Minecraft: Pi Edition is a stripped-down version of Minecraft created by Mojang specifically to teach programming on the Raspberry Pi by including an API for the Python programming language. It is a popular tool though it was discontinued by Mojang in 2015.


[edit | edit source]

Minecraft: Pi Edition was licenced to the Raspberry Pi Foundation exclusively for the Raspberry Pi and cannot be acquired (legitimately) elsewhere. It is preinstalled on Raspberry Pi OS (and the older Raspbian) images.

Unofficial projects
