This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
See, this is why game preservation is important.
This game is defunct.
Do note the game no longer works at all without modifications. This is most likely due to the game's servers being shut down. As a result, further official developments with the game are unlikely to happen.

Minecraft Earth is an AR spinoff of Minecraft, bringing the world of Minecraft to the real world! Unfortunately, it happened to come out just before the COVID-19 pandemic and that lasted throughout the game's service, eventually resulting in the game being shut down not even two years after release. Ouch.

But hey, at least we have a remnant of it in newer versions of Minecraft with the Glow Squid being a mob, voted for in a previous Minecon.


To do:
  • The game wasn't planned to shut down so quickly, so there's a lot more unused graphics and such. A full list of unused graphics can be found here.
  • Document differences from the 2019 Apple Worldwide Developers Conference gameplay reveal. Most of them can also be found on the wiki page above.

Removed Test Resource Pack

A resource pack named genoa_test is present with almost no contents, except pretty much the contents file, which at least allows the skeleton of the pack to be recovered.

    "content": [
            "path": ".gitignore"
            "path": "make_contents_file.py"
            "path": "manifest.json"

Unused Models
