The acquisition of Minecraft developer Mojang by Microsoft for $2.5 billion took everyone by surprise and caused some debate as to whether or not the purchase was worth it for Microsoft. However, the surprise doesn’t stop there as a new game has been announced. Mojang has revealed that Telltale Games is developing Minecraft: Story Mode in collaboration with the Swedish developer and members of the Minecraft community.
Claptrap and his posse return in Telltale's new project
Can't get enough Borderlands or Telltale Games? You're in luck! An announcement from Spike TV's VGX awards reveals Tales from the Borderlands, Telltale Games' latest game taking place in the Borderlands universe.
To celebrate "Talk Like a Pirate Day," Telltale Games gave away free copies of Tales of Monkey Island: Episode One to gamers and scurvy landlubbers alike. But don't worry if you missed out on your chance to reap all the rewards of piracy without crossing moral (and legal) lines, because Telltale is giving you another chance to become a swashbuckler without spending all of your grog money.
The freebie offer has come and gone, but from now until midnight (Pacific Time) on Sunday, October 25, Telltale Games is slashing the price on the full first season of Tales of Monkey Island by $10. For 25 bucks, you'll have access to all five episodes, which breaks down to $5 a pop. As a bonus, Telltale says season purchases are eligible to receive a collector's CD, made available at the end of the season, for the cost of shipping
Chapters One through Three are available to play now, with the remaining episodes "coming soon."
Swashbuckling, high-seas adventure, and scurvy! Man, what doesn’t rock about being a pirate? Oh, right: the stealing. That’s kind of a no-no. But if you’d like to reap all the rewards of theft without any of the consequences, Telltale Games has a deal for you.
Simply continue living until September 19th (that’s national Talk Like a Pirate Day, for you non-swashbuckling types) and you’ll be qualified to receive a free copy of Tales of Monkey Island: Episode One – in its entirety! Just click over to this website between 12:01 am GMT, Sept. 19 and midnight PST, Sept. 19 to grab your copy.
Convenient timing on Telltale’s part, too. Episode Three was recently pegged for a September 29 release date, and we imagine this deal will reel in more than a few new series buyers. It’s almost like someone planned it to work out this way or something…
