How To Setup Minecraft On The Raspberry Pi via raspberrypi-spy.co.uk:
Until recently I had never played Minecraft but it’s popularity meant it was something I felt I had to try. I installed the free pocket edition on my Nexus 7 to try it out and as a result decided to give it a go on the Pi.
Using the Pi to run Minecraft opens up the possibility to interact with the 3D world using Python. This is something that particularly interested me. You can build structures using the normal interface but on the Pi you’ve got the chance to control that world using scripts to create and edit blocks.
The Pi Edition is similar to earlier versions of the Pocket Edition and only offers “Creative” mode. Therefore it’s not as advanced or fancy as the versions you may be used to playing on other platforms.
