Mojang and Telltale team up for Minecraft: Story Mode, a narrative game set in the Minecraft universe



Two of the industry’s best up-and-coming developers are coming together to make a game that’ll make everyone take notice. They’re calling it Minecraft: Story Mode, and it’ll bring the narrative Minecraft never had to the forefront.

Minecraft, a game where you “mine” resources and materials and “craft” items and buildings, has always left it up to players to tell their own stories and set their own goals and objectives, but this is the first time the series will introduce a plot that is filled with decision making and characters you’ll be able to identify with.

Telltale has developed a knack for these sorts of things with the company creating the wildly popular The Walking Dead series of games, as well as the newly-launched Game of Thrones series. Telltale is also responsible for Tales from the Borderlands, a game which was launched just this morning over at Google Play.

Mojang and Telltale have already confirmed that mobile devices will be included in the game’s release plans, and we imagine Android sits near the top of their list of platforms to support next to iOS. The company made it a note to mention that this will be a new standalone game instead of an add-on just in case you were curious about how all this would work.

That’s about the length of our knowledge, but we’re promised more info will be along shortly. You are officially permitted to get excited.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. If it wasn’t for the mention of the Android game release today, this would be a really far stretched article to be considered Android news

    1. Other than the fact Minecraft is on the top of the list for Android games.

      1. By that logic we should have articles tied to every #1 app in the Play Store.

        1. Do you notice how many articles are about apps/games on here or any other site for that matter?

          Sometimes they do a article just on an app getting updated, or a app getting pulled.

          Im not saying its really “Android New” but it is Android related.
