Mojang's 0x10c "put on ice" due to creative block

Mojang co-founder and Minecraft creator Markus Persson has put 0x10c, his current sandbox science-fiction game, on hold until he can overcome a "weird creative block," Persson told Polygon.

"It depends if it's just going to be me and I'm going to still feel this kind of weird pressure," he said when asked if there was a chance it won't come out. "It's not really pressure, it's just some kind of weird creative block that's been going on for too long, and [0x10c] is going to be put on ice until we can fix that."

"I'm very excited about the actual game. We have two prototypes going on now. It's not really fun yet, but it feels like it could be fun because there's nothing to do in there yet."

Unlike Minecraft, 0x10c's premise is a little harder to summarise, but Perrson knows exactly what he's trying to do.

"It's some kind of space adventure, first-persony-running-around-trying-to-keep-your-ship-whole game," he said.

He also acknowledged the game has some similarities to Minecraft: "To a small degree, in the sense that the stuff that happens to you is randomly generated," he said. "You can modify your own ship, you very much have control of how it actually works."

That looks horrible [WTF] As in the gameplay/setting/environment not the graphics.

I feel like it doesn't help that Notch doesn't know what the game's going to be.

Notch got lucky on Minecraft, he wanted mods to stop but the rest of Mojang told him he was an idiot.

Then he makes a game that no one can pronounce. I dont see this going well. At least hes doing what he likes.
