Story Mode is coming to Netflix this fall and Telltale will publish a game based on Stranger Things for consoles and PC at a later date.

Simmer down, everyone. Netflix isn't about to stream video games. According to the anonymous source, gamers will be able to play these Netflix games using any standard television remote that has directional inputs. The new series will be the latest addition to its growing collection of interactive stories, which include kid-friendly titles like "Stretch Armstrong: The Breakout", "Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale", and "Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile".

Updated: Netflix is gearing up to launch a game based on its popular "Stranger Things" original series under a deal with Telltale Games, and it will roll out another basic interactive game - "Minecraft: Story Mode", more akin to a playable TV show - from the studio. 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".

As TechRadar points out, Telltale has expressed interest in bringing its games to Netflix in the past, so this doesn't come completely out of left field.

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

Melting of Antarctica is speeding up, worrying scientists
Scientists can't see the future, but they do fear continuing and even worsening losses. "I think we should be anxious ". Prior to 2012 the continent was losing ice at a rate of around 76 billion tonnes per year.

"Our partnership with Netflix is something we're incredibly proud of, and while we don't have anything more to share right now, we're excited to reveal details on these projects later in the year".

Sources say that playable demos of the experience have been in existence for at least the past year, and that an announcement of the partnership "could happen any day". The first of these games is Minecraft: Story Mode. Considering that many of Telltale's games revolve around choosing between dialogue options or pointing the cursor somewhere to tell your character where to go. It's likely that both the partnership and new game could be announced simultaneously.

Less information is available about Stranger Things' game adaptation.

Our statement ended with a final note laying out how Netflix views the broader landscape of interactive entertainment, video games, and how the difference between the two defines the company's approach to embracing one but not the other.
