Thanks, Vyc, though it was only meant to be a simple one, as the scene represents something deviously cryptic, and which as yet nobody has demystified (it's been over a year). The only hints necessary are the hat, the sign, and the vastness of space. Can you guess what it means? Think back to one of Notch's game development endeavours, but which he regrettably abandoned (the sign is your best clue here). :O_o:

Well something is clearly walking toward the ocean from what I can tell.

Hmm.. I'm not sure what you mean. :O_o:
What the toon represents is the act of Notch abandoning his space game '10x0c', effectively 'throwing down his hat' (in defeat) back to Earth (as opposed to facing the challenge of his space game, up in space). The hat (his iconic black fedora) is portrayed as a meteorite that has crash-landed. The sign text 'Ocean Biome 10 km' is a poignant clue in that the pronunciation of '10x0c' is "Ten to the C", hence the sign text alludes to '10 kms to the sea'. Clever, eh? Well, I thought so. ;)
Anyway, now everyone knows. :dance:

You may notice a strange, meteor-like object that has crash landed. What could it mean? :O_o:
