Stranger Things Video Game Coming From Telltale Games

Stranger Things Video Game Coming From Telltale Games

Indeed, Netflix will soon offer video games along with its existing catalogue of films and TV shows, say sources to TechRadar, and the first one to go up would be the five-parter Telltale series, Minecraft: Story Mode, which will be available later this year. Netflix announced that it's not necessarily getting into gaming but it is adding some streaming games to its service. According to the anonymous source, gamers will be able to play these Netflix games using any standard television remote that has directional inputs. "It's an extension of our other interactive stories we have on our service...the Stranger Things project is launching on the Telltale platform at a later date, not on the Netflix service".

As for what the Telltale games might look like though, sources told TechRadar to look to Amazon's Fire TV platform, where Telltale games like Minecraft: Story Mode, The Walking Dead, and The Wolf Among Us have already found a home, letting users play through the entire game with the Fire TV remote.

Forward-looking: Netflix is expanding it's library to interactive movies and games that increase viewer engagement create a new form of consumable media.

Update, 3:45PM ET: Telltale has confirmed its new partnership with Netflix as well as a forthcoming Stranger Things game for consoles and PCs.

While Telltale and others consider "Minecraft: Story Mode" to be a type of game, Netflix does not. But it looks like we're waiting to see who'll make the first move in this bold new direction. Depending on how much is cut out from the experience it might not end up looking different than some of the choose-your-own-experience titles Netflix already has on its service.


Sources claim that a playable demo has been floating around for at least a year, and that an official announcement from either Netflix or Telltale Games "could happen any day".

"We don't have any plans to get into gaming", a Netflix spokesperson said, in response to TechRadar's report.

Back in December we reported on the possibility of Netflix offering branching path content, and had even pointed to Telltale's The Walking Dead or Game of Thrones as ideal examples of limited interaction experiences that could fit with Netflix's technology.

We've reached out to Netflix and Telltale. Stranger Things: The Game is available for free and is heavily influenced by retro games from the 80s like The Legend of Zelda.
