Notch has teased something called Hyperplayer Mode in 0x10c, his latest title currently in development. The mode is listed above the multiplayer and single-player options in the game’s title screen. The image, posted through here was tweeted by Notch along with: “Niiiice, the title screen uses the unified rendering and lighting code now!” Whatever that means. We’re developmentally challenged. Take that for what it means or with ambiguous connotations. We don’t really care either way. Not much is known about the game so far, only that it takes place in the future inside a parallel universe where players will participate in space battles, mining, trading, and looting. Thanks, GameSpy.

A teaser video for Notch’s 0x10c space sim is below. The developer said the title is still “extremely early in development,” but like with Minecraft, Mojang expects to release it early to allow the players help “shape the game as it grows.” The title’s cost is still undecided, but “it’s likely there will be a monthly fee for joining the Multiverse,” as the team plans to “emulate all computers and physics even when players aren’t logged in.” The single-player portion won’t be saddled with any recurring fees. Thanks, EvilAvatar.

“Piracy is not a solution to anything,” says Minecraft creator Notch. The Swedish developer has never really hidden his views on piracy. Summarised, the Minecraft creator considers software theft a “minor offense” overall, something on par with jaywalking or littering.
It’s not really surprising then, that when a fan commented that he loved the game but couldn’t afford a copy for himself, the creator suggested that he “just pirate it“. Almost as an afterthought, “don’t forget to feel bad.”
