Minecraft: Story Mode - A Telltale Game Series

First trailer drops for Minecraft: Story Mode – A Telltale Game Series

We were a little skeptical when we first heard about Minecraft: Story Mode – A Telltale Game Series – a marriage of this generation’s best video game story teller and this gaming era’s biggest time sink for gamers of all ages didn’t really seem like something that should’ve fitted together. Yet, after watching the very first trailer for Minecraft: Story Mode unveiled at MineCon, I can safely say that I am very intrigued. Check out the trailer for yourself below: While this will be the first time in a long time that Telltale Games hasn’t used its signature animation in a video game, Minecraft: Story Mode still looks like it will use the same storytelling format of heavy cutscenes with player input where choice is needed. As to whether Minecraft: Story Mode fits into the Minecraft world as it is today, CEO of Telltale Games, Kevin Bruner says: “We’ve worked closely with the ...

Match made in comic book heaven: Marvel and Telltale Games to make video games together

If there’s a game studio who’s on a roll this past year, it would have to be Telltale Games.

Telltale Games is making Minecraft: Story Mode, because we needed more reasons to play Minecraft

Yesterday was chock full of games news, but one headline that caught my eye was the announcement that Telltale Games is making Minecraft: Story Mode in conjunction with Minecraft‘s creators, Mojang. Of course, if you haven’t heard of Telltale Games yet, they’re widely considered to be one of the premiere developers of story driven video games, so it’s at the very least interesting to hear that Telltale is picking up a project for a game that essentially has no story or lore (meta game doesn’t count as story). Telltale has made their name most recently by creating stories within the worlds of well-established universes – Back to the Future, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, just to name a few. Minecraft: Story Mode is said to explore the world of Minecraft but won’t directly involve the game’s existing “protagonist”, Steve, or really involve the world of Minecraft or its background. Furthermore, Minecraft: Story Mode ...
