Some of the details about 1.8 are trickling in.

  • Hunger. There's going to be a hunger bar.
  • EXP: An EXP bar as well, with things apparently becoming more difficult as you level up.
  • Permadeath. Wow, this is a big one. I'm really not keen on this, what with all the accidental deaths that can happen. Minecraft can be a very accident prone game, between falling down holes or ledges or getting blown up by creepers. I sure hope it can be toggled, especially on servers.
What the fuck?

Notch said he wouldn't do a hunger bar, or "anything that makes the game less fun." Making the game harder to play is not my idea of an improvement. And I wonder how "permadeath" is supposed to work, considering your character isn't really a "character" in the first place. What, your EXP resets to zero when you die? Not even Squeenix RPGs do that.

I don't know if Notch is tone deaf or just completely insane.
