Telltale Games revealed at E3 earlier this week that they are working in conjunction with Netflix to create a Stranger Things video game, as well as bringing their previous game Minecraft: Story Mode to the Netflix service.
We currently live in a time where television series have become far more popular than movies, for the most part anyway. Streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime mean that we can watch TV shows whenever and wherever we like, and even binge multiple episodes at a time if we so choose. There are also shows with the big budgets of Hollywood blockbusters like Game Of Thrones.
How would you like to go even further and step into some of your favorite TV shows in the form of video games? To become your favorite characters? History dictates that when it comes to turning a movie into a game, and vice versa, more often than not the results are not what fans envisioned. The Resident Evil movies aren't nearly as good as the games, and the more recent Assassin's Creed film did not live up to the hype.
Well, someone is about to give it a go with a very popular television series, and that someone is Telltale Games. The company announced at E3 this week that they are working in conjunction with Netflix on a couple of projects, and one of those projects is a Stranger Things video game. Telltale confirmed the news on Twitter but have revealed very little else about the project thus far.
Separately, we're thrilled to confirm that Telltale is developing a game based on Stranger Things that we'll publish to consoles and computers at a later date. (2/3)— Telltale Games @ E3 (@telltalegames) June 13, 2018
As you can see above, the only other information divulged at this point is that the game will be available on both consoles and computers. Whether we will literally take control of the likes of Eleven and Mike remains to be seen. Telltale also revealed that they are working with Netflix on Minecraft: Story Mode, an interactive adventure hopefully coming to the streaming service in the future.
If you want to know more about Minecraft: Story Mode or the Stranger Things video game, then we're afraid you're going to have to wait until later this year. That's when Telltale have said more details will be unveiled about both projects. They sound promising though. A Stranger Things game will mean being able to explore The Upside Down without the added danger of having to try and discover it yourselves.
