Finally, Minecraft is getting a story mode in the form of an episodic series done by the team at Telltale Games.

Mojang and Telltale Games have announced that they are collaborating to release an episode-based series, Minecraft: Story Mode. We recently reported that Shawn Levy's idea for a Minecraft-based motion picture was rejected by Mojang. Levy tried to make a 'Goonies'-esque plot set in the Minecraft universe, which doesn't have a set lore because it's an open world farming game. Luckily, the talented team at Telltale Games will finally give us an official story set in this popular, blocky world. While this doesn't necessarily establish the game's lore, it's nice to see some sort of story happen.

"We’re not intending on creating an 'official' story for Steve, or explaining the world of Minecraft in detail. It will be a cool game." a Mojang representative said.

You can expect the first episode of Minecraft: Story Mode sometime in 2015 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PC, iOS and Android. More details should be available in the new year.

Better add this one to the list:
