With Netflix taking over the world with its original programming and vast amount of TV shows and movies, you'd think that it would be content with the money it's making. But now it's ready to give games a try. Sources told TechRadar that Minecraft: Story Mode will appear in a five-part episodic form and Netflix confirmed to them that the game will appear "in an adapted form".
"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", a rep for Telltale said in an email.
But what's interesting here is a collaboration that could be emerging because of the deal. Stranger Things: The Game is available for free and is heavily influenced by retro games from the 80s like The Legend of Zelda.

Gameplay looks to be rather simple with this version. According to the anonymous source, gamers will be able to play these Netflix games using any standard television remote that has directional inputs.
We should not that they don't specifically say this is a game, and it is a promotional item so it may be something quite short.
However, this does not mean Netflix is adding games to its platform. Reports suggest a partnership between Telltale and Netflix could be announced "any day".
"And for us, we're looking at that". Expect it to arrive as previous Telltale projects have, which is to say most likely on console, PC, and mobile devices. The test launch for this initiative will be Minecraft: Story Mode Season 1, which should arrive this Fall.
