E3 2018: Telltale Working On Stranger Things As Minecraft Heads To Netflix

Minecraft Story Mode 2

According to the anonymous source, gamers will be able to play these Netflix games using any standard television remote that has directional inputs.

A Netflix spokesperson later reached out to Mashable with further clarification. "We can confirm Minecraft: Story Mode is a licensed 5-episode interactive narrative series coming to our service this fall".

In regard to both projects, Telltale Games stated that "our partnership with Netflix is something we're incredibly proud of", and while the studio has not released any other details regarding its collaboration with Netflix, the studio said it will "reveal details on these projects later in the year". It is more high-profile than the titles that precede it there, thanks entirely to the Telltale connection.

Telltale's Stranger Things project, meanwhile, is part of Netflix's marketing and promotion efforts, but will not be on the Netflix service.

But in a newly released interview, Haddish told everyone to calm down, and she understands why her co-star was so annoyed. I used to visit my friend Anna there, and it got to a point where I was calling the police officers by name.

Netflix is now clarifying that it's not a "game", exactly, it's an interactive story. "There's a broad spectrum of entertainment available today", the company explained. "Games have become increasingly cinematic, but unlike gaming, there's no winners or losers in these types of stories, and we view it as interactive narrative storytelling on our service". They're moving Minecraft: Story Mode to Netflix.

Sources claim that a playable demo has been floating around for at least a year, and that an official announcement from either Netflix or Telltale Games "could happen any day". "A lot of boxes of many different varieties in homes-millions and millions of homes across America, where people don't even think game-playing is possible on them, but maybe they're watching stories or consuming narrative-driven content or streaming it". What it's planning with Story Mode is a long way off from a service like PlayStation Now, which streams games out of a data center filled with powerful computers.

The partnership with Telltale is considered a logical step, given that the company's games usually only require the player to select from dialogue options or move with the aid of a cursor to a specific on-screen location.

But such controls wouldn't be as accurate or responsive as those on a gamepad or touchscreen, so the version of Minecraft coming to Netflix will reportedly be delivered as video files.
