Notch’s New Game Is Really Called 0x10c
You know Notch’s new game, right? Well, the one that was supposedly called Mars Effect, but was an obvious April Fools joke? Well, it’s real, and it looks like it has a new name.
It looks like Mojang will be going with the name, 0x10c, according to a tweet on Notch’s Twitter. Yeah, it’s an error code. Oh, and it’s still going to be a Firefly-inspired space game. Mojang hasn’t released any other info on the game yet, so we’re hoping to see more of it in the future. Here’s the official website.
Notch’s New Game Will Be Titled Mars Effect
Not too long ago, Markus “Notch” Persson said that he wanted to look into the possibility of a Firefly-inspired sandbox game. Well, it looks like it was true. Mojang launched a new website today revealing the new title.
“After playing around with names like ‘Elight’, ‘Wind Commander’, and ‘Steve Online’, we finally settled on the very catchy name ‘Mars Effect’," —Notch comments on the Mars Effect's title
Hopefully, we’ll get some more info on this soon.
