Minetest-c55 is one of the first InfiniMiner/Minecraft(/whatever) inspired games (started October 2010), with a goal of taking the survival multiplayer gameplay to a slightly different direction. It also serves as a learning project for me, celeron55, the author of the game. I am making it as a hobby, so progress isn't particularly fast. If you need a reminder of this project, the blog has an RSS feed. The main design philosophy is to keep it technically simple, stable and portable. It will be kept lightweight enough to run on fairly old hardware. It runs playably on a laptop with Intel 945GM graphics. It is released under the GPL, with the intention that that way it is a lot easier to use by Linux users and people can report and help fix bugs more effecively. This game is under development, and as of now, the game does not really differ from Minecraft except for having a lot less features. Still, playing is quite fun already, especially for people who have not been able to experie
Survival mode with inventory and crafting. This mode is being currently developed.
Creative mode with infinite blocks at your disposal. This is a by-product of making the actual game and not the actual focus of development. Multiplayer support for N players (Our humble servers cope fairly well with 10, at least.) Awesome dynamic lighting (quite similar to Minecraft) (This is done with no shaders or such.) Almost infinite world (limited to +-31000 blocks in all directions at the moment) (Minecraft Alpha has a height restriction of 128 blocks) Infinite map generator (Does quite good maps already.) Runs natively on Windows and Linux (C++ and Irrlicht. No Java.)
