Minecraft: Story Mode - Ep1 The Order of the Stone

Minecraft: Story Mode has you creating your own adventure in the Minecraft universe. Created by Telltale Games (the creators of other well-known game series like The Walking Dead), it is a collaboration with Mojang (the creators of Minecraft, of course!). Telltale Games has been working with Mojang to ensure that Minecraft: Story Mode feels like it is truly a part of the Minecraft world fans have come to know and love. The first episode of the 5-part series launches digitally today on a range of platforms. You will find yourself in the shoes of a hero named Jesse (who can be male or female, depending on your preference). As chaos descends, you will find yourself on an epic adventure in the hopes of saving your world. We have some information from the press release to share with you below. It includes specifics on when physical copies will launch and for what systems, as well as a new Minecraft: Story Mode launch trailer with cast interviews. Do you have what it takes go forth and rescue your world from certain doom?


Episode 1: ‘The Order of the Stone,’ the first of five episodes in the season, is available digitally worldwide today on PC and Mac from the Telltale Online Store, Steam, and other digital distribution services, on the PlayStation®Network for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, and on the Xbox Games Store for Xbox One® and Xbox 360®.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
