Play this: 'Drop' by Minecraft creator Notch
by Max Slater-Robins



The man behind Minecraft, Markus 'Notch' Persson, has just launched a new, minimalistic, browser-based game called "Drop". The game, which is inspired by Super Hexagon and "the fez ending" is free-to-play and is based around cubes and hexagons. As the game starts, jumbled letters appear and the player must type out a word that is formed before the letters disappear to be replaced by more. If you missed a word, the game is over and you must start again. 

The game's design is very stark and was inspired by the ceiling in Notch's apartment as well as Super Hexagon, a barrel-based game where you play as a small triangular shape moving up a pipe. It was originally hosted on an Amazon Web Server, but was later moved to drop.notch.net and is completely free to play. 

Your first attempt will likely on last a few seconds, but after you master the skill of the game it can become very rewarding.

How about focus on Minecraft Notch, all these side projects.. no wonder you needed half a year to add 3 items and call it a massive update.

Tell that to Jeb_, the person in charge of Minecraft now. Notch has stepped down from Minecraft for quite a while now.

I don't get it. What do the cubes have to do with the letters?
