Late last year, Telltale Games made an announcement about a story-driven Minecraft game, called Story Mode. The announcement wasn't especially detailed, though it did note some important deviations from Minecraft proper - it would not be an expansion of, or directly played from, Minecraft itself - but beyond that, not much else was said. Now, it seems they are ready to share more at Minecon this weekend! What do we know so far about Story Mode?
- 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.
Telltale Games has a pretty solid history with story-driven games, though it remains to be seen what story they will tell with Minecraft. What do you think the story will be?
