Notch makes space MMO
“In a parallel universe where the space race never ended, interstellar flights began to gain popularity among corporations and the wealthy.
In 1988, an all-new deep sleep camera for interstellar flights appeared on sale, compatible with all popular 16-bit computers. Unfortunately, it used the order of writing bytes from high to low, while the DCPU-16 specifications required writing from low to high. This caused a serious bug in the attached drivers, because of which instead of the required 0x0000 0000 0000 0001 years, the sleep lasted 0x0001 0000 0000 0000 years.
The year 281 474 976 712 644 AD has come. "The first people began to wake up in the depths of a universe that is on the verge of extinction, all distant galaxies are lost in redshift, star formation has long been completed and massive black holes dominate the universe."
This is the background to the new 0x10 c global game that Notch, the creator of Minecraft, began to develop.
Game Genre - Hard Science Fictionwith a foundation on a solid theoretical basis. Players will have to do DCPU-16 programming, control a fully functional computer system, and take part in space battles against AI and other players. Abandoned spaceships loaded with good will be encountered in space, landing on planets is possible. There will be mining, trade and looting. Game modes - single and multiplayer in the Multiverse (Multiverse).
The game is still in an early stage of development. As in the case of Minecraft, Notch promises to roll out the public release in alpha form, and then fix bugs and improve the game in accordance with the wishes of tester players.
The cost of the game has not yet been decided. Most likely, there will be a monthly fee for joining the Multiverse, since the calculation of all physics and emulation of DCPU-16 computers will continue even in the absence of a player online. For a single game mode, there will definitely not be a fee.
