So far I've found just two: RealTest and Sol Aureus.

Please let me know if there are others that I've missed.

The dead (and lately resurrected?) Ufo Race subgame. It's not even mining-related.

It seems that the developer started another project named Voxus, dead as well.

RPG Test
Pixture
Capture the Flag (massively stripped default, and most mods removed)

I'd argue that being based on Minetest Game wouldn't be a bad thing if default wasn't so bloated, providing that the sub game is different enough. Ie: doesn't feel like MTG. Hypothetically reusing mods from MTG, or at least complying to their API, makes inter-subgame support considerably easier. But too many MTG based games are just lazy MTG+mods, simply due to default being a mess.

I believe Pixture is inspired by Voxus. Kenny is a very famous game designer, and he stopped using Minetest as he wasn't happy with how little the engine allowed him customise graphics (ie: there was no skybox support at that time, still no sub-game shader support).

First things first: The official name is “Minetest Game”, not “minetest_game”.

Here's a list of subgames: http://wiki.minetest.net/List_of_Subgames#The_list

Sort by type. Everything which is not “Improvement” should be different enough from Minetest Game. If it still is too similar to Minetest Game, please fix this by editing the wiki.

Subgames I personally like:
- Lord of the Test
- Pixture
- Minetest Hades
- The Legend of Minetest: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=14051
- rpgtest
- MineClone 2 (for obvious reasons)

Other noteworthy subgames:
- Farlands: viewtopic.php?f=50&t=16921
- Eden2: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=7027
- Aftermath: viewtopic.php?f=50&t=13700
- BFD: viewtopic.php?id=9036
- Minetest_MarSurvival: viewtopic.php?f=50&t=14869
- grail_test:Avalonia: viewtopic.php?f=50&t=10941
- Outback: https://github.com/vlapsley/outback
- SkyTest
- Minetest Saturn
- Moontest

Note that technically, a lot of subgames are “based” (i.e. forked) from Minetest Game, but have been changed beyond recognition. Even MineClone 2 is originally a Minetest Game fork but it is completely different, even on a technical level.

I've been reading your replies and I've tried some of the mentioned subgames, sorry for my late reply - eventually I'll make a post with my opinions about them. Thanks for your help!
