Thank you for making Minetest known on itch too! Keep this updated we want more people to know the project!
A downloadable game for macOS and Linux
Minetest is a near-infinite-world block sandbox game and a game engine, inspired by InfiniMiner, Minecraft and the like.
Minetest is available natively for Windows, OS X, GNU/Linux, Android, and FreeBSD. It is Free/Libre and Open Source Software, released under the LGPL 2.1 or later.
With a 620003 block playing area, there's no running out of space. Yes, the world height is also near-infinite.
Play by yourself, locally with your friends, or online with dozens of players on a server.
Want to install dozens of mods at once? You can. Want to play Hunger Games? No problem!

It's an open-scorce minecaft, which is great actually! gg
Random tips related to the game:
- This page seems to be unofficial (not sure) and has outdated version of the game, so I recommend going to the link in the bottom of description to check official webpage, source code, forums to ask questions etc.
- Game launches through exe file in "bin" folder on Windows, for Linux I recommend checking Flatpak/Your distro repositories first and for Android version use Play Market or F-Droid (Android port overall is kinda bad, better play on PCs if you can)
- This game is basically an engine for "Games" and "Mods", standard game is bare bones and just boring, but there is 1500 or so mods already in built-in Content Downloader, try them out!
- Examples - MineClone 2 or 5 is a games for "Minecraft" expirience, NodeCore is a very hardcore "feature exploration" game, Mesecons is a mod that adds "redstone"-like logistics, i3 is the best inventory mod out there etc.
- There is a lot of online servers out there, and a lot of them are with actual players online most of the time, so try them too.
- No one can ban you from every server at once, because servers are independent and there is no centralised "account" system.
I don't know why this happens, but on my pixel 6 the mobile version from the play store freezes randomly, Mostly when I look up or down. Anyone know how to fix this?
Can someone tell me how to play locally with my friends without the need to host a whole server?
If I understand correctly "Host Server" checkbox in main menu will basically do same as "Open to LAN" in MC, at least if you don't have static ip, opened router ports etc.
Thank you for making this! I hope this project continues. This really brings back what made minecraft great in the first place:
A game not owned by a multimillion-megacorp made by people who love it, supported by a community who loves to play and mod it.
Can you make an game version that runs on a 32 bit linux system?
just get windows its so much better
He probably has a potato, that's why he is using 32 bit linux
Version 5.6.0 for Windows does not work for me
using Wine 1.6.20 (Gecko 2.21) on my
MX-15 Debian Jessie 32 bit Linux system.
There are builds on Debian’s repositories for x86. If you want a more recent version though, check the Debian backports or maybe even ArchLinux32 if you’re willing to deal with dependency spaghetti. (Maybe also check previous work on static builds on Minetest’s GitHub issue tracker.)
this is not an inspiration its just a texture pack
It is not. It's made from scratch using different language (and has very cool modding abilities)
does this game have a dynamic lighting system?
Lookup Minetest spherical world. And then download v5.4.1 from the official website - or get the flathub/snep version.
There is so much potential with this game.
The only thing missing are shaders.
What Are Nodes?
your game is amazing but how do your friends join your server?
Hey, We love your game and the friendly community we found on the servers, we make videos on itch.io games we find, if you are interested here it is.
theres an installer issue
wtf i cant install it whyyyy tf
outdated.. version 5.4.1 stable is out... ;-)
looks pretty cool
This game is broken
you go to bin and scroll down to open it
How do i open it
I am confused on how to open the game?
this is unofficial
Very solid game, fully open-source, but surprisingly it’s still not very popular. Has tons of mods and installer for them, look at the official site. If you want to play Minecraft-style in it, use MineClone game mode. If you don’t like Minecraft or want something original, there are other subgames and servers with different style and gameplay.
Este Juego es Para esas Personas que No les sirve el Minecraft Gratis o no lo pueden comprar (Como Yo)
Lacks some options like fov and sensitivity but noice anyway
When I first looked at this I thought it was a crappy Minecraft rip-off, but after playing around and learning more about it, I can say that this is a very cool game.
I tryed to start the game but it dossent WORK?!
how to make a game i try and it failed :(
is it safe?
how do you play multiplaye
Its a very good game, but need more things, I like very much to play that and I will be very happy if had more updates
Bruhh what a rip off on minecraft
Its like Minecraft but if you mod it or use a game like Nodecore its nothing like Minecraft.
Lightningmc - your comment is a joke. Minetest might be "inspired by" - but it is so much deeper then minecraft. Minetest is to minecraft as SketchUp is to Freecad, or garageband is to Ardour. Fundimentaly different.
ok... i wasn't saying it was bad or anything jeez...
Hey, I've updated the builds here to link to 5.2.0.
5.3.0 is coming in the next few months, to readd Android support
minetest version 5.2.0 stable released!!! https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=24516
