While the SEGA Dreamcast was (and is) an amazing machine, it died young but kept an impressively strong following, us included.
We know that Mojang’s Minecraft is on all platforms, one was left out for some reason. Yep, the Dreamcast. Well worry no more Dreamcast owners DCEmulation forum member gameblabla has ported a Minecraft clone called Crafti to the SEGA console.
Tom Charnock of The Dreamcast Junkyard tried it out and can be seen below. In regards to how the game plays, he said
Controls take a little getting used to, but once sussed, Crafti is about as close to the real Minecraft as you’re likely to get on a Dreamcast. Movement is handled through the D-pad, looking on the analogue and the face buttons allow you to place or erase blocks in the world. You can also jump, and there’s an action button for opening doors and pressing switches.
After 10 minutes playing with Crafti I had already built myself a nice little house, complete with a fireplace and a bookshelf full of leather-bound books. The smell of rich mahogany also wafted through the structure.
Crafti was made for a high-end Texas Instruments calculator and is now up and running, minus sound and enemies, on the SEGA Dreamcast.
