Telltale Games and Mojang Announce Minecraft: Story Mode - A Telltale Games Series

Posted by Jessica Fisher on December 19th, 2014

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.

Posted by Andrew Stevens on December 9th, 2013

The series is expected to kick-off sometime in 2014 and will further explore the world of Pandora with new and existing characters.

"Our partnership is something that we are very excited about, because it will unite the incredibly rich world of Borderlands with Telltale's focus on story-telling driven by player choice, and characters that people truly care about."

The Best App Ever Awards - 5 Years Worth of Winners

Posted by Rob Rich on July 8th, 2013

The Best App Ever Awards have been around ever since ever since the App Store first came into being five years ago. Each year the best of the best have been culled from hundreds (even thousands) of releases. This list represents five years worth of winners, as decided by Best App Ever readers. Five years worth of apps and games that have been chosen above all others due to their all-around awesomeness. Five of the Best Apps Ever.

Here they are.


Shazam (Shazam Entertainment)
A lot of people were pretty excited when the iPhone first came out, and it was apps like Shazam that helped to keep them that way. In a time when smartphones were being scoffed at, being able to hold your phone up to a speaker and have it identify whatever song is currently playing was pretty freaking impressive. It goes so far beyond kitschy stuff like virtual lighters or photo booths. This is an app that serves an incredibly useful purpose; especially for those of us who enjoy finding new music.

2008 was the App Store’s first year, and even then there was no shortage of great apps and games for iOS users to enjoy. The likes of eWallet, Fieldrunners, Facebook, and Rolando were all exemplary nominees. However, in the end they just weren’t able to compete with the ability to identify any song that’s playing on the radio, in a store, or wherever else. It’s simply too handy.


Pocket God (Bolt Creative)
I don’t want to be presumptuous, but Bolt Creative may very well be responsible for creating the current “Feel like something’s missing? Wait for an update!” environment that has overtaken the App Store. With 47 (47!!!) episodes released to date, Pocket God is just might be the most thoroughly supported app in the world. This funky sandbox of wrongness has seen so many tweaks and changes over the years that it provides users with mini-games that cover almost every single popular genre on the App Store.

2009 was very close, but Pocket God managed to take first place over apps like 2Do and Twitter, and some wonderful games like Real Racing and Flight Control. Perhaps it was due to all the diversity inherent in all those episodes, or maybe people just really like torturing small virtual islanders. Whatever the reason, Bolt Creative captured a lot of hearts (and probably zapped them with lightning or tossed them to the sharks) that year.


Angry Birds (Rovio Entertainment Ltd)
Say and think what you will about Angry Birds and its current cultural phenomenon status; it’s still a clever game. Rovio’s little physics puzzler that could took the App Store by storm and has continued to do so with multiple spin-offs. Often duplicated, never replicated, this little bird-chucking game has solidified the genre as something synonymous with mobile gaming. There’s even one version that uses the “Star Wars” license. Honestly, there aren’t many other iOS games that can make that claim, and even fewer that aren’t directly affiliated with Lucasarts one way or another.

2010 saw the inclusion of a number of fantastic iOS games to the awards. Games like Infinity Blade, Real Racing 2, and Solipskier are all wonderful in their own right. That makes it all the more impressive so see them, and second place nominee Pocket Legends get edged out by a game about loading birds into a slingshot. Don’t underestimate the power of simple yet addictive gameplay.


Jetpack Joyride (Halfbrick Studios)
Barry Steakfries wasn’t new to the App Store when Jetpack Joyride was released, but it is the game that cemented his mobile celebrity status. Barry’s hijacking of a jetpack made of machine guns wasn’t exactly groundbreaking in terms of gameplay (think a hybrid of endless runners and classic corridor flying games like Copter), but Halfbrick polished the heck out of all the mechanics and absolutely overloaded it with personality. To this day it’s still one of the best examples of “just one more try” games on iOS.

2011 was a great year for iOS gamers. Infinity Blade II, World of Goo, Tiny Tower, Where’s My Water, and a whole lot more all made the list. To see little ol’ Barry with his impossible flying machine sitting above them all is a great indication of just how powerful and compulsive an extremely well-made endless game can be. Especially on a mobile platform.


Walking Dead: The Game (Telltale Games)
Telltale’s adventure games have been a bit hit-and-miss over the years, but pretty much everyone felt The Walking Dead was a major hit. Lee’s tale won over many a stone-hearted gamer, and the iOS release more or less cemented Apple’s mobile devices as viable gaming platforms. Making the tough choices isn’t any easier when it’s on a smaller screen, that’s for sure.

2012 was another great year; with games like Punch Quest and Outwitters, and apps like Clear and Action Movie FX narrowly edged out. It’s a testament to how far the App Store has come to see so many great and diverse offerings listed. And it’s a testament to Telltale Games’ ability to craft an incredible story about equally incredible characters to see Walking Dead: The Game come out on top.

Telltale's Walking Dead: The Game Coming To All iOS Devices This Thursday!

Posted by Rob LeFebvre on July 24th, 2012

Holy zombies! if you've been playing Telltale's amazing Walking Dead: The Game on Mac or PC via Steam, you know what fantastic news this is for gamers waiting for it to show up on iOS. The wait is now over, with the first episode ready to download this coming Thursday, July 26, for $4.99.

The fine minds at Telltale Games have spent a ton of time tweaking and optimizing the game for a touch interface. You'll be able to explore Robert Kirkman's award-winning post-apocalyptic universe with characters that don't appear in the comics or the television series. You'll get to play Lee Everett, a man with a dangerous past, as he navigates his new, zombie-infested world, trying to care for Clementine, a young girl that he meets and takes under his wing.

The Walking Dead for iOS will be $4.99 per episode for the future installments, or save 25% off the individual episodes with the Episode 2-5 bundle for $14.99. This is the same price as the game on Steam, which should prove interesting to see if iOS gamers are as willing to pay for a quality gaming experience as those on the PC and Mac platform.

Walking Dead: The Game will run on the new iPad, the iPad 2, the iPhone 4 & 4S, and any iPod touch 4th Generation or newer. Episode 2, already out on Steam, will release for iOS soon, according to the developers.
