Does anyone out there like Unofficial Minecraft fiction? Since working on Minecraft Story Mode at Telltale Games, I’ve been reading a lot of this stuff to see what kids are into — the books are EVERYWHERE, and supposedly sell quite well.
So I thought I’d share this really cool one – the first in a series, that works for lovers of Minecraft AND people who don’t know anything about it.
It’s got pirates, adventure, and rumor has it NINJAS will show up. All fun stuff 🙂
Watch PT Hylton talk about the making of these:
And me talking about why I love them:
Pirates on a treasure hunt. An ancient weapon lost long ago. One girl determined to save us all.
Trish never saw herself as a hero. She lives in a quiet village and spends most of her time happily crafting. But when a gang of pirates throws her life upside down while searching for a legendary weapon called The Blade of the Sea, she ventures outside of the safety of her village to find it before they do.
With only her wits and crafting skills to help her, Trish fights zombies and creepers, explores secret temples, battles pirates, and solves mind-boggling puzzles. Even after befriending a wolf, she’s in way over her head. She soon learns that the Blade of the Sea protects an even bigger secret. According to legend, it is the key to an ancient treasure with the power bring the world to its knees.
Fans of the Elementia Chronicles and the Gameknight999 series will be drawn to Jesse Nethermind’s epic tale of treasure hunts, pirates, ninjas, and the quest for a magical place rumored to contain the ultimate power. Filled with action, humor, and monsters galore, The Blade of the Sea is the perfect adventure story for Minecraft fans!
