In an announcement that took the world by surprise, and took the form of a cute interactive adventure press release, Minecraft developer Mojang and adventure game specialist Telltale have revealed that they're collaborating on an episodic narrative game called Minecraft: Story Mode.

Details about what the storyline will involve are scarce, but Mojang insists that it will be consulting with the community and aiming to make Story Mode “as Minecrafty as possible”.

What it won't do is impose an official backstory onto the famously malleable Minecraft world. The studio clearly understands that the appeal of the game is the freedom to create your own stories, so won't be getting in the way of that. “We’re not intending on creating an “official” story for Steve, or explaining the world of Minecraft in detail,” says Mojang. “It will be a cool game.”

It's not the first time Telltale has worked with another developer to create an adventure series set in an existing game franchise. The first episode of Tales from the Borderlands, based on Gearbox's RPG shooter, launched recently. Telltale also has a new Game of Thrones series on the go as well.

Mojang is famously choosy about what it does with Minecraft. The studio recently parted ways with movie director Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum) who was working on a pitch for a Minecraft movie with Warner Bros. “We came up with an approach that felt good to us, and I discussed it with Mojang, the gamemakers who make Minecraft,” Levy told the Wall Street Journal. “They were like, 'That doesn't sound like what we want. If we're going to see a movie get made, we don't know what we want, but that doesn't feel right.'”

Minecraft: Story Mode will be released sometime in 2015
