THE MINETEST.TV MISSION

If you or your kids are interested in Minecraft, we'd like to introduce you to a free alternative called Minetest.

What Is Minetest?

Minetest is a free, near-infinite-world block sandbox game and a game engine inspired by (and therefore similar to) Minecraft. What's that? Let's call it the modern-day Lego, shall we?

Minetest runs on Windows, Mac OS X, GNU/Linux, Android, and FreeBSD.

Download Minetest (it's free!)

How Can It Be Free?

Minetest has been developed under the Free/Libre and Open Source Software models and is released under the LGPL 2.1 or later license.

That basically means, great people who are passionate about programming (and gaming) have made this amazing software available for you to enjoy at no cost to you.

THE PIXEL SHADOW

Discovering Xanadu (Episode 24)

A mysterious teleportation gate hidden deep beneath BaldNerd's dome whisks BaldNerd and MangleFox70 away to the strange, unknown land of the Xanadu, where the locals are able to eat bananas and corn, bounce around in a massive soccer field and take a minecart ride through the depths of the underworld.

GET CREATIVE

Join the Minetest.TV Creative World Server.

This is a great place to start, or to express your creativity. Our Creative server puts all the tools you need right at your fingertips. If we have it, it's available for you to use without having to mine or craft: just look it up in the crafting guide and click on it to add it to your inventory. A fun place to let the creative juices flow, and learn your way around the wonderful world of Minetest.

From the Minetest menu, select "Client" and join the following:

TEST YOUR SURVIVAL SKILLS

Join the Minetest.TV Survival World Server.

Ready for the next challenge? Our Survival server has the tools you need to get started in Survival, but requires you to mine resources and craft the tools and items you require. Since we allow you to fly, exploration is fun and easy, but when it comes to constructing your builds, you're going to have to work for it.

From the Minetest menu, select "Client" and join the following:

XTREME PVP SURVIVAL

Join the Minetest.TV Xtreme PVP Survival World Server.

This server is not for the faint of heart, nor the new Minetest player. If you've already played Creative, and you've mastered Survival, now it's time to take it to the next level with Xtreme PVP Survival. On this server, it's kill or be killed, hide to survive, and unless you want to have to try to track down your bones, you'd better stay inside at night. If the other players don't get you, the dragons will.

From the Minetest menu, select "Client" and join the following:

Address: servers.minetest.tv
Port: 30002

Rules: Password required. No swearing. Try to survive.

LEGO® MEETS MINETEST

Join the Minetest.TV LEGO® Creative World Server.

We've always thought of Minetest (and other voxel-based games such as Minecraft) to be a type of "digital LEGO®" in the most positive sense, and we are all huge fans of LEGO®-brand building blocks. So why not create a Minetest world that merges the two into a Minetest world where the in-game textures have been replaced with LEGO®-like textures to give a fun and unique gaming experience.

From the Minetest menu, select "Client" and join the following:

Rules: Password required. No swearing. No dating.

Domes

Join the Minetest.TV Domes Survival World Server.

Taking survival gameplay to a new level, TPS-Domes is a unique take on survival gameplay. Each biome spawns its own "Dome" which you must discover and mine. Travel between domes via the horizontal bridges that connect you through the abyss, or risk falling to find domes below.

The World's Crappiest Minetest Server

Join the Minetest.TV Crappy Survival World Server.

Have you ever connected to a server and thought it was crappy? The team of jokers admins at Minetest.TV decided we have to have the ultimate of every kind of server... even the crappy ones. So TPS-Crappy was born: the crappiest Minetest server ever. Where trees grow wool and cows walk on their heads, where cats are as big as elephants and water is made of wood. This backward world is truly an experience in ironic survival gameplay from the crazy folks at The Pixel Shadow.
