Telltale and Netflix trade Minecraft for Stranger Things

Minecraft and Stranger Things have gone hand-in-hand before, as seen in the official crossover skin pack above, but this deal between streaming megalith Netflix and adventure game studio Telltale (as reported by Techradar) seems a little more direct. Telltale will be adapting their Minecraft: Story Mode games into an interactive, streaming video series for kids on Netflix, while Netflix will be granting the studio the…

Humble selling best Telltale games for 15 smackeroos

Oh boy, have we got sales news for you, vast gaping maw of collective consumerism. Isn’t it a beautiful day for buying things? The Humbler Bundlers have put together a bunch of Telltale’s better games for $15. Yes, everyone has probably already got their critically acclaimed zombies ‘n’ conversation games based on the Walking Dead. But has everybody got Batman? Has everybody got Game of…

Telltale’s Minecraft: Story Mode has started season 2

Young people: what are they like? We just don't know.

You can now resume your undercover investigations, as Minecraft: Story Mode - Season 2 [official site] has started. Telltale released the first episode…

Minecraft: Story Mode – Season 2 starts in July

Telltale Games have announced a second season of their cuboid adventure series Minecraft: Story Mode [official site]. As is the Telltale way, Season 2 will pick off where the first left off, remembering your decisions and lumping you with the consequences. Though the consequences here are somewhat sunnier than in e.g. The Walking Dead seasons, seeing as it's based on Minecraft. Season 2 will kick…

Minecraft: Story Mode episode 1 free on Steam for a bit

You're still 'down with' teenagers, of course you are. Them with their interest in skateboarding and Ant & Dec and their cool lingo like 'cowabunga', 'necking' and 'jam that with a slice of ham'. You'll impress all your teen relatives at the coming month of festivities, I'm sure. But what about the younger ones? Do preteens still calling good things 'well Cbeebies' and bad things…

Minecraft: Story Mode Ep 7 Jacking In Next Week

Ooh everyone's jacking in nowadays. Even video game characters can't resist slapping on their cybergoggles and, apparently, playing a blocky version of Dishonored. That's what Jesse will be up to in Episode 7 of Minecraft: Story Mode [official site], which Telltale have announced will launch next Tuesday. With a sentient Redstone computer taking over everyone's minds, it looks like Jesse is entering the cyberzone to…

Minecraft: Story Mode Welcomes Celebrity YouTubers

Telltale's Minecraft: Story Mode [official site] has brought in a load of famous YouTube people for its latest episode, which seems like something they should've done from the start. Growed-ups might coo over the sardonic comedy stylings of Patton Oswalt (I've enjoyed him in Lady Dynamite lately - good innit?) but kids would much rather adventure with Stampy Cat. Now they can meet him, and…

Minecraft: Story Mode Ep 5 Decamps To Sky City

The fifth episode of the Telltale episodic adventure Minecraft: Story Mode [official site] is out now - it was due to be the final episode but Telltale are now going to do an extra three episodes as DLC not covered by the season pass. So a kind of epilogue, I guess? Or maybe a mini adventure? Or maybe we will watch a man patting trees…

Telltale Announce Extra Minecraft: Story Mode Episodes

Telltale's episodic adventure Minecraft: Story Mode [official site] is due to wrap up this month an- oh no, no it isn't. Telltale today announced that the fifth episode of their storytelling spin-off will launch next Tuesday, March 29th, but also announced that it won't be the final episode. Another three parts are coming later this year, Telltale now say, "post-season episodes" sold as DLC beyond…

Minecraft: Story Mode Ep 4 Exploring Far Lands Today

I'm not much of a Minecrafter myself, but as a fan of the work of algorithms I was fascinated by the idea of the brick 'em up's old Far Lands - distant, distant places where the world generation and physics started to go wonky and create alien landscapes (because numbers). So I'm pretty interested to see the concept pop up in Telltale's episodic adventure Minecraft:…

Telltale’s Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 3 Out Today

Crumbs, Telltale Games aren't half barrelling through their block-oriented episodic adventure Minecraft: Story Mode [official site]. While their recently-concluded Borderlands and Game of Thrones series would go two, three, even four months between episodes, Minecraft's dropped three episodes within six weeks. Hark at you, Minecrafters, aren't you so flipping special! Episode 3: The Last Place You Look is out later today, and this here collection…

Cor, That Was Fast! Minecraft: Story Mode Ep 2 Today

The second chapter of Telltale's Minecraft: Story Mode [official site] is out today, which is a little surprising considering the spin-off episodic storyventure game only started a fortnight ago, on October 13th. Telltale's last few series have gone two, three, even four months between the first and second episodes, so coo-ee, aren't you fancy? I'm not playing Minecraft: Story Mode myself and am not sure…

Adventure Ho! Telltale’s Minecraft: Story Mode Started

Am I a big enough fan of Paul Reubens, dear Pee Wee Herman, to pick up Minecraft: Story Mode [official site] to hear more of him? Prrrobably not. Not until it's a little cheaper, anyway. But perhaps your interest in Minecraft and/or Telltale Games' episodic adventures and/or voice-havers like Patton Oswalt and Billy West is enough for you. If so, good news! The first episode…

Minecraft: Story Mode Unearths Episode 1 Trailer

Pinch and a punch for the first of the month - and no returns. Now we've dispensed with the formalities, OH GOD it's October where did this come from I'm not ready for this did you know it was coming how could they let this happen? While October for me mostly means sudden dread of everything I thought was far in the future, it also…

Telltale’s Minecraft: Story Mode Starts October 15th

Minecraft: Story Mode [official site] is, confusingly, not a story mode for Minecraft. It's a separate episodic series of adventure games from Telltale Games, the merry gang behind The Walking Dead and Tales from the Borderlands and all that. As Adam noted, it's an adventure in that Telltale style which seems to smoosh together the LEGO Movie and Minecraft YouTuber adventures - and to that…

Episodic Awesome: Telltale’s Minecraft – Story Mode

When Telltale announced that they'd be working on an episodic Minecraft adventure game [official site], the old hound cynicism sloped across my chamber and nestled its head in my lap, looking up at the screen with eyes like sorrowful saucers. He let out a wheezy whine. The size of the license is more important than the potential for pleasant, semi-passive interactive storytelling, it seemed to…

Tell You No Lie – Telltale Making Minecraft: Story Mode

So, that Minecraft's pretty popular, isn't it? Apparently worth a fair chunk of change too. I see sprogs wandering the streets brandishing foam pixelated swords all the time, Minecraft t-shirts on their chests. Playing it has turned folks on YouTube into Internet celebrities and heck, it even has its own convention. In a way, it's surprising that it's taken this long to make a baffling…
