0.28 was a version of Classic released on October 27, 2009.[1]

Note that the screenshot shows a texture pack enabled. This is the only known screenshot of 0.28 currently.


  • White Sheep Revision 1.png Sheep
    • Drop 1-3 wool when hit
    • Drop 0-2 mushrooms when killed
    • Reward the player with 10 points when killed
    • Technically unused as the survival variant of 0.28 went unreleased (albeit most likely compiled at one point)
  • Obsidian JE1 BE1.png Obsidian
    • Very durable.
    • Drops 1 cobblestone block when mined.


  • Dark and Light Gray cloth is now darker.
  • Added the ability to change gamemodes via an internal value, allowing for creative mode versions to be created again.
  • Altered the level saving/loading code.
  • Added Ores, Stone Slabs, Iron and Gold Blocks, Bricks, Bookshelves, Moss Stone, and TNT to the creative inventory
  • Re-added menu and death screen shading
  • When the player stands near/inside another player, it pushes the player away slightly.
    • It's possible to walk through a player, but it feels slightly "solid".
  • Higher FPS.
  • Left click removes block
  • Right click adds block
Survival Mode
  • Only sheep will spawn
    • Other mobs can still exist and still function as normal
  • TNT disappears upon detonation
  • Blocks do not drop items (although Sheep still do)


  • Fixed a bug where the Pick Block feature did not work.
  • Fixed exploit where someone logging in with an illegal name would cause players to disconnect.
  • The side of the water texture no longer has a pink bar on top


Different ideas were considered during the development of this version. Originally, 0.28 was meant to be a part of Survival Test.
