A game with hexagonal blocks on a cylindrical world inspired by Minecraft

Official website:



  • Hexagonal blocks
  • Cylindrical world
  • Infinite world (except around the cylinder)
  • Triangular pixels
  • And much more!


The game requires Java 8 (or later) to be installed. If it's not installed you can get it here.

Using the Hexacraft Launcher (easiest)

You can download the launcher here.

Version 0.8

In this version you can run the game in any of the following ways.

  • Run bin/hexacraft.bat (Windows)
  • Run bin/hexacraft (Mac/Linux)
  • Double click lib/com.martomate.hexacraft-0.8-launcher.jar (like in the previous version)

Version 0.7 and earlier

Up to version 0.7 the game was shipped as a couple of folders and a jar file. To get started, just run Hexacraft.jar (or Hexagon.jar in early versions) either by double-clicking it or using the terminal. In the terminal you would run java -jar Hexacraft.jar

Worlds are saved

The program works very similarly to Minecraft (at least when it comes to saving worlds).

You can create as many worlds as you like and they will be saved on your computer. To find the files go to the folder named ".hexacraft" in the %appdata% directory on Windows and in the home directory on Mac and Linux (just like for Minecraft).


The game was created in spring of 2015 by Martin Jakobsson (Martomate).

Almost three years later the game moved to GitHub and since then anyone has had the chance to contribute. More information about how to contribute is available here.


This project goes under the MIT Licence. In short it says that anyone may use this project for anything they want as long as the licence is not removed or changed.

Basically this should be an open source project, but if anyone uses it for some purpose it would be nice if they mentioned the original project or the authors of this project. There has, after all, been a lot of work put into this.
