Although Minecraft is getting closer to launch, Notch isn't resting on his laurels. He had a surprise for his twitter followers, revealing a new creature he's been working on. Yep, it's a dragon. It's an albino dragon right now, though. While Minecraft always reminds me of playing with Lego as a kid (and as an adult, I must admit), this latest creation really does look like it belongs perched on a castle tower, terrorizing little yellow men. I still think it's less terrifying than the squid.
I haven't played since 1.7, but I'm sorely tempted to play again and check out the early 1.9 build. I might even rejoin my old creative server and finish my "City of Tomorrow". I bet a dragon would love to destroy that. Hopefully we'll see more dragons at MineCon, this November. Of course the important question we all want to know is -- will we get to ride the dragons? At this point, Notch is keeping schtum.
