Minecraft’s Notch working on “space adventure game”

Sunday, 18th March 2012 08:40 GMT By Patrick Garratt

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.

Watch the BBC interview below. It’s rough quality, but you can see him talk about the space title at 3.00.

    Cool, I remember back in 2010 he said he wanted to “show the world what a space trading simulation should be like” (in an interview with Norwegian website Gamer.no). I guess this is an evolution of that. Looking forward to seeing what comes out of it.
