Minecraft Coming To Raspberry Pi In Hackable Edition

From The Register:

Minecraft will soon be available for the Raspberry Pi, and in true Pi fashion will be hackable.

The Pi guys have blogged that they “sent a bunch of boards out to Notch and the guys at Mojang in Stockholm a little while back, and they’ve produced a port of Minecraft: Pocket Edition”.

The port, dubbed Minecraft: Pi Edition, offers “a revised feature set and support for several programming languages, so you can code direct into Minecraft before you start playing.”

Mojang's Owen has posted on the release and says the Pi edition will allow users to “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.”

“It’s like hacking your way into Minecraft and modifying the game world with code, a bit like being Notch, Jeb, or Nathan, but arguably more fun and less stressful,” the post says, also offering “the cheapest LAN party of all time” as another P-powered possibility.

All concerned promise the Pi version will be available for download very soon now, but don't offer a date. The Pi version of the game will be free.

Damn, that's sweet. That really would get kids interested in learning to program.
As well as some adults

Don't wreck it, if I figure out I'm doing something productive I'll stop.
