Telltale Games are coming to Netflix, including a Stranger Things game

TechRadar reports that the streaming company has teamed up with Telltale Games (known for their point-and-click adaptations of The Walking Dead, Batman, and The Wolf Among Us) to distribute some of their games on Netflix this year. Sources told TechRadar that Minecraft: Story Mode will appear in a five-part episodic form and Netflix confirmed to them that the game will appear "in an adapted form".

Separately, we've learned of a new Telltale Games project based on Netflix's hit series Stranger Things - though no release window or additional details were provided.

One thing's for sure: Telltale's Stranger Things effort isn't now planned to be a part of Netflix's game streaming efforts, TechRadar says. Instead of a traditional game setup, Minecraft "will be delivered via video files and will accept commands via any remote equipped with directional and select buttons".

Netflix and Telltale Games have formed a partnership with all kinds of exciting implications.

Several sources say a technical demo already exists.

Minecraft Story Mode

It seems as though this has always been in the works, considering that Netflix itself launched a free-to-playStranger Things: The Game to promote Season 2 in October past year.

The Minecraft project comes on the heels of Netflix's launch last summer of Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale, in which viewers chose the next chapter in their adventure.

Is Netflix Going To Be A Gaming Company Now? Reportedly, the game was originally meant to accompany the show's second season, but plans were delayed. It's simply taking advantage of the inherent movie-like qualities of video games. Netflix told TechRadar that it isn't getting into the games business, and views these interactive adventures as something different, so don't expect to see a Netflix game studio pop up anytime soon.

Minecraft: Story Mode was first released in 2015. Additionally, according to an interview with PCGamer, Telltale has been interested in collaborating with the streaming service for some time. However, more exciting than anything is the idea that Netflix is venturing further into spaces not typically occupied by video platforms.
