Installing Minecraft on Hololens

I promised my niece 6 months ago that I'd show her Minecraft on my developer edition Hololens. I haven't figured out how to get it installed yet. Any ideas other than it's not in the store when using the Hololens device?

    Its not released yet. Only way to load it is via the store (once officially released) or you make your version :)

    I spent some time looking into source code and Minecraft mods, but don't know why the Minecraft for Windows 10 (supposed to be UWP) isn't in the Microsoft store. It should work on Hololens since it's UWP.

    I think we will have to wait for quite a bit more time. According to an article on PC world, "Minecraft is still very much a part of the Microsoft HoloLens journey," a Microsoft representative said. "At E3 2015, we showed some of what we are working on with Minecraft on HoloLens, but the game itself will be available on HoloLens closer to when the device is available to consumers."

    Waiting.. not sure why Microsoft can't do a alpha/beta release so we can have some fun demo'ing it. Ever since they bought Minecraft and and kicked it off Oculus, it's been the example use case of why Microsoft shouldn't own cool software. They are like the General Motors of software, big, slow and customer experience is something they think is only for release "sold" software. sigh.
