Minecraft: Story Mode is coming to Netflix

Telltale nabs yet another big license, is working on a Stranger Things game

"It's an extension of our other interactive stories we have on our service like Stretch Armstrong: The Breakout, Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale and Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile".

With that in mind, we can assume the Stranger Things game will follow a similar model as previous Telltale games.

The company announced a year ago it would begin experimenting with a new way to stream video, through "choose your own adventure"-style stories that allow viewers to pick what happens next".

It's the sort of thing that would have never been possible through traditional linear TV, but is enabled through an online platform like Netflix.

The company confirms that "Minecraft: Story Mode" is a licensed 5-episode interactive narrative series that will be coming to its service this fall, in partnership with Telltale. The first title is likely to be Minecraft: Story Mode, which first launched on PC and console in 2015. "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", Telltale told Deadline. Well, would you believe.

The technology site TechRadar was the first to report the collaboration. "There's a broad spectrum of entertainment available today", the company said. "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".

Separately, we've learned of a new Telltale Games project based on Netflix's hit series Stranger Things - though no release window or additional details were provided.

After having worked on titles based around series far and wide involving major franchises like The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and more, Telltale Games has given a new look into what lies ahead for the studio outside of its current projects, and it looks like things are about to get odd. For example, it launched a standalone "Orange is the New Black" app back in 2014, and when it was promoting the new season of "Arrested Development", it introduced a "FakeBlock" app. That game involved the character of Chief Hopper (played on Stranger Things by David Harbour) trying to find the young main characters of the show. In other words, who will be "the Netflix of video games"? "(Though, from the sounds of it, numerous battle sequences will be cut from the final product, )" the article notes. This simplified command is a flawless pairing for Telltale's slate of games, as they often only require the player to select from dialogue options or move the cursor to a specific location on the screen.
