The lights are on
Recently Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson tweeted a
screen grab of a menu option that is sure to make dedicated Minecraft fans lose
contained no words, just the simple image shown below, which reveals a "Hardcore"
option for the game that will delete your entire game world if you die.
The procedurally generated, one-of-a-kind worlds are one of
the biggest draws of Minecraft, along with the ability to sculpt that world to
your liking. The threat of losing all of that upon death should make surprise
encounters with Creepers all the more terrifying.
Notch also tweeted a
follow-up image of an Ultra Hardcore option, which is worth a chuckle:
Hopefully that one doesn't make it into the game.
