I think Notch could create a version of Pong and sell a million copies @ $10 each.  He might get hate mail after that, but his largest problem is simply going to be getting people to be genuinely but constructively critical of his work and offering legitimate suggestions for whatever he comes up with.

Now if he could put in a "mini-game" or elements of SpaceWar..... that would be impressive!

Alright, all this controversy circling Sony's PS3 and Minecraft is being way blown out of proportion! They couldn't get it together at the moment, but if in the future after XBox has had it's sales with Minecraft, Sony has to pull some strings. Or else they are bound to lose money. I have nothing but respect for the companies of Mojang and Sony, but this just couldn't happen now and that's that. So move on and look at the possibilities that XBox can open for Minecraft. And also what the PC version still has in store! Now I'm going to switch gears here and talk about Notch's game. The concept of this Space scenario is great. I think Notch is one of those guys who can generate and produce ideas better on his own like me, but what makes him a very great man and gamemaker is to put his projects in the open and work with those around him. A tag team of skills like that is bound to produce some great work! Onto the game, to move around your ship, operate it, and disembark from it would be amazing! I would like to think of it as Zelda's "The Wind Waker"'s boat except with more freedom to move around on your spaceship, to land on other planets, and to aimlessly roam space blowing up meteors. This game cannot be expected to have great things as of now, but in the future we can foresee plenty of open minded possibilities for such a game. All we can do is stand behind Notch and root him on, so I end my rant with this...
GO NOTCH!!!!!!! :)

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!

Ummm, there's a million of them.. X3Reunion and X3Terran Conflict being two more recent massive and even now DRM-Free ones I can think of. It would take notch 10 to 20 years to even try to recreate that game by himself based on his speed with the (simple by comparison) Minecraft... Really, any dev working by themself would take forever just to recreate that.

But so long as he's having fun doing it and having the rest of the company work on other projects, then what the heck. Maybe he will throw in some uniquely fun surprises and give us a modern version of Traveller! That would kick-ass!

btw: If you have a reasonably modern system play X3Terran Conflict instead of Reunion. TC is the same universe but much better.

Dang!  I spent hundreds of dollars on that game when I was a kid.  It was also some of my first "hacking" projects where I put the Traveller database library onto the help system of a VAX-11 for one of my campaigns (and blew away the crew I was game master over).  Designing spaceships for that system was half the fun, much less blowing other ships out of the sky or throwing some of those polarized hand grenades.

Now that would definitely make me nostalgic.

Because they made a deal with Microsoft that they wouldn't make the game for any other consoles. Microsoft is rather hard to refuse......

I say go for it, if its anything like minecraft i think i speak for all of us when I say I'd buy it. I'd also like to see a little Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy-like moments, such as aliens that have bottoms for faces! Okay mabye not that, but you get the picture......


P.S. Pardon the pun but I think it should be called Space-craft!!!!

I can see it now; travelling through randomly generated space, collecting raw materials, crafting items and selling the resulting items on other planets. It could be awesome. All it needs is a name; how about.......... Starcraft.......... oh, wait.

id say get a concept down and make it fit in with firefly. elements of X3 and mass effect, for example... your main character is an ex-soldier from the serenity conflict, after a combat training session (the player learns movement, using cover and combat during a 'flashback' of the conflict. Then the player chooses between multiple variations of firefly class ships. some more combat ready and others equiped specially for illegal salvage missions. now heres where notch would win the players even more. elements of dead space, the salvage mission require you to leave the ship on a spacewalk to anchor in and retrieve whatever is of value. from time to time though you might have to deal with the horror of reavers (hence dead space). just an idea but it follows the firefly universe somewhat accurately and would allow for over 100 hours of playtime if done right.
