In other news, weâ€re collaborating with Telltale Games to create Minecraft: Story Mode! Here are some bullet points to celebrate!
Minecraft: Story mode will be a narrative-driven video game created by Telltale Games. It will be about Minecraft.
Mojang is collaborating with Telltale and members of the community to make Minecraft: Story Mode as Minecrafty as possible.
The first episode will be released some time in 2015, and will be available on Xbox consoles, PlayStation consoles, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android-based devices.
Minecraft: Story Mode will be released episodically, just like The Wolf Among Us, The Walking Dead, or the recent Tales from the Borderlands, which is another developer-collaboration series between Telltale Games and Gearbox Software.
Weâ€re not intending on creating an â€œofficialâ€ story for Steve, or explaining the world of Minecraft in detail. It will be a cool game.
The Minecraft 2 thing was a joke. No really. It was a joke.
If youâ€re desperate for more insight, read Telltale Gamesâ€ post, come back next year, or calm down and play Info Quest II again.
Happy holidays from all the Mojangstas!

Check out the interactive... trailer(?) here: http://www.telltalegames.com/minecraftstorymode/
Image not indicative of actual gameplay. Maybe.
What are your thoughts on Telltale's new project? Does it have potential, or are they just hopping on the bandwagon for any popular game that introduces an "interactive story"?
