Telltale Games has designed some amazing stories, including Tales From the Borderlands, The Walking Dead, and Wolf Among Us. Now they have set their sights on Minecraft. In collaboration with Mojang, Telltale Games is developing Minecraft: Story Mode. The game will be an episodic story of a new character in the Minecraft world, and is set to premiere in 2015.

“People really like the idea of stories about Minecraft, but forcing a narrative into our core game experience would restrict players’ freedom to view the world in their own unique ways. Instead, letting them explore an alternate interpretation via Minecraft: Story Mode, driven by the proven might of Telltale, seems like a no-brainer,” said Owen Hill, Chief Word Officer at Mojang, in a press release. “We’re big fans of Telltale Games at Mojang, and we can’t wait to reveal more details on Story Mode soon.”

For an interesting way to learn more about Minecraft: Story Mode check out their interactive game, Info Quest II.
