‘Minecraft: Story Mode’ will become a Netflix 'interactive story'

Sources told TechRadar that Minecraft: Story Mode will appear in a five-part episodic form and Netflix confirmed to them that the game will appear "in an adapted form".

A final piece of evidence regarding the existence of such a concoction is this listing for a job over at Netflix, with one of the requirements being that the candidate "use games as a marketing tactic to capture demand and delight our member community (ex: Stranger Things: The Game)".

Original article (06/13) at 12:02 p.m. CT: An anonymous source leaked some info to TechRadar about a huge new feature coming to Netflix: streaming video games.

"There's a broad spectrum of entertainment available today", a Netflix rep said. While services like PlayStation Now have seen some success, interactive adventure games are much better suited to the format. "The Netflix version of Minecraft: Story Mode will be delivered via video files and will accept commands via any remote equipped with directional and select buttons".

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.

The representative also said the Stranger Things project would live on Telltale's platform and not on Netflix's service.

Back in December we reported on the possibility of Netflix offering branching path content, and had even pointed to Telltale's The Walking Dead or Game of Thrones as ideal examples of limited interaction experiences that could fit with Netflix's technology.

At the moment however, no deal between Netflix and Telltale Games has been made official, though the sources say that an announcement of such a partnership is imminent.

Forward-looking: Netflix is expanding it's library to interactive movies and games that increase viewer engagement create a new form of consumable media.

That feeling of euphoria when you watch episodes of your favorite show can quickly fade when you sit through the intro, time after time. You're not relaxed, you're not leaning forward on the edge of your seat. Thus, the idea of Netflix hosting streaming games is not exactly the biggest news ever, but it does show that Netflix is ready to expand into new media territory.

Netflix and Telltale Games have formed a partnership with all kinds of exciting implications.

The deal could potentially raise eyebrows with Telltale's other content collaborators, notably HBO, a longtime partner of the developer for its Game of Thrones game. No running, jumping, shooting, or climbing that would necessitate an actual video game controller.
