"Developed in partnership with our friends at Mojang, this all-ages adventure series kicks off a thrilling story full of many elements essential to the world of Minecraft, combined with Telltale's trademark choice-based gameplay," said Kevin Bruner, CEO and co-founder of Telltale Games. "There are plenty of exciting details we've been keeping under wraps, and we're thrilled that players will soon be starting their own adventure through the Nether to the Farlands and beyond with Jesse and The Order of the Stone."
"One of the greatest things about this project is that it gives the community a chance to interact with the world of Minecraft in a new and different way. It also marks the beginning of some exciting narrative-form content based on our game," said Lydia Winters, Brand Director at Mojang. "We worked directly with Telltale on every step of the process. Together we've created a blend of the amazing narratives that Telltale creates with all the fun and adventure you know and love from Minecraft. It's got everything: creepers, crafting, an incredible cast of characters, and even an adorable pig. How awesome does that sound?"
