Demo of this beautiful game is finally available for Linux.
Minecraft is a sandbox construction game, inspired by Infiniminer, and created by Markus Persson, the manager of Mojang Specifications. The game involves players creating and destroying various types of blocks in a three dimensional environment. The player takes an avatar that can destroy or create blocks, forming fantastic structures, creations and artwork across the various multiplayer servers in multiple game modes.
Alpha's singleplayer and multiplayer, when purchased, can be played in the user's web browser, or using the downloadable client. Minecraft Classic is available to play for free, as well as a test version of survival mode.
