Minecraft story mode is currently being created by TellTale Games, the creators of episodic adventures for The Wolf Among Us, The Walking Dead, Tales from the Borderlands, and Game of Thrones. The series will be released episodically, have a strong cast of voice actors, a story line with player choices that affects the world, and will take players “from the Nether to the Farlands, the End, and beyond.” Minecraft story mode was announced on both the TellTale Games website, and the Mojang website.
In the Minecraft story mode, you play as Jesse, who is voiced by Patton Oswalt. You are at EnderCon with your friends you discover that something has gone horribly wrong. You and your friends are big fans of the legendary Order of the Stone; a warrior, redstone engineer, griefer, and architect who recently slayed an Ender Dragon. They are the best at what they do, and after something horrible is released at EnderCon, you and your friends set out on a journey to find the Order of the Stone and save the world.
The Minecraft story mode will be fully voiced, and other voice actors who will be in the Minecraft story mode are, Ashley Johnson, Corey Feldman, Scott Porter, Dave Fennoy, Billy West, Martha Plimpton, Brian Posehn, and Paul Reubens. Throughout the Minecraft story mode you will have to make quick and important decisions (like in other TellTale games). What you say to people, along with how you say it will decide where your story goes, because your decisions will matter.
The Chief Word Officer at Mojang, Owen Hill said in a TellTale Games blog post, “The interactive storytellers at Telltale are giving players the chance to explore their own unique interpretation of the Minecraft universe. They’ve crafted a story that follows the logic of Minecraft, but still manages to feel original. It’s actually pretty funny too. And the pig is adorable. We’re super excited about players digging deeper into the world of Minecraft: Story Mode later this year.”
Minecraft story mode is a standalone game that will be available for download some time later this year for iOS, Android, PC, Mac, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, and Xbox One.
