Stare closely at the prototype title screen of 0x10c, the new game from Markus “Notch” Persson, the creator of Minecraft. You might need to adjust your brightness settings.
You’ll see a most unusual option. Play the game solo. Play the game in multiplayer. But what in the world is “hyperplayer”?
I asked Notch and if I hear back, I’ll let you know.
Otherwise, consider that 0x10c is a sci-fi game so ambitious that it simulates a 16-bit computer that you can then program from within the game. It’s also deep in development, and Notch likes to have fun. So…anything’s possible here.
I do like the term, though. I hope it sticks.
