They are shadow people, obviously later on you can force them into slave labor into your obsidian and diamonds mines, and to build 300 foot tall likenesses of you that breathe fire. They can also be used to carry your castle across the barren charred surface of your world.
Ok, what do we know? They can collect blocks or pickup block items and hold them. They can collect grass blocks. They are in a desert-flavored Giant Mushroom Biome. What can we logically deduce(Read: guess)? They spawn at night. They burn with sunlight. They can break your walls(Block collection). They are creepy as fuck.
This is my guess, he added Mushroom trees, and added the Slender Man or a "Shadow Walker", they can pick up blocks, the more they collect the bigger they get. They can place bolcks to try to suffocate you.
Could they have moved the sand under the water, thus the "floating" source block next to the mushroom? Or perhaps map generation is putting water springs on mushrooms right now? Oh wow... just thought of them moving blocks that are blocking liquids. Would amuse me to see one die from lava this way.
It would be awesome if they were some sort of constructive mob that tried to restore everything to how it was originally generated. Imagine it, you blow a hole in a mountain then you wait overnight and they've fixed it. Hmm but then you'd have to fight them off when they try to break your creations, they'd be like anti-creepers but still counter-productive.
Actually I kinda like Benjamin's suggestion of 'reconstructor' mobs. maybe a new recipe to create something to attract/detract them from an area too... hmm.... that idea is free, or maybe u can give me a free license :)
I think they should be called stalkers and avoid eye contact. They should act strange when you are looking at them and kind of wander around until you look away then they make a b-line straight for your back
Are they gonna be hostile, or inhabit the Villages and be friendly. They seem cool. What if you had it so if you give them resources to build with, later on they'd be like "Thanks for the help" and give you a couple iron or something. Also, are the Camoflauge Creepers gonna be added in? They're badass.
I love the idea of a mob that spawns on normal difficulty and just wanders around replacing non-user edited blocks back to what the seed says they should be. On nightmare difficulty they should restore all poorly lit blocks to the seed value one by one. When you attack them they should spray darkness at you, the opposite of light, darkness steals your vision forcing you to turn away to see. They should NEVER spawn underground shivers.
And what kind of an attack will they have? Ripping your soul from its fleshy confines? Or are they the one that you wake up to in the middle of the night standing over your bed. P.S. the tree is a giant mushroom shown to us in a previous picture in 1.8( terraria influence maybe)with an npc village.
