Announcement by Mojang

...we’re collaborating with Telltale Games to create Minecraft: Story Mode! Here are some bullet points to celebrate!

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.

Interesting. A story inside the Minecraft universe but not cannon to the universe Steve lives in / the game is set in.

    I don't know if you are asking that or stating that.

    When Notch gave him a name, he also stated he would put a ? after it, Steve?

  • So.... they're going to take an open world sandbox game and turn it in to an "interactive" movie rails QTE game where the decisions you make don't seem to affect anything in any noticeable way. Wow. I did not see that coming.

    We already have this, it's called every adventure map ever made. However, this is probably going to be a tie in for the movie they got in the works.

    Wow. Telltale went from Walking Dead to Minecraft. Don't know if it's a step up or step down?

  • Definitely a big step down, IMO. They went from taking something that was originally story-driven and telling it in a new medium, to forcing a story onto something that is inherently not story-driven just to milk a new IP for some sweet dollars.

    Just a prediction as to what Telltale is going to do after:
