Mojang has just finished their Minecraft: Pi Edition port and have made it available for free to anyone who owns a Raspberry Pi.

Minecraft: Pi Edition is a port of Minecraft: Pocket Edition, which comes with a revised feature set and support for multiple programming languages.

The game runs in Raspbian “wheezy” with Xwindows and is quite simple to start. All you will have to do is unpack that game, navigate to the mcpi folder and run the executable, which is “minecraft-pi”.

Users can simply start by building structures and go through the motions of the original Minecraft, but they can also start hacking the code and use the programming language to manipulate things in the game world. The game will actually help its users learn programming while playing.

Raspberry Pi relies on an ARM processor with a clock speed of 700 MHz, 512 MB of RAM, an SD card slot and a 5V Micro USB connector that supplies the power. It also features RCA and HDMI ports.
