While Telltale Games has closed down, Variety is reporting that the company's episodic point-and-click adventure series Minecraft: Story Mode is now on Netflix. So you can enjoy Story Mode from the comfort of your nearest tablet, whenever you like. And yes, it is still interactive.
If you didn't play Minecraft: Story Mode this is the best chance you're going to get to experience the surprisingly intelligent plotline and excellent voice acting. Celebrities and veteran voice actors lent their talents to Story Mode, making it the best-acted Telltale Game we ever saw. Patton Oswalt, Catherine Taber, Brian Posehn, John Hodgman, Matthew Mercer, David Fennoy, and Corey Feldman all voiced characters in the game.
Right now, the first three episodes of the series are available on Netflix. IGN is reporting that another two episodes will land on the streaming platform on December 5th, 2018. The original first season of Minecraft: Story Mode ran for eight episodes in 2015. Telltale released a five-episode second season in 2017.
Because Minecraft: Story Mode wrapped in 2017, it is the last completed project from Telltale. The studio shut down earlier this year after reports of major layoffs surfaced. At the time, the studio was still in production for the final season of its The Walking Dead adaptation. The Walking Dead: The Final Season has since moved to Skybound Entertainment, who reassembled much of the original development team to finish out the remaining episodes.
