I know, not exactly what you expected from Minecraft: Story Mode
, right? The series has always straddled the line between poking fun at how death works in Minecraft
and the actual drama of it, but a murder mystery is kind of a shocking turn for this mostly-family-friendly series.
Don’t worry; it’s all handled tastefully and the intrigue is fun, even though the true identity of the killer is painfully obvious to anyone with even the slightest idea of how these kinds of stories work. And while some of it might have you groaning and yelling at how dumb the characters act, it’s still a welcome diversion from the same old bad guys and the same old locales.
