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.

Well, when your ships blows up in a gorgeous explosion, you know you've got a kernel panic.

Maybe not what your were expecting, but that's still *some* output :-D
