Who are we?

We are a group of programmers, gamers, and computer enthusiasts who run a game server. We specifically cater to open-source games running on Linux. Several servers that were running on are now hosted here.

What is Minetest?

Minetest is an infinite-world sandbox game and game engine. It is inspired by InfiniMiner, Minecraft and the like. It has been development and use since October 2012. It is FOSS, released under the LGPL 2.1 or later, available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. It is developed by a (self-proclaimed) bunch of lunatics.

Minetest is designed to be simple, stable and portable. It is lightweight enough to run on fairly old hardware. It currently runs playably on a laptop with Intel 945GM graphics. Though, as for the CPU, dualcore is recommended.
