Minetest Game


Minetest Game (abbreviated MTG) is a simple and peaceful sandbox game, with no real goals or built-in enemy mobs.

While it provides a basic gameplay experience out of the box, it is best played with mods.

Minetest Game is currently in maintenance-only mode, meaning it will not see new gameplay features or anything else that breaks compatibility (See #2710).

The Minetest Game GitHub master HEAD is generally compatible with the GitHub master HEAD of the Minetest engine.

Additionally, when the Minetest engine is tagged to be a certain version (e.g. 0.4.10), Minetest Game is tagged with the version, too.

When stable releases are made, Minetest Game and the Minetest engine is packaged and made available at www.minetest.net.
