Embrace the Past with Minecraft Classic
Hated every update we’ve ever released? Then it’s your lucky day!
In just ten days, our little crafting game turns ten years old! That means Minecraft still isn’t old enough to drive or run for president yet, but it is old enough for us to get all nostalgic for the good ol’ days of the game. Dangerously over-nostalgic? No, lovingly nostalgic, by releasing Minecraft Classic!
You can run Minecraft Classic in your browser and you’ll soon see why. With just 32 blocks to build with, all the original bugs, and an (inter)face only a mother could love, Minecraft 2009 is even more glorious than we remembered! You’re in for a real treat, particularly if you’re really into dyed wool (and who isn’t it?) Click here to go back to a simpler time.
But! This isn’t the only way we’re celebrating ten years of Minecraft! Click here to learn more about our #MinecraftMemories, and how you can share yours too.
Plus! Want to win a trip to Seattle for you and up to three guests to attend Minecraft: The Exhibition at MoPOP, the Museum of Popular Culture? Really?

Also! You can keep up to date with all our ten year anniversary plans by visiting, admiring and bookmarking this page. Tune in on May 17th for more! I was going to spell that out in blocks in Minecraft Classic to end this post, but I was worried that might crash it…
