Villagers Take Over Minecraft


If you fire up Minecraft today, you might notice something a little different. Mojang has already issued an apology:

The long-nosed villagers introduced in Minecraft beta 1.9 have become sentient. They have taken over our skin servers and content delivery networks (CDN), so unfortunately you will not be able to change your skins until we fix the problem. We are desperately trying our best to pull the plugs, but we should prepare ourselves to serve under our new villager overlords. Singularity may be upon us.

// The Minecraft Team

In addition to villager skins there are new sounds and the villagers singing the Game of Thrones Theme on the title screen. Let’s hope the villager revolt can be controlled by the end of today, April 1, which is coincidentally April Fools Day.
