Well, it turns out that the one broaching the Netflix-style streaming service for video games is none other than. The first title is likely to be Minecraft: Story Mode, which first launched on PC and console in 2015. Story Mode" will be available on the streaming giant, it's an "interactive narrative" along the lines of recent Netflix experiments like "Stretch Armstrong: "The Breakout".
After having worked on titles based around series far and wide involving major franchises like The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and more, Telltale Games has given a new look into what lies ahead for the studio outside of its current projects, and it looks like things are about to get unusual.
Less information is available about Stranger Things' game adaptation.
"We don't have any plans to get into gaming". Techradar published a rumour that the game was in the works and Netflix posted a clarification.
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. The company was adamant that it doesn't consider an interactive offering to be a game, but rather an extension of the cinematic experience.
Meanwhile, the other gaming project TechRadar had uncovered - a game related to the Netflix hit "Stranger Things" - is something that will launch in Telltale's platform at a later date, Netflix says. This would include Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, and even smart televisions with a built in Netflix app. Chromecast might be possible if the user could input commands from their device. When you're playing a video game, and you're actively engaged with a shooter, you're on the very edge of your seat sort of constantly.
The alleged joint partnership between Telltale and Netflix raises some eyebrows considering Telltale has an existing partnership with HBO - yet another prime rival of Netflix.
The source has stated that playable demos have been in existence for almost a year, meaning that the announcement of a partnership may occur any day.
