It’s in space!
The creator of Minecraft, Notch, has revealed not only the title of his next game, but also some general information about it. The game’s story takes place in the year 281 474 976 712 644 AD with the “universe on the brink of extinction” (how does that even work?) and people waking up to it after a programming error had caused them to sleep for a shit ton of time. I’m guessing the player will take on the role of one of those people and try to rebuild/save/survive in space under these conditions.
Notch promises science fiction, loot, mining and duct tape amongst other things. A release date, pricing or other specifics were not given, but they’re aiming for a similar business model as the one that made Miecraft such a success. Read up on it yourself if you feel so inclined.
