Minecraft: Story Mode Announced by Telltale and Mojang

Minecraft - Store Mode

Telltale Games, the studio behind the likes of The Walking DeadThe Wolf Among Us and Tales from the Borderlands, has announced a really crazy collaboration project with Mojang. They’re making Minecraft: Story Mode.

This is a completely separate, episodic, narrative-driven Minecraft game. It will involve player choice. Whether or not it will be an adventure game like what Telltale normally makes or a sandbox adventure similar to the current Minecraft remains to be seen.

Mojang provided some quick details on their own post for the news.

  • Minecraft: Story mode will be a narrative-driven video game created by Telltale Games. It will be about Minecraft.
  • Mojang is collaborating with Telltale and members of the community to make Minecraft: Story Mode as Minecrafty as possible.
  • The first episode will be released some time in 2015, and will be available on Xbox consoles, PlayStation consoles, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android-based devices.
  • Minecraft: Story Mode will be released episodically, just like The Wolf Among Us, The Walking Dead, or the recent Tales from the Borderlands, which is another developer-collaboration series between Telltale Games and Gearbox Software.
  • We’re not intending on creating an “official” story for Steve, or explaining the world of Minecraft in detail. It will be a cool game.
  • The Minecraft 2 thing was a joke. No really. It was a joke.

In addition to all this, we’ve got an interactive press release in the form of InfoQuest II. You can check that out here.

So, Minecraft: Story Mode from Telltale? Yeah, I never saw this coming. What do you think?
