So... Telltale's Making the New Minecraft...?


I was browsing Telltale Games' website this morning (scavenging for deals on Game of Thrones and Tales from the Borderlands), and discovered this:

Well, that's... definitely not what I expected.

Having recently played The Wolf Among Us, and eagerly starting The Walking Dead: Season Two, I was pretty much psyched to hear about their new project. I don't know what to think now. This actually feels like a way far gone version of the Tales from the Borderlands' announcement, where a lot of people, myself included went "Wuh? Does that series need an adventure game"

It's very strange... and I love it. This pairing oddly enough reminds me of this year's The Lego Movie. High quality artists working on a super large brand. Could it turn out that well? Maybe. Maybe I'll eat poop. But you know, I don't really like to eat poop, so I might not eat it. Poop.

There's also a nifty little announcement game you can play (that plays Telltale style). Check it out under "Learn More".

I think this is a sign of what's to come. There's a Minecraft movie in development. That paired with this announcement are tell tale (tee hee) signs of where Microsoft intends to take this franchise. They're going big. Real big.

I hope it's a gritty retelling of the game. I love gritty retellings!

That's my catch phrase. I called it.

I'm a university student studying film and animation.

I've often been called a narcissist, but I don't think it's true as much that I'm just quite loud.

My favorite word is "nourishment". Listen to it roll of the tongue. Nourishment.

Like sex with a Burmese python.
