Choose from Multiple Games

Enormous Maps

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.

Multiplayer Support

Play by yourself, locally with your friends, or online with dozens of players on a server.

Texture Packs

Not happy with the look of the textures? Change them!

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.

Modding API

Use the same Lua API to make mods for any Minetest-based game. Publish your mods on ContentDB, and contribute to others’ mods.

Large Collection of Existing Mods

There are over 1100 open source mods on ContentDB, which are ready to be used, adapted or learned from.

Friendly Community

You can find help with any problems from our community.

Open Source

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.
