Minecraft for Raspberry Pi coming 'soon'

Minecraft developer Mojang promises the building game will be free, and will let you tinker with code to change gameplay.


The perennially popular Minecraft is heading to the humble Raspberry Pi, promising owners of the dirt-cheap microcomputer the chance to play and hack the block-bashing create-a-thon for free.

On its official blog, Minecraft developer Mojang says it has "dedicated time to porting a version of Minecraft: Pocket Edition that comes with a revised feature set and support for multiple programming languages."

"You could organize the cheapest LAN party of all time," the game's creators promise, "or use the Pi to learn the fundamentals of programming on a minuscule budget."
