    It looks really cool. But I can't figure out how to run it on linux. I get a compilation error with cython on line 17 of chunkhandler.pyx:17:3: Unrecognized character. Not sure why.

    Anyway, really cool effort and a very ambition project :)

    You need to use latest development branch of Cython. I don't know it's still like this though.. it was 3 years ago :)
    And it was pain in the ass on windows to setup a development environment so it will be like that on linux too I think...
    Also, you need to pass -std=c99(I think something like that) compilation option to gcc to compile .c .h files...

    About that error:
    Use latest version of cython. In linux it usually have old stable version but I used latest development branch.

    About another compile errors:
    It uses function arguments like this
    void func(int a[16], int b[16])
    if you fix those into something like this:
    void func(int *a, int *b)

    it will compile on linux also.... there are about 50 lines of code to fix so I just left it alone.... since I don't use linux.

    Maybe there is another way like some compile option to compile those kind of code too. Since it is in C99 standard.....

    Hey I was thinking of doing this. Really well done, probably better than I ever would have made it.

  • Mike 2011-07-09 16:54

    Also judging by 'Cygame' this is written partly in C?

  • Jack 2011-07-17 03:53

    I'm not very good with pygame yet... But I'm great with python :)

    Notch challenges you to a game of... QUAKE 3!

  • Louis 2011-08-27 22:47

    Excellent!!! Also, @ Mike, i think the main engine (the thing that runs the main code such as the game engine and terrain generators) is written in C.

    why can i not use the link

  • Aragos 2011-09-28 03:27

    after you get this awesome game figured out....add multiplayer :)

    wow but why 7z WTF I CANT DECROPRES

    And Minecraft, Fredo, is a complete ripoff of Infiniminer and Dwarf Fortress.  And every first person shooter is a complete ripoff of Doom.  And Braid is a complete ripoff of Donkey Kong.

    ok dwarf fortress is eniterly diffrent than minecraft, and minecraft came out before infiniminer. Also, you can't say FPS games are a ripoff of any game in paticular, it would be as though you are saying a modern cell phone is a ripoff of two cans on a string. On braid you are 95% correct, it is a ripoff of donkey kong with a few pointless extras.

    O_O 2012-04-02 04:32

    Although now that i think on it a little more there are similarities between MC and DF but not enough to say MC ripped it off

    Devin Arendt 2012-04-05 14:29

    Minecraft was based off of the Infiniminer source and ported over to java.... Infiniminer is what inspired notch to even make minecraft... 

    RNK6 2012-07-03 02:50

    and python is open source!!!

  • bobby 2012-04-16 01:49

    are we going to need java or other windows

  • bobby 2012-04-16 01:52

    cause i cant install java

    How long does it take to learn how to do something like this? I recently bought Making games in python & pygame, is that a good start?

    진주 유 2014-04-05 13:26

    I've been programmer for 15 years. It took me to plan this on for 6 months and code for 6 weeks.

    This looks a lot like Manic Digger

    진주 유 2014-04-05 13:25

    Yeah texture was taken from Manic Digger... I don't know how to draw so..

  • nick panagakis 2014-02-10 05:11
