Minecraft Creator "Notch" Reveals New Game With Monthly Fee

Markus "Notch" Persson has unveiled 0x10c; space game still in early development; monthly fee "likely".

Minecraft creator and Mojang co-founder Markus "Notch" Persson has announced he's working on a new game, registering the domain name "0x10c".

According to the game's site, which was set live today, Persson's new game will be space-oriented. Like Minecraft, Persson expects to release the game early to "let players shape the game as it grows". (0x10c, PC)

Ugh at monthly fees.... Well, I guess I'll withhold my judgement for now. It is Notch we're talking about. He's a good dude, but I just don't like this idea. :\

I know right....

I mean it's not like the game won't sell and it's not like he needs the money like other developers he's made a name for himself and Mojang

I was really getting excited for this aswell, after not being interested in the Scrolls game

Haha, didn't get your name at first, until seeing your picture! XD

Yeah though, I don't understand why he would go about doing a game like this... Unless it's going to be getting a TON of frequent updates like Minecraft on crack or something.

Oh well, if nothing else, he DID make Minecraft. At least we'll always have that. Like I said though, I won't judge until I actually get to SEE the game myself. :]

Notch does not have major publishers backing him/paying for servers...so yes the monthly fee is needed.

@NYC_Gamer - Did this say it was going to be an online multiplayer game? I would have thought it would be like Minecraft, where people have dedicated servers... He wouldn't need money for servers if that were true.

It's just for the multiplayer, which will be persistent. The single player will not be sub. based.

I don't understand how people expect to have multiplayer server infrastructure maintained on someone else's dime. Not really how the world works, regardless how much money Notch may or may not have.

Not to mention, depending upon how much realism he decides to go for, he could easily sink a very, very large amount of money into the development. I don't think he necessarily will, but...

Notch goes from saying he wants everyone to download his game (Minecraft) for free....

then descides his next game will have a monthly fee.

I guess the former approach didn't yield the profits he'd like.

i think it's online game. and he need the money to back it up with the server.

minecraft has online

i know.. but the server from the player.
bednet  +   893d ago
That can't be true, use dedicated servers, like minecraft...why does it have to be a single persistent world, is it an MMO? Because we all know monthly fee based MMOs don't work aside from a select few...bad idea.

I am really excited about this, but I will never ever ever pay a monthly fee for a game no matter how good it may be.

Come on Notch don't do this to us...

I'm with you man, I have yet to pay a monthly fee for any game. I understand it may cost some money to maintain servers, but surely not $15 per person per month. I'm going to stick with the single player part of this game, if there is one. Necessary or not, for me monthly fees make me itch. Lol. I already have to do that for water, sewer, trash, power, and gas, insurance, and mortgage, and I don't like those either, but kind of necessary

XBox live is no different..you pay for servers and services and those things don't run themselves..
