Notch, the man credited with creating Minecraft may be working soon a brand new space game, inspired by cult TV show Firefly and under appreciated space trading title Elite. He described the project recently to PC Gamer.
He says that the game would be more about “being a guy on a ship, rather than just being the ship,” and will feature some realistic issues. “I want to run around on my ship and have to put out a fire. Like, oh crap, the cooling system failed.”
Notch hasn’t said if he would personally develop the game, or if there’s a release window, but did confirm that he would be releasing it the same way he did with Minecraft.
