    Considereing that the game is open source gives it a fair bit more possibilities to expand in the future then minecraft had. That would however only happen if anyone cared enough for the game to begin with ;)

    Well, C, as in the language, is easier to modify, and you can do alot of stuff more that Java couldn't do.

    Taken from the homepage:

    Minetest is an infinite-world block sandbox game and a game engine, inspired by InfiniMiner, Minecraft and the like. It has been in development and use since October 2010.

    >inspired by InfiniMiner, Minecraft

    Starting around the same time or not, they're basing their ideas on Minecraft, and are therefore copying it. Looking at the screenshots on the same page, it does look like it's just a Minecraft texture pack. I'd have mistaken it for Minecraft very easily. I think it goes beyond saying they're the same style of game.

    I'm not saying it's bad, since I haven't played it (And don't plan to) but I am saying it's a Minecraft clone.

    Well, the style of the game may not be different but if it is in a different language it is clearly NOT a rip-off, as C and Java work pretty differently and it wouldn't be very easy to move it over to a different language.

    Well if it started development around the same time as Minecraft i don't see how it's a rip-off.

    I tried it out, and I'd say that it's kind of like minecraft, but it's actually pretty different. It has nyancats, for one thing.

    But seriously, I have played it and that was way way back about the time it really started rolling. I played it yesterday. Intensely grown. The only thing is, people compare MineTest to Minecraft now which is a big mistake. Compare them on the times like MC after 3 years from the beginning and MT after 3 years from the beginning... Ok, maybe a ripoff, but then again, in the same way Minecraft is a ripoff of Infiniminer...
