    In a very bizarre announcement to come from Mojang and Telltale, it would appear that the story based gaming studio Telltale, known for their award winning titles The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, are now taking on one the strangest franchises to tell a story in... Minecraft. ​
    :arrow: SOURCE
    I do not really have words or a sense of what in the world to say to this announcement. Don't get me wrong, I am still a big Minecraft fan, but seeing it get a story mode is... off-putting to say the least. I have full faith that Telltale could create a very interesting tale for this game, as my trust in them skyrocketed after recently playing their Game of Thrones first episode earlier this month. ​
    I look forward to seeing where this goes, but what is everyone else's take on this​

    I'd like to point out that nobody in that boardroom thought this was an insane idea. This should worry you.

    Telltale working on it gives me some closure though as there made great games and at least it isn't some crappy company

    And insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    Repeating past success can lead to ultimate future failure

    They're making the same type of game over and over again, and their games so far have been good. Does that mean you're insane if you think this game won't be good? :unsure:

    Change can be good in games (Mario's transition from 2d to 3d was great) or change can be awful

    Nah SA1 and SA2 were pretty great IMO

    Earthworm Jim had a much worst transition to 3d than sonic had and thats why there is no more Jim.

    Why does this thread feel like a prolific inspiration quote database so far .-.

    I'm actually interested in how this will play out, since most telltale games have branched paths in them and minecraft is all about progressing to get to The End (in various ways), we'll probably have a story line that will at some point split into 2 and each have it's own ending.
    Or maybe I'm wrong and they'll screw this up, only time will tell.

    I'd like to remind you of the horror that started it all, Sonic 3D Blast, followed recently by Sonic Boom, aka Sonic 3D Blast 2: Electric Boogaloo

    I never beat ewj 3d lol. Still have it though.
