Notch drops 0x10c, wants to work on small games

[Update: Notch has shared his thoughts on 0x10c with a blog post. "Turns out, what I love doing is making games," he wrote. "Not hyping games or trying to sell a lot of copies. I just want to experiment and develop and think and tinker and tweak."

As for Project Trillek, Notch finds it to be "absolutely amazing. I want to play this game so much, but I am not the right person to make it. Not any more. I’m convinced a new team with less public interest can make a vastly superior game than what I would make."]

Conceptually, 0x10c sounded like the stuff of dreams. A space game designed by Minecraft's Notch and inspired by such things we love as Elite and Firefly, its troubled development has come to an end. Notch had previously said the title had been "put on ice" -- that the project just wasn't coming together -- but word has since gotten out that he's done with 0x10c. Done done.

"There are no future aspirations for 0x10c," the designer said on a live stream. "If someone else at the office wants to do it, then yeah. But I'm just going to be working on small games for the rest of my life."

A shame, obviously, but sometimes even good projects need to be cut to make way for great projects. Going back to what I was saying about the game's strong premise, there is some hope for any of you wanting this kind of spacefaring experience realized.

Fans are working on an open-source game inspired by 0x10c called Project Trillek, which would be astounding were it not for the fact that this isn't that rare of an occurrence. Actually, it's still astounding. Follow Trillek's development on the official subreddit or on its website.

Notch shares his not-yet-finalized vision for 0x10c

Limited run, 20th anniversary PS4 is a PS1 throwback

Just for a second I thought this was colored like the silver PS2 I always thought was kind of sucky (or the recent Dragon Quest PS4), and then I saw those PlayStation Japan live stream pictures (via Kotaku) with that ma...more

Splatoon might just be Nintendo's most promising new game

When Nintendo announced its wacky four-on-four shooter Splatoon at E3, I thought it looked cool -- spraying ink on the battlefield and then swimming around in said ink is cool -- but I didn't freak out like some people. Havi...more

Shovel Knight looks great in 16-bit, Aegis Defenders just looks great

Oh my goooddd. How did I miss this until now? It's like a Nausicaa game. Thank you sir Shovel Knight for making a cross over appearance (above) in Aegis Defenders, which is how it came to my attention.  The Kickstarter already passed its initial funding goal and its PS4 stretch goal. Local co-op and a Wii U version are up next. Here's hoping. This looks amazing. more
