Ever wanted to play Minecraft?
Nope, because I've been playing Minetest. Its an open source free-to-play Minecraft clone. Of course its not quite as polished, but the vanilla game has a lot in it:
Host your own world, invite your friends and explore, build and craft cities together. Its educational and very fun to explore huge cave systems, massive mountains and vast oceans.
- Endless world (almost)
- Resource Gathering/Farming
- Day/Night Cycle
- Host/Client - LAN Connection
There is even a community developing mods to improve the base game with all kinds of new features.
In Mint you can use the software manager to install Minetest vanilla, but also a bunch of amazing mods to make it more functional and interesting.
