    This is a space sandbox that is being developed by the creator of Minecraft. I have been watching it for a while, but there have been no updates until recently.

    In summary:
    - customizable and programmable ships
    - planet mining
    - space combat

    What really appeals to me is the programming aspect of the game. Similar to Minecraft, this new game allows the player to create their own content, meaning you get to actually play the game rather than just experience it (which is a common problem with new games).

    My first thought was to enact my Star Trek fantasies in this new universe, but I'm sure there will be tons of Enterprises and Millenium Falcons all over the place. On second thought I think I will draw inspiration from a less mainstream universe that occupied many of my waking hours in high school, Escape Velocity.

    As a computer science uni student and Minecraft fan, I've been really intrigued to see where Notch/Mojang goes with the game.

    *shameless plug* I run the wiki for it! :D

    Now if only you ran the fan forum for it, I'm getting tired of Curse/CitricSquid monopolizing all of the forums for games of Mojang's.

    It's run by my friends at Enjin who help me with the wiki and are doing great things with their platform for gamers. :)

    Ahhh nevermind, I see curse has started their own wiki and forums for the game but since notch isn't linking to them they don't get any of the members lmao! Score 1 for Notch 0 for Curse!

    Can't wait to run a few POKEs and PEEKs at it. The actual "GUI" command line of the computers looks like a tribute to the C64.

    This is a Notch game? I'll buy it now, unseen.

    Anyone watch his multiplayer test stream for the game? It was quite nice.
