In lieu of his Ludum Dare game, Notch today launched a Unity game called Drop
, available online for free
. Notch is, of course, the mastermind behind Minecraft
, and Drop
is a quick exercise in rapid wordsmithery, spinning and catchy tunes.
Notch attributes inspiration for Drop
to Super Hexagon
, the ceiling of his apartment
and the ending of Fez
, and after playing for a little while, that all sounds about right. We would also throw in a vibe from Pippin Barr's 30 Flights of Loathing
and Pottermore's Spells
If you have some time today, maybe make nimble your fingers and give Drop
a go. But first try to say that sentence five times fast.
