Authentic, built with passion, and shows the power of dedicated developers.
If I want to recommend a voxel survival-sandbox game to somebody and some of minecraft's mechanics and recent feature updates aren't quite their style, I often turn to this, and It's no puzzle as to why. Both Mesecraft and Minetest feel like they are crafted with love, the work put into them is very clean and optimized, and everything just complements each other.
On top of that, the developers behind this and minetest are seriously talented. The terrain generation system is nothing short of impressive, all of the various postfx effects you can enable work great with only a moderate performance impact at most, and rendering is so lightning quick that i don't even notice it most of the time - and all this has been my experience on a rather cheap HP 15 Notebook laptop from 2015!
There is nothing i can criticize in Minetest and Mesecraft. The most I have ever found is some bugs to submit in a bug report, and I will gladly take the time to contribute in any way i can for this lovingly, masterfully made software. I wish the best life to these developers, they've earned it.
p.s: To be brutally honest, i'd remove "mesecraft is the best" in the description. It speaks that for itself in ways beyond words, let it do so ^_^
