Minetest Game (abbreviated MTG) is a simple and peaceful sandbox game, with no real goals or built-in enemy mobs.
While it provides a basic gameplay experience out of the box, it is best played with mods.
Minetest Game is currently in maintenance-only mode, meaning it will not see new gameplay features or anything else that breaks compatibility (See #2710).
