Cave Game


A cave game cave.


An example of what could be made in pre-classic.

The Cave Game version of Minecraft (also referred to as Pre-Classic) was the first version of Minecraft created by Markus Persson, before it was officially renamed. Cave game was based on an even earlier game Notch had produced, called RubyDung. Cave game consisted of different-textured Cobblestone and Grass, but no other block types. The prototype was made to visualize how caves could be generated, hence the name Cave Game.


  • There were no game mode options. A player was placed in a flat world and was free to explore.
  • Pre-classic can be played by setting the Minecraft Launcher to allow alpha versions, then editing a profile to use the very first version available.
