NAME

minetest, minetestserver - Multiplayer infinite-world block sandbox

SYNOPSIS

minetest [--server SERVER OPTIONS | CLIENT OPTIONS] [COMMON OPTIONS] [WORLD PATH] minetestserver [SERVER OPTIONS] [COMMON OPTIONS] [WORLD PATH]

DESCRIPTION

Minetest is one of the first InfiniMiner/Minecraft(/whatever) inspired games (started October 2010), with a goal of taking the survival multiplayer gameplay to a slightly dif‐ ferent direction. The main design philosophy is to keep it technically simple, stable and portable. It will be kept lightweight enough to run on fairly old hardware.
