The recent game of Markus Notch Persson is all about a horse and a ball. It is titled ‘Cliffhorse’. This is the first title to see light since Minecraft.
In the game, you play as a brown horse that trots around a mountainous landscape, pushing around a huge ball the vaguely bears a resemblance to a cow with spot of brown and white skin.
It took Notch 2 hours with the Unity game engine, a handful of free assets and a lot of encouragement from the public to create this game, which is free to download. Notch said, “I also threw in a loving jab at paying for early access, which is how Minecraft got here at all”.
Although it is not needed, you can purchase ‘early access’ to Cliffhorse with doge coin, a meme-inspired crytocurrency beloved by the Swedish developer. The game has already made 280,000 doges, which accounts to a $100.
Right now, Cliffhorse is available on Windows PC for free on its website. Notch refers to Cliffhorse as being in ‘early access’ although there is ‘no guarantee of future updates’.
“I can’t believe this somehow ended up being my first commercial game after Minecraft,” said Notch on Twitter this morning. At the time, Notch added, Cliffhorse had brought in revenue of 280,000 Dogecoin ($100).
