Shooting the breeze on Twitter, Mojang boss Markus “Notch” Persson has shown enthusiasm for Oculus Rift, a Kickstarter-funded VR headset which has attracted the likes of id’s John Carmack and teams at Valve.

“Very excited about the Oculus Rift. Can’t wait to start playing with it. If we get it to work with Java, 0x10c will support it,” the developer promised, adding that Minecraft support is up to lead developer Jens Bergensten.

0x10c is Notch’s new space exploration game, still in early development.
