As reported on Eurogamer , Creative Assembly are doing their best to get Notch motion captured for their next Total War game. Where/when/how/why is this happening? That's still something of a mystery. Motion capture is a hot topic on PC Gamer today. Even horses are at it.
Earlier today Creative Assembly sent Notch a tweet, saying "Hey Notch. How would you like to be in the next Total War game?"
Notch replied : "It's going to feature fat guys sitting around a lot and grunting when they finally do stand up?" before confirming his interest : "'cause if it does, I'm DOWN! YEAH!! Assuming schedule works out and all that. When? Where? How?"
Since those tweets, Community man at Creative Assembly, Craig Laylock has shed some light into the invite: "I love that he enjoys making games for the fun of making good games. That's what it's all about."
Notch is the hatted creator of Minecraft. We'll have more on the Total War/Notch collaboration as and when it breaks.
