Minecraft: Story Mode Launches

Minecraft Story Mode
Minecraft, a sophisticated multiplayer sandbox and survival game, has been expanding to many different platforms. It’s become a cultural phenomenon, with plenty of people live streaming what they do, and children wearing branded shirts. Minecraft has continued to grow and it’s taking a big leap into the realm of linear gameplay.

Minecraft: Story Mode, a game made between Mojang and Telltale Games (The Walking Dead games) seems to play much more like an RPG. You go around completing quests while your actions contribute to an overarching plot. If you’re a fan of Minecraft you might consider buying this $5 to play on your phone while on the bus.

What’s more exciting is that in the Play Store, Minecraft: Story Mode is shown as being compatible with Android TV. This isn’t too surprising. Other games that Telltale Games has developed are also Android TV compatible. Having these games just work on your TV creates a much better experience, and having serious games like Minecraft (which exists on the mainstream Xbox) help validate the platform to potential consumers.
