Somehow, for better or for worse, Telltale is going to bring their full adventure game development powers to the world of Minecraft. That’s about all we know so far, but that may change this weekend. From Touch Arcade:
One of Telltale’s more interesting upcoming projects is Minecraft Story Mode, their narrative adventure game that’s set in the Minecraft [$6.99] universe. We don’t quite know what to expect from this, but with Minecon this weekend in London, Telltale is teasing that we’ll be hearing something this weekend at Minecon.

The excellent, brutal spacefaring roguelike-ish game Out There just got a big update that you’re gonna want to check out. From Touch Arcade:
In July of last year we learned that Mi Clos Studios’ excellent (and punishing!) roguelike/gamebook/strategy/space adventure Out There [$3.99] would be getting a huge expansion dubbed the Omega Edition which revamped much of the artwork and added lots of new features to the game. Us mobile gamers had to watch in anguish as our desktop gaming counterparts received the Omega Edition of Out There back in April. However, that anguish ends today as just moments ago the iOS version has received theOmega Edition update as well.
