    Oh boy, Notch adds a new mob to vanilla Minecraft! And... they're based off of... of all things... Slenderman. If you don't know what Slenderman is, don't search it. Please. It scared me for months.

    Source and images here.

    They've been named Endermen, but Notch is considering a name change. Information here.

    Endermen/Farlanders have been confirmed as passive until you focus (place your recticle) on them. At this point, they start to run very quickly towards you, and teleport if you get far enough. (Thanks to Ikki for the information!)

    Slenderman used to be scary, but people have effectively ruined it at this point in time.

    Nothing is even known about what that mob can do yet. :/

    I've only seen the first few "episodes". So it's still scary to me. [​IMG]

    Ahaha, I remember Slenderman.

    This looks like a pretty freaky mob. I can't wait until the 1.8 update!

    I remember reading this horribly scary creepypasta on Slenderman... It doesn't help that a dead tree outside my window makes shadows into my room at night, either.

    FUUU- I won't be able to sleep tonight.

    If you really want to be freaked out, search Marble Hornets. They do a series on Slenderman, and it is terrifying.

    Enderman.

    Is Slenderman without the SL.

    Slenderman - SL = Enderman.

    Which is what confirms the fact that Notch based the mob off of him. [​IMG]

    Yeah, when I saw it was called Enderman and the word Slenderman came up, it's not hard to make a connection [​IMG].

    I also noticed that it can pick up blocks. So technically...

    Notch might have added a griefing mob to vanilla Minecraft.

    Keep watch!

    You mean Creepers aren't ALREADY a griefing mob in Vanilla Minecraft? The scare the shit out of me everytime they come near. THe only way to be safe is to build an obsidian castle!

    It's been so damn long I sure hope Notch adds several new mobs, and some bosses. He hasn't added a real new mob in....ever.

    Wolves were added in 1.4. But I get what you mean...Hostile mobs...

    He said he's probably gonna add other mobs, and possibly bosses in the strongholds that are randomly generated in the map. I hope he adds some more mobs besides this, but I hope he doesn't add too many. I don't want Minecraft to turn into Terraria.

    Awesome! Good looking and might actually scare, if it surprises you [​IMG]

    I hope more mobs get eventually added.

    I found this HI-larious!!! As I find, horror like this funny, not so much scary.

    But I have found minecraft interesting though.

    Well, with Creepers it's a matter of keeping a distance between you and the mob. If they'll indeed take the blocks, they'll probably do it regardless of where you are.

    I'm thinking they maybe do that to get to you. Like, dig their way to you, so they can hurt you.


    I wonder what sound effects it'll have to make it creepy. For example, I'd find the sounds the portals or the Ghasts make pretty creepy if they were used with the right atmosphere.

    The Adventure update is Notch trying to do as much as he can to be like Terraria. So, expect it. lol.
    Terraria is fantastic in every single way except building, so minecraft becoming a 3D Terraria would be pretty spectacular. It'd be the best of both worlds.
