Many mobile games get lucky enough to have their own novels written such as the popular Infinity Blade. Today, Minecraft is witnessing its first official novel written by Max Brooks. Minecraft: The Island tells the story of a lonely castaway which ends up on the beach of a world that’s made of blocks. The story delves into survival such as finding food, crafting, and discovery. The novel’s description adds that it has been written similarly to iconic adventures like Treasure Island.
It clearly departs from the worldview that Telltale Games introduced in their Minecraft: Story Mode Series. However, the author insists that it is not the Minecraft story but a Minecraft story. You can click here to read some parts of the novel and judge for yourself whether it lives up to the hype.
