  • Evidence of Episode 2 activity on the Steam database.

October 8th (prior to Episode 1 release)

  • During a demo preview with FamilyGamerTV, Job Stauffer alluded that Episode 2 would be out "before Thanksgiving" (which falls on Nov 26 in America)
    (See 6:05 during this video: ) He also states they hope to aim for quicker releases for Minecraft episodes with the possibility of "multiple episodes" by the end of the year.

  • He actually says soon multiple times after he says "before Thanksgiving" in the video so HA

    ...However, "before Thanksgiving" does not lack data.

  • For perspective, assuming Telltale is able to get the episode released the week of Thanksgiving, that would basically be a six week difference. If they release the episode the week before Thanksgiving, we're looking at a 5 week difference.

  • If the second episode comes out this quickly, I wonder if the last one will come out even quicker.

    Does anyone else think Episode Ones title is a bit cliché?

  • I guess they don't have to worry about a second series until Michonne starts.

  • Nah. It's a bit obvious, but it does its job. What would you have called it?

    The name is a reference to Minecrafts original name.

    When he first started working on Minecraft, Notch had planned for it to just be a small project. For instance, when Notch uploaded the first YouTube video of Minecraft on May 13, 2009, he had not yet decided on a name, and simply referred to it as a "cave game". The name "Minecraft: Order of the Stone" (a reference to Order of the Stick, a web comic and "one of the best things on the internet" was announced the next day (from a suggestion a TIGSource forums user gave in an IRC chat, and then shortly after, it was shortened to "Minecraft" as it was much simpler and to prevent people from confusing it with Order of the Stick. The game was finally released for an "early private singleplayer alpha" on May 16, 2009.

    TOO SOON!!

    Job stated that they are aiming to release episode 2 "before thanksgiving" which is on November 26th so now seems about the right time to start adding files.

    Also,Red Brass Kitten?

    I'm guessing that they are using that as some sort of code name.

    I know,I'm just saying the episode is releasing sooner than I expected,ep2 is the one that usually takes forever to release.

    Yeah,but what're they referencing with it?

    i'm not sure, maybe it's a reference to something in their office or a inside inside joke.

  • Before thanksgiving? That's actually quite fast.

  • After playing the first episode, I'm very much looking forward to Episode 2, can't wait.

  • Does anybody have a link to the crowd play because I can't find one anywhere. I would love to check it out.

    Dammit Telltale, why does Minecraft get Ep 2 so soon?! Finish TFTB and GoT first :(

    Eh, Episode 1 was alright. 6 or 7/10 maybe. The visuals were okay. I like the color palette and general feel of the graphics, but some of the animations were a bit clunky. The story is quite cheesy as well, but maybe that's a design choice or something, I dunno.

    The thing that really irks me though is the voiceacting and script. I found it really cringeworthy and somewhat forced, but overall the episode was decent.

  • so for non americans when is thanksgiving?

  • 26th November

  • The first episode waiting thread does; look for the link under the Key Art that mentions the Live Premiere for Episode 1.

  • Seeing as how past names were from in game references, I'm surprised they didn't go with Endercon or Porkchop. :P

    They do use "endercon" and "endermen" for their branches :P

  • I just realised something.

    Lukas is wearing a different outfit in the promo image than the one he ends up wearing in the first episode.

    I'm guessing in a future episode he is going to ditch his leather jacket and get a hat? :o

  • edited October 2015

    His face is different a little bit too (and his hair), but I think they have redesigned his model. Althought that would be interesting that he and his clothes change through the story.

  • Hmm, odd. I'll update the thread to remove the link when I can.
