The OG Minecraft from 2009 is now available right in your web browser

My dirt house will be glorious.

Sorry, Kevin, but I’ll be a bit slow today – I’ll be busy building a dirt mansion. Minecraft Classic is now available through your browser.

Mojang, the developer of the hit title Minecraft, has released the original game on browsers and it is completely free to play. Now, this is going to be a far cry from the Minecraft of today, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t fun to get out there and build a nice dirt shack to call home.

In the browser version, you get a paltry 32 blocks to work with and as Mojang puts it, “all the original bugs, and an (inter)face only a mother could love.” I remember playing the game back in 2009/2010, and playing around with the browser version this morning definitely brought back some fond memories.

Minecraft turns 10 years old

With Minecraft celebrating its 10 year anniversary on May 17, this comes just in time for that good nostalgia feeling.

OG Minecraft is not the only thing to look out for though, it looks like Minecraft is heading to the AR realm soon, with a new teaser trailer that was released this week showing an AR Minecraft game on mobile. No further information has been revealed about that title, but more information is coming on May 17.

What do you think? Plan on ignoring work for a bit to check out some glorious dyed wool in Minecraft Classic? Let us know down below in the comments or carry the discussion over to our Twitter or Facebook.
