Classic Minecraft Now Officially Playable in Your Web Browser

Microsoft and Mojang are ramping up to celebrate the tenth anniversary for Minecraft, and to further celebrate the sandbox game’s birthday – they’ve officially made it playable in your web browser.

The browser version of the game is based on Minecraft Classic, the no-frills version of the sandbox game that largely feels like it does roughly ten years ago – when the game first initially released in 2009.

It’s worth pointing out this is really based on the original version of the game, “with just 32 blocks to build with, all the original bugs, and an (inter)face only a mother could love, Minecraft 2009 is even more glorious than we remembered.”

In related news, Microsoft and Mojang have excluded the game’s original creator, Markus ‘Notch’ Persson, from the 10th anniversary event – due to his opinions. You can read more about that here.

Do your civic duty and build many, many penis statues in Minecraft like you did all those years ago.
