Last year, Epic Tale-- a series that took Shrek's Puss in Boots and dropped him into an experience where he's trying to get away from a storybook-- and , which showcases the hijinks of the eponymous Friend, a truck-racing dog. Obviously these preliminary efforts achieved success: As the technology news website TechRadar reports today, Netflix and Telltale Games(The Strolling Dead: The Telltale Series; Batman: The Telltale Series)have entered a collaboration where the latter will start dispersing some ofits video games on Netflix's platform laterthis year. Their first series is Minecraft: Story Mode, which
happens in Minecraft's world and follows Jesse, a new character(who, it should be said,can be either male or female), in their attempts to conserve the world. Inning accordance with TechRadar, the experience will be informed in 5 parts, and the Netflix variation of the story will be "delivered by means of video files and will accept commands via any remote geared up with directional and choose buttons."The format works well with Telltale's video games, which mainly depend on point-and-click mechanics. TechRadar Reports that Telltale is developing a non-interactive Stranger Things adjustment for Netflix.(It will be a brand-new Telltale series.) Minecraft: Story Mode Debuted in October 2015. While it remains to be seen exactly what Netflix's variation is going to look like, there's no question that the streaming service has prepare for ambitious, aggressive growth into spaces not traditionally occupied by video platforms.
