Minecraft: Story Mode is Coming to Netflix, But Not as a Game

Telltale is also reportedly making a Stranger Things game, but it won't be on Netflix.

Telltale Games' projects are pretty accessible for all sorts of players, both mechanically and in the sense that its games are available on virtually every platform imaginable. Telltale pretty much owns the beat of the choose your own adventure-inspired genre of story-driven games. And Telltale is about to be on one more platform, and an unexpected one at that. TechRadar reported earlier today of two new Netflix-related partnerships for Telltale's future, including an adapted interactive show and a new adaptation for a Netflix show.

Minecraft: Story Mode, Telltale's interactive series based on Minecraft, will be coming to Netflix. It won't play exactly the same as its video game counterpart, as CNET clarifies. Instead, it will play similar to Netflix's other interactive shows Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale and Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile, which allows viewers to choose the direction the story will go. Minecraft: Story Mode on Netflix will be just a five-episode adaptation of its game counterpart.

TechRadar also reports that a new Telltale project is in development of the Netflix series Stranger Things. The report notes that Telltale Games' Stranger Things project will take place in the "Stranger Things universe," and it was originally planned to launch alongside season two of the show, which obviously didn't quite happen. The Stranger Things adaptation will be a traditional game experience like Telltale's past games and won't appear on Netflix, according to CNET.

Minecraft: Story Mode's second season concluded in December 2017. Telltale Games recently announced a delay for its highly anticipated follow-up to season one of The Wolf Among Us, which is aiming for release now in 2019.

    Telltale's cut from Netflix is probably bigger than from YouTube or Twitch. I wouldn't be surprised to see more branching official playthrough videos showing up on video platforms like this.
