It’s often said that honesty is the best policy. So, honestly, I don’t think anyone has ever wondered why Minecraft, the world’s most popular PC game, doesn’t have a story. Still, Mojang and new owner Microsoft decided to create one anyway. A new interview reveals their motivation behind Minecraft Story Mode.

Technology website The Verge fills readers in on how Minecraft Story Mode, came to be a real thing in an interview out today. Currently in production by Telltale Games, Minecraft Story Mode uses the design and characters from the Minecraft sandbox games, but adds tangible narrative. Think Lego Movie and you’ve got the right idea. Microsoft and Telltale see this title is a new branch of the Minecraft tree it seems. It’ll co-exist with the sandbox version of the game that millions already know and love. Minecraft Story Mode is about Jesse as he looks for the Order of the Stone and the Ender Dragon.

Minecraft Story Mode is coming to the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, iPhone, Android, Mac and Windows sometime this year. Microsoft hasn’t said how much the episodic story will cost users in total. Minecraft lovers find themselves in a very busy period. Besides Minecraft Story Mode, Mojang just released Minecraft Windows 10 Edition. Right now it’s in beta.
