When you first launched Minetest, didn’t you think it was just Minecraft? Actually not. Although their interface, style, and gameplay are almost the same, Minetest is essentially a free, open-source and cross-platform voxel game engine (written in C++ and Lua, using the Irrlicht Engine). It was created by Perttu Ahola and first released in 2010, and is now developed by a team of volunteers, with significant contributions from the community.

When it comes to voxel games, the representative work is of course the well-known sandbox game Minecraft, in which the entire game world was created using voxels.
