This project, however, won't release on Netflix to stream (at least for the time being) and is instead being worked on as proper Telltale experience that we've grown accustomed to. 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.

Along with this deal between the two companies, Telltale is also reportedly developing a Stranger Things game.

In addition, Telltale also confirmed that the studio will be bringing a five-episode "interactive" version of Minecraft: Story Mode to Netflix this fall. There's a broad spectrum of entertainment available today. Meanwhile, the "Stranger Things" game will be launched on the Telltale platform "at a later date", per a Netflix representative. Stranger Things was confirmed as a separate entity, coming to traditional gaming platforms like the company's previous works. TechRadar reports that the streaming company has teamed up with Telltale Games (known for their point-and-click adaptations of The Walking Dead, Batman, and The Wolf Among Us) to distribute some of their games on Netflix this year.

However, the bigger news and one that Netflix probably shouldn't have commented on just yet, is that Telltale are working on a project based on the hit TV show Stranger Things.

Netflix eventually reached out to TechRadar to confirm that while it has entered a partnership with Telltale to begin streaming games, the titles we'll see offered through its service won't really resemble the Telltale games we're used to. Despite all this, Netflix has stressed that they are not venturing into the gaming industry themselves.

Sources tell TechRadar that the games will be delivered to Netflix subscribers as video files which will be capable of accepting commands from any remote with directional and select buttons.

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

Netflix and Telltale Games have formed a partnership with all kinds of exciting implications. As a result of this, Telltale has first crack at a Stranger Things video game that should be available in the not-too-distant future.
