Lastly, on the topic of games streaming, Netflix had the following to say: "We don't have any plans to get into gaming".

Minecraft will be the latest addition to Netflix's growing interactive services. "(Though, from the sounds of it, numerous battle sequences will be cut from the final product, )" the article notes.

Telltale Games and Netflix have confirmed their working on a Stranger Things game.

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

Trump declares the North Korea nuclear threat is over
A North Korean aide wearing latex gloves reportedly inspected and wiped the pen intended for Kim , which he didn't end up using . But conservatives in South Korea slammed the summit, saying it failed to curb North Korea's nuclear ambitions.

Netflix told TechRadar this will be a "five-episode interactive narrative series" that will accept commands via any remote equipped with directional and select buttons. The company was adamant that it doesn't consider an interactive offering to be a game, but rather an extension of the cinematic experience.

Separately, we've learned of a new Telltale Games project based on Netflix's hit series Stranger Things - though no release window or additional details were provided.

While there hasn't been an official announcement, Netflix's clarification to some of TechRadar's, the website who first broke the news, information is arguably confirmation enough that Netflix will be adding Telltale's games to its service.

"I'll have one of those", thought Netflix to itself, seeing Nvidia's GeForce Now program. It's not a game coming to Netflix's service, and is instead part of Netflix's ongoing marketing and title promotion efforts. That format works well with Telltale's games, which mostly rely on point-and-click mechanics. "But it wouldn't be so unfathomable to think about playing a Telltale game over a streaming video service of that calibre". Sometimes it works incredibly well, like in The Walking Dead game, and other times it feels like they're aping the tone but not the positives of the source material, as was the case with the largely miserable Game of Thrones adaptation. Furthermore, Netflix has already dabbled in this field with interactive adventures like Puss in Book and Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile, both of which are aimed at a younger audience and allow kids to choose how they want the story to play out. The Stranger Things game was apparently ready to launch last fall, but might now be unveiled alongside the partnership, whenever it's announced.
