Telltale Games wants to tell you a story about Minecraft

, | News

“I chopped some wood from a tree. I dug a hole. I found some coal and crafted a torch. I chopped some more wood from trees. I made a crafting table.” Telltale Games thinks there may be more to Minecraft than that. They’re partnering with Mojang to create Minecraft: Story Mode, a narrative-driven game series like The Walking Dead or Tales from the Borderlands but with more exploding zombies. According to Mojang, Minecraft: Story Mode will not attempt to cement the franchise’s lore.

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.

Minecraft: Story Mode’s first episode will launch in 2015 for Xbox and PlayStation consoles, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android-based devices.
