Minecraft: Story Mode is a narrative-driven video game series by Telltale Games in collaboration with Minecraft developer Mojang. Both Mojang and Telltale have released blog posts about the announcement. Mojang also created an interactive press release called Info Quest II.
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.
