Netflix Launches Mobile Gaming With Two 'Stranger Things' Titles

Netflix has debuted its first mobile game titles to its global subscribers on Android, Netflix’s VP of Game Development Mike Verdu announced on Tuesday.

The inaugural lineup includes two Stranger Things titles — Stranger Things: 1984 and Stranger Things 3: The Game — which first arrived for Android users exclusively in Poland in August. Additional games available to the platform’s subscribers include Shooting Hoops (Frosty Pop), Card Blast (Amuzo & Rogue Games) and Teeter Up (Frosty Pop).

“Whether you’re craving a casual game you can start from scratch or an immersive experience that lets you dig deeper into your favorite stories, we want to begin to build a library of games that offers something for everyone,” Verdu said in a blog post. “We’re in the early days of creating a great gaming experience, and we’re excited to take you on this journey with us.”

Users who open the Netflix app on their mobile Android devices will now see a designated games tab where they will be able to click on games to download and play. Each game will automatically be playable in the language that the user has set on their Netflix account; however, the language will default to English if the user’s chosen language is not yet available in Netflix’s games.

The gaming tab will only appear for adult accounts on the streamer, meaning children’s accounts will not be able to access the mobile games. Parents and guardians are able to create a PIN number in order to unlock games on Netflix for children’s accounts.

Netflix’s games are expected to become available on iOS “soon,” according to a Netflix spokesperson via The Hollywood Reporter.

Elsewhere, Carole Baskin is suing Netflix for Tiger King 2.
