Minetest is the FLOSS clone of Minecraft. Quite basic by default so you will need mods, thankfully Debian makes this quite easy. I install Minetest from Backports and install all the mods in Debian with 'apt install minetest-mod*'.

I needed to compile an up-to-date version of megatools to get around an API quirk. I followed the instructions in https://github.com/megous/megatools. It worked and installed to my .local folder, but there was a few complaints about possible conflicts with .so files.
