Announced this morning, Mojang, the makers of Minecraft, are teaming up with the wizards over at Telltale Games to produce a narrative based in the Minecraft world. It will be tastefully titled Minecraft: Story Mode. From Mojang’s experience, players want stories inside of their world, which is the basis for this idea of a collaboration. Mojang will provide the world, while Telltale will provide the story to go with it.
Due out sometime in 2015, it will be released in episodes, just like every other Telltale title. As a reminder, Telltale is the studio behind the new Game of Thrones title on Android, as well as the super popular The Walking Dead series of games. (more…)

It has been a little over a year since the original Dumb Ways to Die landed on Google Play, but we are very happy to see that Dumb Ways to Die 2: The Games, has reached our platform. The original, albeit a bit repetitive, was an amazing game. Inside that title, there are many mini puzzles which tested your quickness, in a mission to save little creatures from killing themselves.
The sequel, Dumb Ways to Die 2, is a toast to classic, but with a new twist. In the game, you are shown a larger world, each with its own set of challenges. While you are still trying to save little dudes from committing suicide, the puzzles seem more thought out, while still being very difficult at times. (more…)
