Minecraft 2.0 was indeed an april fools joke. Thanks to the youtubers who made it happen, and all of you for being an excellent audience. <3

Red = super hostile. Blue = mindcrack/hermitcraft. Purple = red + blue.

@Dinnerbone Wow! This was an epic April fools joke! But my question is, how long did this take you to make? Looks like at least a month or 2
Nathan Adams ‏@Dinnerbone :
@Vulkane20 Not long at all. In the range of hours-days.

I actually fell for it maybe 30 seconds. Me and a friend had been discussing what exactly Mojang was using all their employees for, because they have a lot more people than is necessary for minecraft + scrolls + 0x10c. So in my mind a Minecraft 2.0 would be an explanation. Of course I soon realized that this is about as far away from what Mojang is as you could possibly come...

about 4 seconds, the alarm bell for me was the jump from 1.5 to 2, very large jump. but it was all very convincing.

Seeing a pink wither on the tile screen for the video was the giveaway for me. Pink spiders might work for Bazz, but pink withers .... no way.

The UFOs and rainbows on the picture on the blog entry didn't help either, since that was where I saw all the details.
