2009 Throwback: Minecraft Classic Is Now Playable in Browser
Minecraft is now easier to play than ever as Mojang announced Tuesday that a classic, in-browser version of the game is now available.
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!

According to the announcement, the release of Minecraft Classic is designed to commemorate the game’s 10-year anniversary, which is on April 17.
Needless to say, the charming throwback lacks the current game’s polish and options.
“You can run Minecraft Classic in your browser and you’ll soon see why,” states Mojang’s Tom Stone in the announcement. “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! You’re in for a real treat, particularly if you’re really into dyed wool (and who [isn’t]?).”
