+ - Minecraft Creator Announces 'Mars Effect,' a Space Sandbox Game->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Notch posted the official page of “Mars Effect” today, saying through Twitter, “it’s a completely different game! Our takes place in space, and focuses on characters, and lets you land on planets!!” He gives more detailed on the new website, noting the game will be based around hard science fiction (think Star Trek sci-fi) and puts characters in control of a character rather than just a ship. Similar to Minecraft, it will be a free-roaming game, but with a full economic system, different planets, customizable ships, space battles against AI, and other features. There will also be an in-game, 16-bit computer. Notch also took the chance to poke fun at “Mass Effect,” noting it will have “A game ending that makes sense.”"
