Telltale Are Working On A Stranger Things Project

They're moving Minecraft: Story Mode to Netflix. Furthermore, Netflix has already dabbled in this field with interactive adventures like Puss in Book and Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile, both of which are aimed at a younger audience and allow kids to choose how they want the story to play out.

The company then confirmed that they are now developing a game based on Stranger Things - though wider details about the game are still scarce at the moment, with console compatibility and release dates yet to be confirmed. It confirmed that the company plans to launch an interactive five-episode version of Netflix: Story Mode by fall of this year. "There's a broad spectrum of entertainment available today", the company said.

Update, 3:45PM ET: Telltale has confirmed its new partnership with Netflix as well as a forthcoming Stranger Things game for consoles and PCs.

Telltale Games titles are ideal for the Netflix platform, as most of the games don't require much interaction from the player other than making text choices and moving a character from one part of the story to the other. That could be why its critically acclaimed adaptations of "The Walking Dead" and "Game of Thrones" have worked in the past, and why a "Stranger Things" adaptation sounds like a good fit. This role will likely be pivotal in bringing more interactive experiences to the platform in the future, and potentially lead to more Netflix-branded game crossovers. And more importantly (I think, anyway), a new game based on the hit Netflix series Stranger Things series is also in the works. "Games have become increasingly cinematic, but we view this as interactive narrative storytelling on our service".

While Telltale and others consider "Minecraft: Story Mode" to be a type of game, Netflix does not. Now, according to TechRadar, it's getting into the gaming business. This would include Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, and even smart televisions with a built in Netflix app. Chromecast might be possible if the user could input commands from their device. No running, jumping, shooting, or climbing that would necessitate an actual video game controller. Reports suggest a partnership between Telltale and Netflix could be announced "any day".
