Telltale Games, Netflix team up for Stranger Things game and more!
The announcement was revealed after news broke on their upcoming Telltale/Netflix project Minecraft: Story Mode was revealed by Tech Radar. The 5-episode interactive series will come to the streaming service this fall. Telltale Games responded to the support with a reveal of their own:
“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. 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. 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.”
There is no news yet as to when they are aiming to release the Stranger Things game. The video game series will not go the route of Minecraft: Story Mode, but will possibly go back to the traditional chapter episodic format Telltale has become known for.
Stranger Things was created by The Duffer Brothers for Netflix and has taken the world by storm. The series has received 18 Emmy nominations last year (with five wins) and was honored with the 2017 SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, as well as the 2017 Norman Felton Producer of the Year Award in Episodic Television — Drama from the Producers Guild of America.
