TellTale Games is teaming up with Netflix to produce a video game spin off of their hit series Stranger Things.
Not only this, but it's reported that Netflix will also showcase TellTale's Minecraft: Story Mode on their streaming service.
It was suggested that the Stranger Things adaptation would also be following the same suit, as an exclusive, but the streaming giant has now confirmed that it will allow for it to be a more conventional gaming release.
This isn't new territory for Netflix, however, as they have previously used interactive entertainment on their service. Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile and Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale allowed users to choose their own adventure by using their remote to guide their way through the selected children's TV show.
Although these weren't actual games, these new releases will follow a similar method. TellTale's Minecraft game will reportedly let players use the select and directional buttons on their compatible remote control, which could well be an Xbox, PS4, or similar pad if the app is being played through their console.
It will be interesting to see how far Netflix delves into the gaming world and it would definitely make that monthly fee well worth the payment, if you don't think it is already.
