Minecraft Hits Raspberry Pi for Free
Finally, you might say.
Though it was initially aimed at teaching school children the ins and outs of programing, Raspberry Pi has captured the hearts of developers around the world and is extremely popular. This week, the Raspberry Pi Foundation announced that popular sandbox game Minecraft has finally arrived on the platform.
In a post titled 'Minecraft - It's here!' Raspberry Pi spokeswoman Liz Upton announced that Mojang has finished the Minecraft: Pi Edition port, and it’s already available for download. What's more, it's completely free. Upton added that those that downloaded the beta in December will want to update to the current version, which contains bug fixes.
"Thanks to all at Mojang for all the work you’ve done on this, and greetings to those of you who are coming to the Raspberry Pi platform to play this new edition," Upton wrote. "We're really happy to be able to welcome all you Minecrafters to the Pi family!"
Minecraft for Raspberry Pi was first announced in November at MinCon in Disneyland, Paris. You can snag Minecraft: Pi Edition over at http://pi.minecraft.net/.
