E3 2018: Telltale Working On Stranger Things As Minecraft Heads To Netflix

"We're delighted by the response we're seeing to the idea of Minecraft: Story Mode coming to Netflix in the fall as an interactive adventure, and separately, we're thrilled to confirm that Telltale is developing a game based on Stranger Things that we'll publish to consoles and computers at a later date".

Telltale's interactive fare is well suited to Netflix's streaming service. Each episode will stream as a video file, and you'll be able control them using any remote equipped with a directional pad and select buttons.

Updated: Netflix is gearing up to launch a game based on its popular "Stranger Things" original series under a deal with Telltale Games, and it will roll out another basic interactive game - "Minecraft: Story Mode", more akin to a playable TV show - from the studio.

Netflix has commissioned a version of Minecraft: Story Mode for it's platform.

Telltale's Stranger Things project, meanwhile, is part of Netflix's marketing and promotion efforts, but will not be on the Netflix service. 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. If you've seen programs like Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale, you might already be familiar with how this will go down. 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. TechRadar's sources suggested that an announcement of the partnership "could happen any day".

Update: Netflix reached out to us with more specifics, pointing out that it has no intention to get into the "gaming" industry outright, stating that it does acknowledge their increasingly cinematic nature.

Details are still emerging, but Telltale said that it is now working on the Stranger Things game, which will be coming to consoles and PC.

Netflix is now clarifying that it's not a "game", exactly, it's an interactive story. It's likely that both the partnership and new game could be announced simultaneously.

Sources familiar with the matter share that the games made available for streaming will initially be dialogue-driven, meaning that gamers will advance through the storyline by selecting options proposed via text.
