SOFTWARE m4kc

minecraft 4k: decompiled, translated to C using SDL for graphics and input, and improved upon.

for those who don't know, minecraft 4k was a stripped down version of minecraft submitted by Notch to the java 4k game programming contest, where each submission had to be under 4 kilobytes in size. its wiki page can be found here. being so small, the game proved somewhat easy to de-compile and edit. multiple people have given this a go, including me. this project is an attempt to translate the game into C in order to increase its performance, and to provide a platform upon which to add new features.

installation requirements:

if you're on windows, mk4c.exe and SDL2.dll must be in the same folder for this program to run, and it cannot be run from the zip file.

if you're on linux, you need to make sure you have SDL2 installed on your system.

this program uses a non-gpu-accellerated 3d raycaster to render things. you may experience significant performance issues on lower end hardware.
