Nobody expected Telltale to announce a "narrative driven" take on Minecraft this morning. Thing is, while seemingly everyone loves playing Minecraft, nobody is playing the game because of the story. That's exactly what's causing the partnership between Telltale and Minecraft to look like it's coming from left field.
While Telltale's track record with games like The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones inspires some confidence that they can pull it off, the Minecraft announcement was still met with much confusion, cynicism, and snark. Oh, and jokes. People made lots and lots of jokes this morning following the Telltale announcement. Don't get me wrong: some people are definitely looking forward to the Teltalle Minecraft game. But mostly, people seem to collectively be going "WTF?"
Here's some of what the internet had to say about Minecraft's upcoming story mode:
