Minecraft: Story Mode: "In and Out"
Posted: Thursday September 17th, 2015 by

I'm not sure how it escaped my attention, but apparently Telltale is making an episodic Minecraft game called 'Story Mode'. The first episode, "The Order of the Stone" will feature a cinematic story, customization options, and Telltale's characteristic "choice-based" gameplay. [more info]

I admit here, I meh-ed pretty hard. Telltale does a wonderful job creating episodic games. But, to my mind, this isn't what Minecraft is all about. Then, while watching the trailer, I heard Patton Oswalt's easily identifiable voice coming out of the lead character, Jesse. I know a single person's voice shouldn't draw me to a game, but it did. Then I looked at the other people lending their voices to the game. Catherine Taber (trust me, you've heard her voice a LOT), Brian Posehn (brilliant comedian), Ashley Johnson (Ellie - The Last of Us), Scott Porter, Martha Plimpton, Dave Fennoy (Vol'jin - MoP), Corey Feldman (yeah), Billy West (Fry - Futurama), Paul Reubens (Pee Wee Herman). And, apparently, there are more to come.

I was sold. And, so was the boy. Though, he bought into the game seeing the cover art alone.
What do you think Minecraft players? You in?
