Telltale is at it again! Another month, another game — this time Minecraft is on the table to become an interactive story-driven game, but not exactly similar to Tales from the Borderlands or Game of Thrones: A TellTale Games Series.
Because it’s just been announced for release sometime in 2015, information about the collaboration between Telltale Games and Mojang is limited. So, let me tell you what has been said (thus far).
Minecraft: Story Mode will be set in the world of Minecraft but will be story-mode driven with the focus on players choices — very Telltale Games-esque, as we know by now. (Note, this isn’t a DLC of any sort for Minecraft, it’s a game of its own.)
If you want to know more about why Mojang and Telltale Games decided to collaborate, you find out more by playing a quick flash game on the Mojang site. It’s created in a Telltale sort of way where you, the “player,” can choose how to find out more about their collaboration via a choice of answers.
What can be learned is that Telltale wants the interactive experiences of Minecraft to be available in Minecraft: Story Mode; the new game will follow a similar tone to Minecraft because unlike the other games Telltale has created, Minecraft lacks specific characters and plot development. The little “info” game then ends with the “Mojangsta” exploding.
So, in the somewhat distant future, Minecraft: Story Mode will be released on various platforms such as PC ( and most likely Mac), gaming consoles (PS4 and Xbox One for certain) and mobile devices (iOS and Android). Telltale Games is definitely on fire for the development of games recently and it doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime in the future.
