Telltale And Netflix Partnership To Bring Stranger Things and Minecraft Game Series

In a series of tweets, Telltale Games revealed today that they are entering into a partnership with Netflix to produce a series of interactive narratives, to be hosted on the streaming platform.

Minecraft: Story Mode, is the first title to be published, coming to Netflix as soon as this fall. This is an adaptation of Telltale’s existing Minecraft: Story Mode game, which is published for almost all available platforms, including Android, iOS and Apple TV. The current game on Apple TV is controlled by television remotes’ directional and select buttons, so we can assume that the Netflix version would follow a similar format, with points of decision-making combined with cutscenes.

Apart from Minecraft, an interactive series for the Netflix hit, Stranger Things, is now in the works. Fans of Stranger Things, prepare to explore the world of the Upside Down is a more interactive experience than ever before! With Telltale’s experience in crafting amazing narrative-based games such as Tales From The Borderlands and The Walking Dead, we have high hopes for this new format and game release.

“There’s a broad spectrum of entertainment available today,” a Netflix spokesperson comments. “Games have become increasingly cinematic, but we view this as interactive narrative storytelling on our service.”

Despite Netflix’s huge involvement in this partnership, a representative was quick to say the company does not “have any plans to get into gaming”.
