Minecraft: Story Mode – Episode One is free on Steam for a limited time

Minecraft: Story Mode

Update November 24: Yet more proof that you should never buy the first episode of a Telltale game, Minecraft: Story Mode’s first episode is free once more, this time on Steam.

Join Jesse and their friends as they take a trip across the Overworld, through the Nether, to the End, and beyond, though probably not all of that in the first episode, eh? 

For more blockbusting, here’s our list of the best Minecraft seeds.

So if you’ve been holding off picking it up, grab it now on Steam while it’s free. The rest of the series is currently 50% off if you enjoy it, too.
