  • Stranger Things Video Game Coming From Telltale Games

UPDATE: A Netflix spokesperson got in touch with us this afternoon to confirm that the streaming giant will launch "a licensed 5-episode interactive narrative series" called Minecraft: Story Mode this fall.

Netflix recently entered into a deal to bring video games to their streaming service.

Our initial impression was that Netflix's version of Minecraft: Story Mode would be delivered via video files and will accept commands via any remote equipped with directional and select buttons.

Along with this deal between the two companies, Telltale is also reportedly developing a Stranger Things game.

Netflix is teaming up with Telltale Games to adapt Minecraft: Story Mode into a five-part adventure in the fall.

"There's a broad spectrum of entertainment available today", a Netflix rep said.

While Telltale and others consider "Minecraft: Story Mode" to be a type of game, Netflix does not. This is an "interactive narrative story", an extension of the interactive videos that Netflix already has on its service.

Telltale has mentioned wanting to work with the streaming service in the past on several occasions, and it appears that request has finally come to fruition.

This partnership has yet to be formally announced by either company, but sources say that the announcement "could happen any day".

Less information is available about Stranger Things' game adaptation.

The technology site TechRadar was the first to report the collaboration.

"Our partnership with Netflix is something we're incredibly proud of, and while we don't have anything more to share right now, we're excited to reveal details on these projects later in the year". Considering that many of Telltale's games revolve around choosing between dialogue options or pointing the cursor somewhere to tell your character where to go.

As for the yet-unannounced Telltale Stranger Things game, sources say the game should have been ready for launch in the autumn of 2017, but was pushed back to a later date.

Netflix is now clarifying that it's not a "game", exactly, it's an interactive story. The game was rendered in a retro-pixel style that emulated the gameplay of The Legend of Zelda, because, as BonusXP put it, "Both [Stranger Things and Zelda] are about exploration, and it's kind of a mysterious fit that fit the mood of the show".
