Minecraft Introduces Snowmen

Most video game developers probably associate the word "leak" with a cold chill of fear that occasionally runs up their spine. Not Markus Persson on the Mojang team though. The Minecraft dev instead sees a leak as a great opportunity to give paying beta participants an early look at what's coming. As an admitted block-mining addict, I can honestly say that I'm perfectly okay with this.

Mojang's Jen Bergensten took to Twitter yesterday with a download link for the JAR of version 1.9 of Minecraft, just a week after the official release of 1.8, the first half of the planned Adventure Update.

Installing the JAR file can seem a little complicated if you've never done it before, though it's actually pretty simple, amounting to little more than replacing one file with another. You can find PC installation instructions right here.

Notch revealed yesterday on Twitter that version 1.9 will add the new Snow Golem, a companion creature that distracts enemies by throwing zero-damage snowballs at them. The update also adds NPCs, Nether tweaks and, rather awesomely, the Mooshroom.
