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.

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.

That's why anytime soon everyone install a graphic package to get at least better textures.
