New Minecraft Mob Revealed (Image)
Markus “Notch” Persson, creator of Minecraft, released a teaser image of a new mob he’s working on, pictured above.
Due to the lighting, it’s difficult to discern details from this dark image; however, using highly sophisticated forensic analysis techniques available only to experts and requiring a team of specialized scientists working throughout the night, we’ve lifted the veil and brought some clarity to the picture:
Thanks to the magic of science, we can see six of these dark, gangly-limbed creeps. Two light-colored eyes help you identify them in the dark, but most alarming is the fact that two of these mobs are clearly holding blocks. Will they be able to disassemble your house? Hurl blocks at you? Or will they be helper monkeys, carrying blocks for you like good little slaves?
Couple these creepy — and unquestioningly deadly — mobs with Minecraft’s upcoming roguelike XP system, and you may find yourself searching for the single player commands to summon a pacifier and assume the fetal position.
