Netflix May Soon Offer Video Game Streaming

Telltale games has been making Minecraft Story Mode since 2015.                  Telltale Games

When TechRadar asked how the Netflix service will function, their sources pointed to the Amazon Fire TV platform, which stands as an ecosystem that allows users to play various game series, including The Wolf Among Us, The Walking Dead, and Minecraft: Story Mode.

Netflix's take on streaming games apparently involves remaking them on some level so they can play nice with the service. Each episode will stream as a video file, and you'll be able control them using any remote equipped with a directional pad and select buttons.

Netflix has confirmed that a Telltale Stranger Things game is in the works.

A Netflix representative said a five-part Minecraft: Story Mode adaptation would be coming to its service in the fall.

Forward-looking: Netflix is expanding it's library to interactive movies and games that increase viewer engagement create a new form of consumable media. Lastly, Netflix said it has no plans to get into gaming. Depending on how much is cut out from the experience it might not end up looking different than some of the choose-your-own-experience titles Netflix already has on its service.

Strom didn't expect to go viral, but she's not surprised. "It did fit, but it didn't want to come back out". There's no word on who's going to foot the bill for the impromptu modification to the truck's exhaust pipe.

Sources say that playable demos of the experience have been in existence for at least the previous year, and that an announcement of the partnership "could happen any day".

The deal could potentially raise eyebrows with Telltale's other content collaborators, notably HBO, a longtime partner of the developer for its Game of Thrones game.

The company, which has worked on a property from just about every IP holder at this point, has confirmed that a Stranger Things game is in the works. "I think there is a lot of space for Telltale to move on to platforms that most people don't even really consider to be game systems", the company said. 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".

Our statement ended with a final note laying out how Netflix views the broader landscape of interactive entertainment, video games, and how the difference between the two defines the company's approach to embracing one but not the other.

Sources familiar with the matter share that the games made available for streaming will initially be dialogue-driven, meaning that gamers will advance through the storyline by selecting options proposed via text.
