Minecraft: Story Mode, a “narrative-driven video game created by Telltale Games,” has been announced.

The news originally came by way of a browser-based “game” called Info Quest II, which fittingly included information about the new, unexpected project. Shortly after, both Mojang and Telltale officially posted in their respective blogs.

Minecraft: Story Mode will be “as Minecrafty as possible,” but it won’t be “an ‘official’ story for Steve.” It won’t explain “the world of Minecraft in detail” either, but Mojang states that “It will be a cool game.”

Like Telltale’s other releases, Minecraft: Story Mode will be come out episodically, with the first episode releasing in the vague window of 2015. In spite of Microsoft’s recent purchase of Mojang, the game will be available on Xbox consoles, PlayStation consoles, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android devices.
