Mojang's upcoming space sim, 0x10c, seems to be coming along nicely. This new footage demonstrates multiplayer in action along with basic gunplay and lighting... in fact, it looks a lot like Marathon to us. In a good way.
"The bot character is a placeholder model, and the flickering is a bug," reads Markus "Notch" Persson's annotation. "Most of everything is missing, but it's a start! Also, there's sound!"
0x10c promises to let players explore a dying universe at the bitter end of its life, scripting their own AI and creating their own ships to tame the hostile edge of space. Sounds good to us.
