Telltale confirmed it plans to take gamers on an interactive trip to the Upside Down, but declined to provide more detail. The game developer also will adapt Minecraft: Story Mode as a five-part adventure will be available on Netflix later this year.
“Were delighted by the response were seeing to the idea of Minecraft: Story Mode coming to Netflix in the fall as an interactive adventure,” the company said, in a statement to Deadline. “And separately, were thrilled to confirm that Telltale is developing a game based on Stranger Things that well publish to consoles and computers at a later date.”
The technology site TechRadar was the first to report the collaboration.
Telltales games are well suited to Netflixs streaming service, because they dont require a game console or other traditional video game hardware to play. Instead, users navigate through the story with a remote control, choosing among simple commands and dialogue choices.
Netflix has dabbled in the interactive space before.
Last summer, it launched a show called Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale, in which viewers chose the next chapter in their adventure. Netflix also is working on a series called Stretch Armstrong: The Breakout.
