I know what you’re thinking, and no, this is not an extremely early April Fools Day prank. Announced earlier today over at Mojang’s blog, Telltale announced that they will be working on Minecraft: Story Mode, a Minecraft oriented game.
If you’re thinking, “what the hell can they possibly do with Minecraft?” you aren’t the only one. We don’t know much about it other then a release date of “sometime in 2015”. So far, we have no idea what the game will be about, although Mojang has stated that
“Telltale’s game series will mix new characters with familiar themes, in an entirely original Minecraft experience, inspired by the Minecraft community and the game that continues to inspire a generation.”
While Telltale is taking the helm in terms of writing, they will also be taking ideas from the Minecraft community to make the game as “Minecrafty” as possible. The game will be released episodically, just like every other game they’ve done, and will be available for Xbox consoles, PlayStation consoles, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android devices.
