Games Notch, creator of the immensely popular and successful Minecraft, has announced his next game project. It's a multiplayer and single player space simulator with all the usual stuff like resource mining, combat, exploration, and so on. However, a very unique aspect is that each player's ship has a custom fully programmable 16bit CPU which uses a custom, hand-made instruction set. The possibilities are amazing.

Maybe it could boot Linux via simulated ARM in something less than 2 hours.


Boot from what, and how will you know if it booted at all?

A CPU without I/O is like a mathematician in a coma. ;-)
