If you don’t know who Notch is by now, you might want to step out from under your rock on Mars. The creator of the mega-hit Minecraft, he’s now working on an entirely new game, 0x10c.

If you wish to be under a rock on mars but aren’t, no worries; you’ll have an opportunity to do so considering the game is set in space. The premise is that you supposedly wake up a few millions of years too late due to a bug in your “deep sleep cell.” The galaxy is now a chaotic mess, which always serves as a nice backdrop for a game. The game will be “Hard Sci-fi”, whatever that means. Here’s a full list of features straight from the game’s site:

  • Lots of engineering.
  • Fully working computer system.
  • Space battles against the AI or other players.
  • Abandoned ships full of loot.
  • Duct tape!
  • Seamlessly landing on planets.
  • Advanced economy system.
  • Random encounters.
  • Mining, trading, and looting.
  • Single and multi player connected via the multiverse.

You’ll have a ship to travel around the galaxy with, and it uses a generator system that drains wattage for everything you do, so you need to use power strategically. One of the coolest features is the ship’s computer, which is a “fully functioning emulated 16 bit CPU that can be used to control your entire ship, or just to play games on while waiting for a large mining operation to finish.”

Much like Minecraft, the game will release early in order to support player feedback. The multi-player component will likely have some sort of monthly fee, while playing the single-player just involves a one-time buy.
