Inspired might be pushing it a bit eh? MineClone2 as the name suggests really is a clone of early Minecraft, although this is free and open source powered by the Minetest game engine. A big new release is out now following the recent Minetest upgrade.
MineClone2 v0.83 "Safe and Sound" is full of new features and honestly it sounds really great. You will find new and updated music, new sound effects, biome coloured foliage and water, mobs can ride minecarts, hoppers can put items in minecarts, new and improved /clearmobs commands, Iron Golems now protect themselves and villagers, various performance improvements, improved translations, lots of bug fixes and the list goes on.
You can see their latest release video below:
Nice to see this great free and open source Minecraft alternative coming along so nicely.
You need Minetest to play it, and then you can download it via the in-game content downloader.
