Every year for April Fools' Day, there is always a prank produced by Mojang on Minecraft. Although, this year's prank wasn't technically a prank, because there was a change in the mechanics of the game, although it only lasted one day. This is in contrast to a prank from a couple years back, which didn't get good reviews from Minecraft players. The prank of 2018 made the texture of materials in the game look low-grade, which caused much panic among players who believed it was due to newly installed mods. This year's prank, however, arguably has won everyone's approval.
All a player had to do was write and sign in a "Book and Quill" then throw it in the portal to the Nether. If you were to go into the Nether after throwing the book in, you would have noticed you ended up in a different world. The places players entered into were beautifully crafted. The "prank" doesn't stop there; users can tell fellow players what they wrote in their book, which can then be used to create the same world on their game.
Despite stress and anxiety due to COVID-19, people keeping a light heart during it all is definitely making a bad situation better. Personally, I'm sure the amount of servers being created on Minecraft is increasing as many people are continuing to self-quarantine, kids and adults alike. Although I didn't see the "prank" myself, I'm glad Mojang is keeping routine with their yearly Minecraft April Fools' Day prank, because all in all, a routine is what we're needing right now.
