Minecraft has been available on OS X for a long time, but Mac gamers have so far had to use a Java launcher to start the sandbox game. Now, Minecraft's developer Mojang has created an early version of a native OS X launcher for the game that should make it easier for Mac players to get started.
A post on the Reddit Minecraft page has a link to the new Mac OS X launcher. Mojang stated:
Mojang is looking for players to give feedback on the native OS X Minecraft launcher. It adds that while this early version is a bit slow, it will "be much, much faster" when the final version of the launcher is released.
