Stranger Things Game In The Works, As Minecraft: Story Mode Comes To Netflix

Telltale Games is adapting the popular science-fiction series Stranger Things as a video game, and working with Netflix to bring more interactive experiences to the streaming service.

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.
