Minecraft Coming to the Raspberry Pi
The guys at Raspberry Pi recently announced they have sent boards to Mojang to work on a port for the popular video game Minecraft. In a recent blog post the team stated that they are frequently asked whether the budget mini pc’s run the game and today a working port is available and will be released to public very soon!
We sent a bunch of boards out to Notch and the guys at Mojang in Stockholm a little while back, and they’ve produced a port of Minecraft: Pocket Edition which they’re calling Minecraft: Pi Edition. It’ll carry a revised feature set and support for several programming languages, so you can code direct into Minecraft before you start playing. (Or you can just – you know – play.) Owen and Daniel from Mojang say:
The possibilities are massive. You could organise the cheapest LAN party of all time, or use the Pi to learn the fundamentals of programming on a minuscule budget. It’s like hacking your way into Minecraft and modifying the game world with code, a bit like being Notch, Jeb, or Nathan, but arguably more fun and less stressful.
I have one of these beautiful little machines and am currently putting a project together to make a DIY tablet with it! i cant wait to see how well it will run!
