Mojang has released a version of their smash hit world-building game Minecraft for the tiny, inexpensive Raspberry Pi computer. Minecraft: Pi Edition is based on Pocket Edition, the mobile version currently available on iOS and Android, and you can download it now for free.

"Break open the code."

In common with the $35 Raspberry Pi's stated goals of providing a low-cost way to get people into programming, Mojang hopes that players will use Pi Edition to "break open the code." There's support for multiple languages, and the idea is that "you'll be learning skills through Minecraft." The team has set up a dedicated Pi Edition website at pi.minecraft.net where you can download the game and find out how to get started.
