Minecraft: Story Mode

Telltale Games brings their take of adventure games to Mojang’s Minecraft world in Minecraft: Story Mode. Due to release this fall on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Wii U, PC/Mac, iOS and Android devices.

I just want to preface this by saying I have a deep feeling of disgust in myself, and that I didn’t try very hard on the drawing. That is all.

We here at Pisstar want to share our love of shameless cash grabs on popular ips- I mean video games with you all. That is why we decided to team up with Mojang to make minecraft: the Movie!

Our story centers around mike, a miner who loves to build, and oink, his pig who loves to destroy. To bad he can’t impress Britney, the girl of his dreams, with his creations before oink destroys them.

Little do they know that soon, they will be thrust into the wild by count wither, looking for a way to save Britney from count wither in his nether fortress, and defeat him before he can gather his armies to infect the overworld with the nethers plague.

Can he and oink for once work together, in a harmony of creation and destruction?

(I’m taking a shit as I write this; the shit stain on the toilet paper looks better than my designs)

The adventures of Jesse and the NEW Order of the Stone are set to continue this month! In the first episode since the Wither Storm finale, Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 5 - ‘Order Up’ will be available starting March 29th!

And that’s not the only exciting news for Minecraft: Story Mode players today… we can also reveal that Order Up! won’t be the last you see of Jesse, as Episode Five will bridge the gap between the Wither Storm story arc, and three all-new adventures that will continue as post-season episodes set to release in the coming months of 2016!

All three of these episodes will be add-ons to the season, so you’ll need to own Minecraft: Story Mode in order to purchase and play these three chapters in the series which will include episodes 6, 7, and 8.

We’re keeping further info on those three extra episodes a secret for now, but what can we tell you about the imminent Episode Five?

On a tip from Ivor, Jesse and friends head to an abandoned temple holding mysterious treasures. Ambushed by former Ocelot Aiden and his crew, our heroes find themselves in an entirely new world: Sky City! As they explore, the Order finds that resources are at a premium, and nothing but 'The Void’ exists below the known world. When Aiden convinces Sky City’s ruler that the New Order of the Stone are up to no good, you’ll need to make some tough choices to clear your name, and keep Aiden from destroying an innocent world.

The cast of Minecraft: Story Mode also continues to expand as Jesse, played by Patton Oswalt (Ratatouille) or Catherine Taber (Star Wars Rebels), join Ivor, played by Paul Reubens (Pee-wee’s Big Holiday) and the gang on a trip to the skies. They’ll meet a growing cast that includes Sean Astin (The Goonies, The Lord of the Rings) as Reginald, the loyal Captain of the Guard, Jim Meskimen (Parks and Recreation) as the rebellious Milo, and Melissa Hutchison (The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series) as the Founder of Sky City.
