Minecraft: Story Mode is a graphic adventure developed by Telltale Games and published by them and Mojang, the original creators of Minecraft. Do not expect a sandbox adventure in which the crafting and building are the basis, because this release has little to do with the original Minecraft. Only the title, graphics, and a few remnants of the original. In this new edition, the goal is to save the Minecraft world from a dark evil by making decisions that will change the course of the story . Each decision you make affects and alters the story, so you have to be very careful if you want the story to have a good ending.
The game starts by giving you the option to choose the main character. His or her name is Jesse. I say his or her because you can choose if you want to play with a male or female character . You will rely on the company of your pig pet, Reuben, a very funny animal that is comedic relief in this adventure. You will also be accompanied by Petra, Axel, and Olivia, three loyal friends that will follow Jesse to the end of the world (I couldn't have said it better myself).
Once you download the game, you will see that the graphics are the same as in Mojang's Minecraft; pixel cubes of different materials knock into shape the world of this adventure. Everything is cubic and squared, but the facial expressions of the characters are very well defined. The environments and backgrounds will delight the fans of Minecraft , even though the community of this game have created absolutely impressive scenarios in the mods of the videogame.
Be careful with your decisions
This time, Telltale Games has aimed its creation at all of the public . Unlike other installments, such as Game of Thrones, The Wolf among Us, or The Walking Dead, your decisions will not kill characters. Of course, the decisions you make are as important as in the previous games of the company, but the consequences are not as deep, and will have a fewer repercussions. Minecraft: Story Mode is divided into five episodes, all with the same characters developing the same story .

The mechanics are quite simple; the game features point-and-click gameplay in which you are free to decide between several options in conversation trees . Depending on your decisions, the story will go one of a variety of directions. In addition, there are lots of quick time events in which you have to press the correct keys to save your character. You have to be very focused to avoid failing. Moreover, you will have to solve many puzzles and do some crafting.
