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.

We need more than pronounciation, we need Eve Online type graphics! ;)

I fear it'll look like Minecraft, in space! Huge Lego blocks flying around ..

It sounds like a much more modern "tradewars" mixed with "crobots". To be honest, graphics were never among the principal reasons to play with those.

I believe that your imagination should take care of the graphics aspect of the game....

Really? Why not just use text then to really get that imagination going.

I agree that graphics are not what makes the game, but it's definitely an important factor in player immersion.
