nice to see him keeping it accessible.
just read about thishttp://0x10c.com/
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 emulated 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 wasn’t enough, 0x10c has what must be one of gaming’s geekiest premises: the reason it is set in 281,474,976,712,644 AD is due to the simple fact that in 0x10c’s parallel universe, the space race never ended and that a computer bug in a new “deep sleep cell” introduced in 1988 caused a large number of people to sleep for 0×0001 0000 0000 0000 years instead of the planned 0×0000 0000 0000 0001 years.
apparently he's not going to stop players from making viruses for the ingame cpus, which is fun
i sort of resent minecraft but i don't deny that this guy is really smart and what little concept for this game that has come out is great
