Mine to the bottom and find out what's there, should run best in google chrome, sorry if you get low fps. I apologise for the audio design.

I get this error in Firefox TypeError: z.createGainNode is not a function

Great feeling when I finally got the Iron pickaxe after missing so many blocks of ruby. Good ending too :).

Simple art, but nice to look at.

The game is a little tedious, but fun at the same time. I liked the ending. The minimalist graphics are pretty charming too. Very cool. :)

I kept reading the text as "Rugby Pickaxe" for some reason. Nice game :). Was a bit grindy - could have used some variety.

WARNNG: this may sound harsh, note that i gave a good rating, BUT
was it really necessary to make yet another minecraft remake?
It seams that people think that reusing an idea that has already been successful guaranties success...
Anyhow, although this was a minecraft remake, i still loved the spike of humour at the end, good job anyways

For some reason I thought just getting that augy axe would give me life purpose... it didn't... :(

(But yes I made it to the end)

Minimalist minecraft clone. Cool animation.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
