Minecraft: Pi Edition out now for free

Mojang promises more features are in the works

Minecraft: Pi Edition is out now and available to download for free.


The custom version of Mojang's hugely successful world builder is based on Minecraft Pocket Edition, but has been modified to be compatible with the low-cost micro-computer Raspberry Pi.

The game features a "revised feature set" and "support for several programming languages", allowing users to code directly into the game.

Posting on its official blog, Mojang promised it "will be adding new features in due course".

The studio has encouraged players to pick away at and explore the game's code.

"You can start by building structures in the traditional Minecraft way, but once you've got to grips with the in-game features, there's opportunity to break open the code and use programming language to manipulate things in the game world. You'll be learning new skills through Minecraft."

Minecraft has sold over 20 million copies across all platforms.
