Minetest is an open source game and game engine much like Minecraft and available for free. It has recently released a major new version.
It adds quite a like like new textures, new sounds, new graphical features, new modding options and the usual assortment of bug fixes.
I tested out the new version and I have to say it has really impressed me. The base game does feel a bit too bare though. I am not the only one who feels that way, as it seems Voxelands was forked from it when Minetest went down the route of being more of an engine than an actual game. Still, it's cool to see it progress and there are a few mods available to make it feel like more of a game.
You can see the full changelog here.
