Minecraft creator discusses potential plans.

Minecraft creator Markus 'Notch' Persson has discussed potential plans for a new space game with PC Gamer. He isn't necessarily developing it, but instead is exploring his options since he's handed over Minecraft development to other members of his team.

He specifically cited the space trading title Elite as a potential influence for his space game. Other games have released in the genre since Elite came out in 1984, but Notch would says his game would draw from the beloved title, "except done right."

Notch doesn't want you to just be the spaceship, though. Instead his vision is "a space game that's more like Firefly," where you are a character on the ship, not just the ship itself. "I want to run around on my ship and have to put out a fire. Like, oh crap, the cooling system failed."

Then the goal would be to slowly ramp up development after working on it alone for some time. Once it reaches a playable state, Notch would start selling it in an early version the way he did with Minecraft.

Would you play a space game made by Notch? Let us know in the comments below.
