Minecraft creator and BAFTA winner Markus ‘Notch’ Persson has told the BBC he’s currently working on a “space game,” a project which he intends to start work on in seriousness this summer.
Speaking in a BBC interview this weekend after picking up a BAFTA Special Award in London, Persson said: “I think I’m going to make a space game, where you’re a guy on a spaceship and you have adventures in space.”
He was responding to a question about where his work will take him next. He stood down as Minecraft’s lead in December last year.
Persson confirmed in a VG247 interview immediately after picking up his BAFTA that he currently has three prototypes running and will start in earnest on his next game this summer.
