Minecraft remains one of the most popular video games in the market right now, which has even created spin off books, merchandise and reportedly an upcoming movie. But for now, while waiting if the last one will ever push though, you can actually create your own movie while still playing a game. Popular video game developer Telltale Games has now released the mobile version of the Minecraft Story Mode, an episodic spin-off game that you can now play on your Android devices.
In this “adventure of a lifetime”, you play Jesse, who can either be a boy or girl depending on what you like. Together with your friends, you will take on a perilous journey in order to find the Order of the Stone, legendary slayers of the Ender Dragon: Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Griefer, and Architect. You need to find them/it in order to save the world from oblivion after a terror is unleashed, as it always happens in games like these.
The game has a unique outcome every time you play since all the decisions you make will drive the story to its own conclusion. You get to actually make your own dialogue and make your choices during the action scenes and even when just walking or talking. The characters are voiced by such pop culture and gaming luminaries like Patton Oswalt (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D), Ashley Johnson (Tales From the Borderland), Scott Porter (Friday Night Lights), Corey Feldman (Goonies), Paul Ruebens (Peewee’s Playhouse) and many more.
You can download Minecraft Story Mode Episode 1: The Order of the Stone from the Google Play Store and the Amazon App Store for $4.99. There will be five episodes all in all for this game series but no word yet on how much each succeeding episode will cost and when will they come out.
