Multiplayer infinite-world block sandbox
Minetest is a Minecraft / Infiniminer inspired game, currently under active development.
It is a “sandbox” game in which players explore an expansive world made of harvestable blocks. There are mountains, dungeons and very deep caves to mine from. Harvested blocks can be crafted into tools or objects, and/or attached to other blocks in the world. There is also a multi-player mode with a number of active servers.
Minetest has a server-side Lua modding API, which makes it possible to add and modify content in easy-to-write mods.
