0x10c Payment Model Confirmed [Updated]

Notch has made the following tweets :

0x10c will cost 200 space credits during pre-alpha and alpha, 300 credits during beta, and 400 credits when it’s feature complete. 

I don’t know how much in actual moneys yet. I just meant to say I will use the same model as Minecraft used. It seemed to work!

Minecraft’s model included only a one off payment, so it is likely 0x10c will to as opposed to the earlier speculated monthly subscription model. The earlier you purchase the game the cheaper it will cost so get your copy for pre-alpha testing as soon as it is available! Minecraft initially costed €9.95 (~ $13/~£8) during the alpha phase, so we could be expecting similar pricing, or something completely different!

Notch has made another tweet: @GamesC3 single player won’t have any subscription fees. 

No mention about  online multiplayer, so we could still be looking at a subscription fee there.

  • So how much will subscription be? $10, I don't really know. $5, definitely. I'm not really up to paying too much, but I'll definitely pay if it's good. Besides, if this is as successful as Minecraft, subscription can be $5 and they'll have a surplus from the amount of players. Anyway, can't wait for this!!

  • This made me happy. I don't like monthly payment or ingame-stuff-payment. I like to pay once, even if it means a huge sum of money. Then I know that I can play as much as I want without some stupid pop-up text making commercial about how cheap I can buy stuff for real money all the time.

  • It most definitely will have a fee for "online multiplayer" since the universe is suppose to be online all the time, meaning it will be Mojang running the computers to do this (which costs them maintenance and running fee's).









    You're right. I updated the news article on our front page which hasn't been reflected here.

    Notch made the following tweet:

    No mention about online multiplayer, so we could still be looking at a subscription fee there. When he said he was using Minecraft's model, that threw me off.
