Markus "Notch" Persson has hit a stumbling block with vast customisable space game 0x10c, leaving the project's future uncertain.
When Polygon asked whether 0x10C will definitely release in the fullness of time, Persson remained incredibly cagey on the subject. "It depends if it's just going to be me and I'm going to still feel this kind of weird pressure," he said. "It's not really pressure, it's just some kind of weird creative block that's been going on for too long, and [0x10c] is going to be put on ice until we can fix that. I'm very excited about the actual game."
In terms of major hurdles, Persson is worried that 0X10C might not actually be enjoyable to play. "It's not really fun yet," he admitted, "but it feels like it could be fun because there's nothing to do in there yet."
“I haven’t decided yet if we want to have some kind of story” for 0x10c, Persson added. “Are we actually getting someone to write it or if we just want to leave it more open? I’m still deciding."
Mojang may expand the 0x10C team over the coming months and breathe some fresh life into the project. For now, though, don't hold your breath.
