Minicraft is a 2D top-down action game made by Markus "Notch" Persson, for the 2011 48-hour game programming contest Ludum Dare 22. The game was released on December 19, 2011, and never got any official updates.

After its discontinuation, it became open source, and its popularity increased as many players created their own versions of Minicraft. Notch was also developing a sequel called Minitale, but it was never released and little is known about it.

Gameplay[]

The gameplay is in some ways similar to Minecraft. The player must gather materials to craft tools to mine ore, chop trees, farm wheat, dig pits, and kill zombies and slimes. In order to win they must defeat the boss, the air wizard. Players spawn in a series of islands, with a border at the edges of the map. Minicraft has 5 biomes, exclusive to the Overworld, which are forest, meadow, desert, mountain, and ocean.
