OpenCore Legacy Patcher logo

Apple stops providing support and a download for old hardware. However, it is possible to force an install. The project that is responsible for this magic has achieved something truly spectacular, making it trivially easy using this GUI software.

WARNING: This is an extremely stupid and dangerous process to attempt without reading, understanding, and preparing the whole process up front. See #.spiralofhope.com/83891/opencore-legacy-patcher.html#plan. It really is very easy and works 100% for "only fairly ancient" hardware, but "very ancient" hardware might not be fully supported (yet?).

A procedurally generated survival game with shitty graphics, which became popular because it was first-to-market and took advantage of nostalgia.

Unfortunately, Minecraft was never completed and the author fucked off with the money to make another game. Even with extraordinary success, the author didn't make good on promises and the game was never finished. (It would later be "finished" by having a recipe book concept and an "end".)

I loved this game, and even bought it twice to support the developer, but because it was Java it would bring a computer to its knees. Being sold out to Microsoft (for their upcoming virtual reality stuff I'd bet) was bafflingly insulting.

I would try it again years later, and it hasn't had basic improvements.
