Choose from Multiple Games
There are many games to choose from. You could survive in a harsh environment, build creatively, or fight other players. Just download a game or connect to a server.
With 62,000 × 62,000 × 62,000 blocks, there’s no running out of space. You can mine 31,000 blocks down, or build 31,000 blocks up.
Play by yourself, locally with your friends, or online with dozens of players on a server.

Beautiful Map Generators
Choose from many different fast map generators included in the engine, or install one as a mod.
Make a Game
Create your own voxel game using our Lua API. No need to worry about tricky voxel rendering or networking; instead, write scripts to add items and control game play.
Use the same Lua API to make mods for any Minetest-based game. Publish your mods on the forums, and contribute to others’ mods.
Large Collection of Existing Mods
There are over 1,000 open source mods on our forums which are ready to be used, adapted or learned from.
You can find help with any problems on our forums or IRC channels.
The engine is open source and transparently developed. Submit an issue for anything you’re missing, or get the source code and dig into it yourself.
