Minecraft for the Raspberry Pi is Here

If you own a Raspberry Pi you can now play a trimmed-down version of everyone’s favorite mining game.  Mojang have created a version of their popular game with the hacking and HCI communities in mind.  This version features an API that allows access to internal functions which could be used with the RPi’s GPIO header.  A whole world of fun is initiated with this feature, creeper triggered explosives in the real world anyone?  You can download the game here and check out the Mojang blog about the project.  There’s also a page dedicated to the project on the Minecraft Wiki.  Happy hacking!
