Telltale Plans A “Minecraft” Game Series

They did it for comics (“The Walking Dead,” “The Wold Among Us”), games (“Borderlands”) and TV (“Game of Thrones”), now narrative-driven, multi-chapter game developer Telltale Games is teaming with “Minecraft” developers Mojang to develop a new game series combining their signature works.

Entitled “Minecraft: Story Mode,” the first chapter of the narrative-driven series is set to debut next year. The project is set in the world of Minecraft, but the series will feature an original story driven by player choice.

It will NOT be an add-on for the game, but rather a stand-alone product that will premiere in 2015 on consoles, computers and mobile devices. Like Telltale’s previous efforts, it will be released episodically. The game will “mix new characters with familiar themes, in an entirely original Minecraft experience, inspired by the Minecraft community”.
