Telltale and Mojang Announce Minecraft: Story Mode

Adventure game developer Telltale Games is working on a new episodic series set within the Minecraft universe, the studio announced today.

It's titled Minecraft: Story Mode – A Telltale Game Series and will be coming to PC, Mac, and mobile devices, as well as PlayStation and Xbox platforms in 2015. According to Telltale's official announcement, the series "will mix new characters with familiar themes, in an entirely original Minecraft experience, inspired by the Minecraft community and the game that continues to inspire a generation."

It's certainly an interesting concept, and after seeing how well Telltale managed to pull off the first episode of Tales From the Borderlands, I remain quite optimistic. What about you? Do you think Telltale will be able to deliver a compelling adventure experience set within the blocky world of Minecraft?
