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.
Otherwise, feel free to look at the changelog.

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 7, 8, 8.1 and 10. May work on other versions, but not officially supported.

Stuck? See help on getting Minetest on Windows.

You can also 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).

Android

Android 4.0 or later is recommended.

Get it on Google Play

Alternatively, install from F-Droid or download the APK.

Note: Please do not use unofficial builds from the Play store. They may contain excessive adverts or spyware, or be distributed under proprietary terms.

GNU/Linux

Packages

Those may be out of date at times. If they are too out of date, you can build from source.

FreeBSD

Package manager

On FreeBSD 9.1 and newer, you can use the official pre-built packages: pkg install minetest minetest_game

Compile using ports

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

macOS

macOS 10.10 or later is recommended.

Source code
