Notch, the veritable legend behind the explosively popular Minecraft (I’ve been playing Minecraft since Alpha), has announced his new game.

It will be a space-faring, hard sci-fi MMO game.

But, what might be one of the most interesting features in this new game is the “fully functioning computer system”.

Notch clarifies this bullet point:

The computer in the game is a fully functioning emulated 16 bit CPU that can be used to control your entire ship, or just to play games on while waiting for a large mining operation to finish.

Full specifications of the CPU will be released shortly, so the more programatically advanced of you can get a head start.
