Minecraft has become a cultural sensation over the years, and now reaches over 90 million gamers every month. Mojang has released a number of updates which have added tremendous depth to the experience. However, let’s say that you’re one for nostalgia, and don’t like any of the new content. Luckily, there’s a solution to that problem and it can be accessed through a browser.
Today, the team released Minecraft Classic for browsers. You just have to go to classic.minecraft.net to access the game. The developer issued the following hilarious statement about the version.
You know what’s better than new content? Good ol’ nostalgia! To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Minecraft, we’re releasing MINECRAFT CLASSIC to your browser. Play the original creative mode, complete with 32 blocks and all the beloved bugs!

In just ten days, our little crafting game turns ten years old! That means Minecraft still isn’t old enough to drive or run for president yet, but it is old enough for us to get all nostalgic… You can run Minecraft Classic in your browser and you’ll soon see why. With just 32 blocks to build with, all the original bugs, and an interface only a mother could love, Minecraft 2009 is even more glorious than we remembered! You’re in for a real treat, particularly if you’re really into dyed wool.
We’ve been playing Minecraft Classic today and it’s sort of shocking to see the night-and-day difference. The game has really come a long way over the years.
