0x10c Interview; Test Footage

An article on PC Gamer talks with Mojang's Markus 'Notch' Persson and Tobias Möllstam about 0x10c, their upcoming space simulation. "The goal is to have it feel a bit like Firefly," says Notch. "You can try to land on a planet but you mess up and, instead of having the ship just explode like it would in real life, the landing gear gets broken. Then you have to try to fix that by finding resources. Instead of the adventure being flying from here to here, it’s: I set the destination, oh god I hit a small asteroid and the cloaking device broke. I think they really nailed that kind of emergent aspect in FTL." They also include a link to this trailer showing footage of a "first draft" of an "art test" for the game.

I'm in love with the concept; it's the "seeing it in action" part that leaves me cold. I'm okay with less-than-stellar visuals (I still play the original X-COM for chrissake), but I'd prefer my games not to be butt ugly. I suppose visually this is a step up from Minecraft, but that isn't saying much. I'm chalking this one up to "I'm not the target audience, so move along." I'll try it out, but if it's anything like Minecraft I doubt I'll stick with it for long. I don't want to play a game that I'm embarrassed to be seen playing when my kids' posse of friends come over.

By the way graphics whores such as yourself are the reason we can't have nice things. Gotta spend 80 billion dollars on artists.

You know being all high and mighty and acting like you're sophisticated because you don't care about graphics at all sounds all noble and shit, but we all know (including yourself) that it's BS. What graphics card do you have in your machine? It's fine that you don't mind playing graphically weak games, but it annoys me when people act like they are all virtuous and 'holier than thou' because of it.

And what could The Witcher 2 have been if they didn't spend so much time on art?

An uglier game - duh. What a stupid question - it's not like The Witcher 2 wasn't a frickin' awesome RPG, and implying that it would have been 100% better if they made it 100% uglier is retarded. Stop pretending that visuals aren't part of the gaming experience, because they clearly are. How much emphasis one puts on them is subjective and differs from person to person, but pretending you don't care at all makes you just sound like a poseur.

Well fuck a duck. I may be shallow but at least I bang hot chicks and I play games that look nice.

HAHA! Me too! On the second part. Not so much on the first...
