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.

Enormous Maps

With 62,000x62,000x62,000 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.

Developers

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 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.

Friendly Community

You can find help with any problems on our forums or IRC channels.

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.
