Before we go any further, let me assure you that this has absolutely nothing to do with Minecraft. That said, I'm just going to take a moment here to express how delighted I am to stumble across an intriguing Kickstarter that is not exclusive to the mobile platform. An open world steampunk MMORPG, Notch's aesthetics remind me a lot of Ankama's Wakfu and SuperGiant Games's Bastion. Intended for both the PC and the mobile platform, Notch is apparently going to allow you to collaborate to build entire worlds. To quote the Kickstarter page, "Instead of killing boars or delivering magical amulets, you'll be creating your own villages, cities, religions and even governments. As you progress in the game, more advanced buildings will become available to you, going from farms and mud houses to holograms and space stations."

Does that sound intriguing to you? Because it does to me. I'm not really sure how much I fancy the whole 'location-based social networking application' bit or the Farmville reference in an interview that they conducted with Nerd-Age.

But, still! It's worth a gander and a dollar if you're so inclined towards helping out. Check out the Kickstarter page here.
