We first wrote about Notch’s new game 0x10c last month. We think this game sounds awesome and can’t wait for it to come out. Well now we have even more of a little teaser.
Okay, okay yeah the video was made as kind of a joke and of course is “unofficial” but it even gave Notch a giggle.
So what is all the buzz about this 0x10c game currently being developed. Following is an overview.
“In a parallel universe where the space race never ended, space travel was gaining popularity amongst corporations and rich individuals.
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 0×0000 0000 0000 0001 years to last for 0×0001 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.”
