Under normal circumstances, Minecraft’s Creepers are hissing, phallic beasts that like to chase players and explode when they get close. But the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic means that these are very definitely not normal circumstances for much of the world, and so for the next week or so those creepy green bastards will be delivering a different sort of message to fans: Wash your hands. 

Not in the game—Creepers will be as dedicated to blowing you to pieces as they’ve always been when you’re actually playing—but in Minecraft social channels like Twitter and Facebook, you’ll see a different side of them. That comes courtesy of Mojang’s partnership with the United Nations Development Program and Heart17 “to raise awareness and engage youth to prevent, respond and recover” from the COVID-19 pandemic.
