Everything you need to know about Paper Minecraft

Paper Minecraft is a 2D version of Minecraft created by griffpatch. This project was made using the coding tool Scratch. You can find many tutorials on griffpatch's YouTube channel, including some behind-the-scenes looks at Paper Minecraft. It is free to play in your browser, meaning you don't need to purchase Minecraft to play it.

The transition to 2D means that Paper Minecraft plays very differently than the original Minecraft. It plays more like a platformer due to this change. Additionally, many blocks behave differently—you can pass through leaves and trees, for instance. Like regular Minecraft, you can change your world's settings before creation.
