Telltale Games is working on a 'Stranger Things' adventure game

While Telltale and others consider "Minecraft: Story Mode" to be a type of game, Netflix does not. The service merely requires players to use their remote as a game controller, leading to the initial speculation that additional hardware won't be necessary to play the select series coming to Netflix.

That's isn't exactly what's happening.

UPDATE: A Netflix spokesperson got in touch with us this afternoon to confirm that the streaming giant will launch "a licensed 5-episode interactive narrative series" called Minecraft: Story Mode this fall. As suspected, the Minecraft release will be an "interactive narrative story", similar to the stories the service has featured since last summer.

The representative also stated that "the Stranger Things project is launching on the Telltale platform at a later date", as part of Netflix's title promotion efforts.

According to a TechRadar report citing anonymous sources (that's your cue to bust out your grains of salt), Netflix has partnered with Telltale Games, and will add Minecraft: Story Mode to its service soon - potentially even as early as this year.

Meghan Markle could earn an Emmy nomination for 'Suits' despite royal status
Her great-great grandmother Mary was born here and she says there's something magical about "fitting in a piece of the puzzle". Biographer Duncan Larcombe added: "It is traditional for new Royal mums to take a six-month break from official engagements".

There are no specific details for the Stranger Things game yet.

Telltale Games will bring the Upside Down to a game console near you with a Stranger Things video game. Stranger Things was confirmed as a separate entity, coming to traditional gaming platforms like the company's previous works.

Telltale Games has branched out into the worlds of Game of Thrones, Fables, The Walking Dead, Batman, Guardians of the Galaxy, and more. It remains to be seen what Netflix's version is going to look like, but it's clear the streaming company has ambitious plans to make its service more engaging by offering its subscribers content beyond video.

Netflix isn't playing the semantics game when it drives a wedge between interactive entertainment and video games. 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". It's likely that both the partnership and new game could be announced simultaneously.
