Perfect! Thank you so Much! Ok so for anyone else to lay out my steps:

sudo apt-get install matchbox

I created a new theme for emulationstation for Minecraft:

I first created a new folder in the roms folder called minecraft.

home/pi/RetroPie/roms/minecraft/

and in the above minecraft folder I created a shell script called

minecraft.sh

the contents of this file are:

#!/bin/sh
xset -dpms  # disable DPMS (Energy Star) features.
xset s off  # disable screen saver
xset s noblank  # don't blank the video device
matchbox-window-manager &
/opt/minecraft-pi/minecraft-pi

it differs a bit from Basst’s cause I’m using the 3.0 Beta image.

Then I added a section to

/etc/emulationstation/es_systems.cfg

<system>
    <name>minecraft</name>
    <fullname>minecraft-pi</fullname>
    <path>~/RetroPie/roms/minecraft</path>
    <extension>.sh .SH</extension>
    <command>xinit /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/minecraft/minecraft.sh</command>
    <platform>minecraft</platform>
    <theme>minecraft</theme>
  </system>

and last but not least I added a theme folder named minecraft to

/etc/emulationstation/themes/simple

This is a link to my minecraft theme folder

Hopefully this was useful to someone!

as a side note: for the menus you’ll want to use a keyboard as the mouse gets a little wonky with the matchbox window.
