You Can Now Play Minecraft on Your Raspberry Pi For Absolutely Free

By Sam Gibbs on at

Yes, the Pi-machine keeps on getting better and better. Not only is there a stable release of XBMC waiting for you, your Raspberry Pi can also now play Minecraft, and for absolutely nothing too.

Minecraft: Pi Edition is a separate release specifically for the Pi, and you can download it right here. Is there anything the humble Pi can't do? I'd recommend getting yourself one of the beefed up original boards if you're after a dedicated minecrafting machine, thanks to the doubled RAM.

The instructions for getting it up and running look pretty simple, if you're at all familiar with Linux and your Pi. So jump on over to the Pi Edition blog and get Pi-crafting right now. [Minecraft: Pi Edition, Mojang]
