I just finished episode one of Telltale’s newest adventure game, Minecraft: Story Mode. I was curious to see just how Telltale would go about telling a story in the Minecraft universe, considering Minecraft is essentially a wide open sandbox with no objectives or story of any sort.
Minecraft: Story Mode plays the same as the other Telltale games, with the player controlling a character while periodically choosing dialogue options or making split second decisions via QTE’s.
The game will surely appease fans of the Minecraft universe, as it wastes no time featuring just about every creature and object in the game. It’s characters will also occasionally reference crafting recipes for objects in the game, and several of the game’s puzzles center around crafting tables.
The story was interesting from the opening moments, and I quickly became attached to the characters. They are well voiced and they each have unique and interesting personalities. The game is lighthearted and comedic and will likely appeal to gamers young and old. Minecraft: Story Mode has an excellent soundtrack that I can’t wait to hear more of once Episode Two arrives.
Minecraft: Story Mode Episode One is out now on consoles, PC/Mac, iOS and Android. I definitely recommend checking it out whether you’re a Minecraft fan, a Telltale fan or both. You’ll surely be amused!
Whether you’re a new Xbox One owner looking to add to your game collection, or simply new to Telltale games, there’s a great deal going on right now! You can get FIVE Telltale games for the price of two!!
Telltale games are usually about $25 a season if you buy the season pass (they’re games released episodically), however for the price of two season passes you can get five of their games.
$55 gets you:
The Walking Dead Season One (plus the epilogue)
The Walking Dead Season Two
The Wolf Among Us
Game of Thrones Episode One (plus the season pass which gets you the future episodes as they’re released)
Tales from the Borderlands Episode One (plus the season pass)
What a monster deal! I just finished episode one of Tales from the Borderlands tonight and it’s absolutely amazing, I can’t wait to see the rest of the season. Game of Thrones was a little slower paced but ended on a bombshell that has me anticipating what comes next. I wasn’t a huge fan of the Walking Dead games and didn’t finish either, but now I’m tempted to give them another try. Lastly, The Wolf Among Us was absolutely amazing and I’d love to give it another playthrough.
I highly recommend picking this up while it’s on sale right now, especially if you’re already thinking of getting the season passes for Game of Thrones and Borderlands. Why not pony up five more bucks and get three more games thrown into the mix?
If you’re an Xbox One owner and were looking forward to checking out episode one of Telltale’s Game of Thrones adventure game today, you might be slightly disappointed. Although it’s been released on PC and PS4 today, it won’t make it to the Xbox One until tomorrow, December 3rd. It’s not too long to wait, but it’s unfortunate that we have to wait awhile longer to play the highly anticipated game.
Game of Thrones will also be released on iOS on Thursday, the fourth.
