"What [Netflix] was saying to us when we were working on developing this, they feel like when you're watching the show, you're sitting on the back 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.

The company is believed to have entered into a partnership with Telltale Games, which will bring simple adventure game experiences to Netflix. The first game that will be part of the deal is Minecraft: Story Mode. 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", the company told us in an email.

But what's interesting here is a collaboration that could be emerging because of the deal. That could be why its critically acclaimed adaptations of "The Walking Dead" and "Game of Thrones" have worked in the past, and why a "Stranger Things" adaptation sounds like a good fit.

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 unusual.

UPDATED June 13, 2018 4:05 p.m. ET with a Netflix statement further clarifying a number of inaccuracies from the original report. "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".

Based on how the system interprets that behavior, it may adjust how it arranges a match with a driver, the application said. And when the likelihood is comparatively low, the system may match riders "normally".

We should not that they don't specifically say this is a game, and it is a promotional item so it may be something quite short. Telltale's game mechanics would seem a flawless choice for adapting it for an interactive video.

Sources claim that a playable demo has been floating around for at least a year, and that an official announcement from either Netflix or Telltale Games "could happen any day".

Other companies could be looking into such on-demand entertainment as well, such as HBO.

We'll see if Telltale has anything to say on the show floor! The gaming publisher Telltale Games already offers "Minecraft: Story Mode" across other platforms, including Steam, game consoles, Google Play and the App Store.
