Notch (of Minecraft Fame) Puts His New Game 0x10c Online

0x10c isn’t feature complete, but it’s up online for you to checkout. Looks cool, but in a bit of a retro, 2001 feel to it. Not sure how this one will turn out. The Story does have some more information though:

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.
