David & Toby cover this week's exciting goings-on, including Notch's BAFTA award, a new Minecraft companion app (definitely worth checking out), the MCX360 release, and a look at some of the outstanding features of the recent 1.2.4 update - take a look!


Notch to Make Space Game?

Notch recently commented on wanting to develop a "Firefly-like" space-faring game. Citing the classic "Elite" game as his inspiration, he is considering doing a game very much like it, "except done right."

Notch said:

"I want to run around on my ship and have to put out a fire. Like, oh crap, the cooling system failed."

He would like to begin development on the title slowly and solo, much as he did with Minecraft in its early days - then, if it got big enough, would begin development in earnest, as well as making the game available for early purchase, similar to Minecraft's Alpha days. Development hasn't actually begun on the concept title; however, since handing the reins of Minecraft to Jens "Jeb" Bergensten, Notch has begun exploring his options for creating new games.

If Notch began work on a space-faring sci-fi title where you could interact with your ship on a more personal level, would you play it? Tell us about it!


Take Home Your Own Creeper

During Minecon, J!nx was selling an extremely limited number of glow-in-the-dark creeper vinyls, and they disappeared almost instantly after the doors opened. While the glow-in-the-dark version will not be on sale again, J!nx now has a limited-edition creeper vinyl on offer, right now! If you ever wanted to get your hands on a creeper of your very own, now might be the best time - head over and check it out!

Pretty cool, huh? Oh yeah, it is awesome. You may be thinking, what is awesome? Well, physics.

The new planks are awesome. I was wondering when there was going to be a little diversity in textures of the same block type. Well done Mojang :)

P.S.: The video is probably one of the best videos regarding updates i have ever seen...

Well damn.  Notch went a different direction than I was hoping for.  Civ III in space seems like it'll never happen now.
We are The Borg. Lower your shields and surrender your ships. Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile.

It's not.. You're probably saying that because you're an Xbox fanboy. Playstation is awesome!

I really want it on PS3, so much..

I'm actually pretty excited to see what Notch will come up with. The concept of walking about your ship seems exciting!

I Vote for Notch's game!
There is no games out there that actually allows you to interact with the ship itself, or to use it to get around maybe a random generated space... Damn, i got to many ideas... most ideas comes from playing Gmod's Space mod thingy... been a few years since i last played gmod, but i remember a lot of things...

Well, in either case, i backup Notch's space-game idea!
Hell, if he need any ideas, he could just PM me ^_^ (Not that it would ever happen... but hey, one never knows :P)

I'd argue with your logic, but my shields can't deflect a wall of text of that magnitude.

Sounds like fun. I'd play it if he made it. After all, if we ever get space travel in a more open way then it will give us some training as to what to expect. :3
