Minetest Game

Minetest Game is a simple and peaceful “sandbox game”, this means there are no goals and no built-in enemies. It is a game for the Minetest engine. The player is thrown into a world made of cubes and can attempt to explore the surface and hitchhike through grasslands, forests, deserts and jungles, explore the seas with a boat or swim and dive, and collect various materials and craft tools from them. Using a pickaxe, the player can dig into the depths and collect precious minerals, but a careless player can also be cooked by lava. Or the player could become a farmer or forester and plant trees and crops. Almost every block can be removed with the correct tool and with the collected blocks almost every building can be erected—only the imagination is the limit. Minetest Game has a focus on creativity, building and exploring worlds, rather than being a challenge, so the gameplay naturally is sandbox-style.
