site GitHub has added support for DCPU-16 files. That this has appeared in less than four weeks, based on nothing more than this single page, is staggering. What makes it even more surprising is that so far, almost all programming has had to happen using assembly language lowest programming that person can do without manipulating individual 1s and 0s. Assembly used to be the best way to program for games; it provides most control and efficiency for programmer, but it can be laborious and difficult to work with. An example of a game written in assembly is Prince of Persia for Apple II. Take a look at this file to see why programmers move on to other languages, such as C. It's common occurrence nowadays for games to drip-feed potential gamers series of teaser trailers to tide them over and keep heat in the game's hype bubble via social networks and press. Crytek showed how this is do this week with its latest trailer for the upcoming CryEngine release. Make no mistake; CryEngine will be great, but gamers cannot create anything substantial for it today.
