Story Mode is a five-part series based on the Minecraft game. In case you have been living under a rock, Minecraft is a game designed to allow the player to build his/her own world cube by cube. Story Mode introduces new characters in a new, original experience set to a familiar theme.
Players will control protagonist Jesse throughout the season, as portrayed by actor Patton Oswalt. Jesse and his group of friends revere the legendary Order of the Stone; four adventurers who slayed an Ender Dragon. The Order are the very best at what they do: Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Griefer, and Architect. While at EnderCon, Jesse and his friends discover that something is wrong… something dreadful. Terror is unleashed, and they must set out on a journey to find The Order of the Stone if they are to save their world from oblivion.
“We’ve worked closely with the amazing team at Mojang to ensure this story is a natural fit for the Minecraft world fans already know and love. As Jesse, players will steer their own path through a tale of adventure and survival; all brought to life by an all-star cast. Through Telltale’s choice-based gameplay and a story spanning from the Nether to the Farlands, the End, and beyond, we can’t wait for fans to experience this new take on the beloved world of Minecraft.” – Kevin Bruner, CEO and co-founder of Telltale Games.
“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.” – Owen Hill, Chief Word Officer at Mojang.
The first season is voiced by the aforementioned Patton Oswalt, along with Brian Posehn, Ashley Johnson, Scott Porter, Martha Plimpton, Dave Fennoy, Corey Feldman, Billy West, and Paul Reubens along with several more unannounced actors.
Minecraft: Story Mode will be available on PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC/Mac and iOS/Android devices but as of yet does not have a ESRB rating and will release THIS YEAR!
