Netflix has been pushing into the gaming sector for a while now. Last year saw the launch of the gaming side of its subscription service, and now it’s made another move – acquiring Stranger Things: Puzzle Tales dev Next Games.
The acquisition was announced in a blog post over on Netflix’s official site, and you can give it a little read by clicking right here. Alongside Stranger Things: Puzzle Tales, Next Games has worked on a couple of Walking Dead mobile titles as well.
The purchase will likely bring some more interesting experiences to the Netflix mobile gaming library. Stranger Things: Puzzle Tales isn’t perfect, but when it clicks it’s an awful lot of fun.
Because games that come out on Netflix don’t have IAPs or adverts, there’s scope for Next Games to make something pretty darn special, which is always a good thing.
Whether this is the end of Netflix’s purchasing remains to be seen, but we’ll let you know more as and when we hear it. Hopefully the future is bright for gamers with a Netflix subscription and a low attention threshold.
