There’s the games, the movie and now, according to Mojang, the novel with Minecraft coming to the written page thanks to World War Z scribe Max Brooks. 

Titled ‘Minecraft: The Island’, the new book is said to be in the vein of Robinson Crusoe, “only madder”.

Mojang’s Marsh Davies said the story was about a “hero stranded in an unfamiliar land, with unfamiliar rules, learning to survive against tremendous odds“.

I’ve peeked at an early draft and it’s entirely amazing, just as we knew it would be,” he added.

No word on a release date yet but it is believed to be the first in a series of books based on the popular computer game.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
