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.

And what could The Witcher 2 have been if they didn't spend so much time on art? The percentage of the average "Triple A" game development team made up of artists increases every year.

I dunno. Why don't you tell me what it could have been with your crystal ball. I only know that it was an excellent game that put a lot more expensive to produce games to shame with its quality and after sale support.

Also...the bulk of the budget for 'AAA' games goes into marketing and hype building. If developers got more of it, they could do even more.

Plus certain concepts, like freely designing your own starship like in 0x10c (from polys, not from blocks), would be complicated immensely if we were dealing with some kind of "halfway decent" graphics. Good luck getting fancy textures to look nice over arbitrary shapes.

Minecraft sold over 9.2 million according to sales figure from Notch. I think he could afford to do something slightly more than what we're seeing in that video.

In fact, if a small indie becomes as successful as Notch is saying that Minecraft made them, I think they're almost obligated to hit it out of the park with their next title in all areas compared to their last.
