How a small team of developers revived a dead version of Minecraft

Minecraft Pi edition is a bad version of Minecraft... At least it used to be. What changed?

Alt Text

A few months ago Minecraft pi edition was regarded as the worst version in existence. It’s only redeeming quality, it’s modding api.
However through the hard work and dedication of a few developers, it’s grown to be something much more.

The beginning.

Minecraft pi edition was released in 2013 as a stripped down version of the pocket edition (version for phones) and even then it was a bad version due to its characteristic lack of survival mode.

A few people tried to mod it, to little success. However a in 2020 a new project started, called mcpil which allowed Minecraft pi to really take off!
