The creator of the popular Minecraft online game has revealed that he is working on a new science-fiction game that will require a monthly subscription.

 
Markus Persson, more commonly known as Notch, and his game studio Mojang struck gold with Minecraft, an internet-based title that focuses on mining and construction. Nearly 5.5 million copies of the game have been sold, despite it lacking a publisher or marketer, showing that good games can make it without the backing of a big name.
 
Now Persson has turned his attention to a new game, tentatively titled 0×10c, which is probably not as catchy a name as Minecraft. This game will focus on a group of humans who wake up 281 billion years in the future after being put in deep sleep, entering a dystopian world that is on the brink of destruction.
 
 
Gameplay will involve space battles, looting, trading and planet mining. Users will also have to programme their own 16-bit CPUs to power their spaceships, an interesting approach that shows that Mojang is still thinking outside the box.
 
Persson said that the game will follow hard science-fiction rules, which means that they will be theoretically possible or plausible ideas, rather than completely far-fetched adventures. He is even encouraging experts in scientific fields to correct him on any mistakes he makes.
