"Mine Blocks 1.31 Changelog!"

The wait is over!

I've been really nervous about this moment!!
Mine Blocks 1.31 was the most mysterious update ever. For 2 years I've kept it a secret, so I'm super excited to finally share it with the world!

Check out the update video and full changelog below:

It's better to watch this on YouTube!

Play the latest version!

Please backup your worlds before playing!

Scavenger Hunt!
The main feature of this update is a mini-game called "Scavenger Hunt"!
In this mini-game, you spawn in a new world and have 8 minutes to find 10 items!

You can play solo, or with up to 6 people (or 12 with Mine Blocks Plus).

That's right - it's a multiplayer mini-game! This was the quickest way to add a form of "multiplayer" to Mine Blocks. So grab some of your friends, start a voice call together, and create a Scavenger party! :D


Mine Blocks Plus!
I've started a Mine Blocks Patreon so you can support the game directly!

As a patron, you get Mine Blocks Plus, which unlocks some Scavenger perks:

  1. Double your party size to 12 players.
  2. Skip the wait time and ads between games.
  3. And most importantly: get the dirt ball, which you can throw at your friends!

You can also directly buy Mine Blocks Plus as a gift (1 month, or 1 year) if you don't want to use Patreon, or if you want to surprise a friend!


The Composter!
There are a few smaller additions that should help you speed through!

For example, to help you quickly grow crops, the composter was added!
The composter allows you to convert plants into bone meal. You can then use the bone meal to quickly grow stuff!

Other changes include the ability to break a crafting table faster with an axe and the ability to swap inventory items quickly by pressing number keys.


See below for all additions, bug fixes, and tweaks!
