"We can confirm Minecraft: Story Mode is a licensed 5-episode interactive narrative series coming to our service this fall".

Telltale's interactive fare is well suited to Netflix's streaming service. According to the anonymous source, gamers will be able to play these Netflix games using any standard television remote that has directional inputs.

The "Minecraft" title is similar to Netflix's choose-your-own-adventure-style interactive shows for kids: "Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale" and "Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile".

Developer Telltale Games confirmed during E3 2018 that the studio is now at work on a few projects in conjunction with Netflix, with the first being a new episodic game series based around Stranger Things, the network's acclaimed sci-fi drama series that first debuted in 2016, and most recently released its second season last fall.

Telltale Games titles are flawless for the Netflix platform, as most of the games don't require much interaction from the player other than making text choices and moving a character from one part of the story to the other. The Netflix rep noted that the game is not going to be available on the streaming platform, and is instead "part of our marketing and title promotion efforts". "There's a broad spectrum of entertainment available today".

Netflix responded, "We don't have any plans to get into gaming. Games have become increasingly cinematic, but we view this as interactive narrative storytelling on our service".

Telltale has mentioned wanting to work with the streaming service in the past on several occasions, and it appears that request has finally come to fruition.

We can all stop asking who will be the first to launch "the Netflix of games".

As far as when the partnership will be announced, the article notes that it "could happen any day", though an E3 debut may not be happening since we're so late in the show anyway. The first of these games is Minecraft: Story Mode. However, sources have confirmed that HBO was among the companies approached when the idea was conceived and turned Telltale down, saying they'd rather wait and see how the technology developed. "It's an extension of our other interactive stories".

Also under the deal, Telltale is producing a game based on "Stranger Things" for consoles and PCs. Apparently a new Stranger Things/Minecraft game should be happening soon.
