  • Compiling from source works on a Raspi 4 and the game is pretty playable. However the above example could be adapted (for example, to allow for sound). The Readme over at github.com/minetest/minetest does a great job listing all the options (and will always be up to date). – Yiannis Dermitzakis Apr 20 at 17:52
