Thank you for trying out Minetest.
Are you a new user?
Have a look at our Getting Started, FAQ and Tutorials pages on our wiki.

You may also want to look at some subgames. Subgames form a foundation for the game using Lua scripts. Different subgames have different objectives, such as survival, building or Player vs Player. Usually Minetest comes with Minetest Game, to supply the default items and blocks. You can then add mods on top of a subgame in order to customize your experience further.

Windows

Works on Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10.

Help on getting Minetest for Windows

Unofficial builds

Get the latest development version of Minetest from builds made by community members. These builds are more recent than the officially released builds and contain new features (at the cost of stability).

OS X

OS X 10.8 or later is recommended.

GNU/Linux

Packages (stable)

Those may be out of date at times. If they are too out of date, you can build from source.

Packages (daily, unstable)

Android

Android 4.0 or later is recommended.

Android versions of Minetest are still in development and have bugs.

Minetest-0.4.15.apk (works with most devices)
You can also install it easily from the Google Play Store or from F-Droid.

Note: Please do not download unofficial Minetest builds from the Google Play app store. The builds found there may contain excessive adverts or spyware. They may be distributed under proprietary terms, without the source code, which makes them illegal to develop. They may be old or unsupported.

FreeBSD

There is a FreeBSD port.

You can compile minetest and minetest_game from sources or use pkg (on FreeBSD 9.1 and newer).

Compilation method

You can compile minetest and choose easily minetest options using the FreeBSD port dialogs.

  cd /usr/ports/games/minetest
  make install
  cd /usr/ports/games/minetest_game
  make install

Package method

FreeBSD official packages have their own pre-built packages: pkg install minetest minetest_game

Source code

Get the latest stable or development source code from GitHub.
You will probably want minetest_game as well. Put the game in your games directory.

See README.txt for details on how to compile.
