[LINK] Notch's new game—yay hard SF

The computer in the game is a fully functioning emulated 16 bit CPU that can be used to control your entire ship, or just to play games on while waiting for a large mining operation to finish.

This looks like it’ll be fun—a sort of Minecraft-style Elite homage with a multiverse, a quirky hard sci-fi plot and duct tape.

Now, if only Notch would see sense and stop using Java (because it’s fecking dreadful.)
