Netflix have entered into a partnership that will see the popular drama turned into an actual game!
Telltale games (Minecraft Storymode, The Walking Dead: A New Frontier) tweeted about an exciting partnership with Netflix that will see the popular sci fi drama turned into a video game for both consoles and computers.
We're delighted by the response we're seeing to the idea of Minecraft: Story Mode coming to @Netflix in the fall as an interactive adventure. (1/3)— Telltale Games @ E3 (@telltalegames) June 13, 2018

Our partnership with Netflix is something we're incredibly proud of, and while we don't have anything more to share right now, we're excited to reveal details on these projects later in the year. (3/3)— Telltale Games @ E3 (@telltalegames) June 13, 2018
Telltale don't have many more details for fans at the moment but promised more information later in the year.
For context, the forthcoming Stranger Things behind the scenes book and prequel are set to drop in autumn 2018 and spring 2019, respectively, according to Deadline. There is a very good chance that Stranger Things related media may very well dominate late 2018 and much of 2019.
The California based video game developer has also partnered up with Netflix on an interesting venture for the platform. Netflix have confirmed that Telltale's Minecraft: Story Mode will be adapted into an "interactive narrative series" coming this autumn. Netflix already have some interactive titles on the platform, but none that have been adapted from video games.
The Netflix site describes its interactive content as "a fun new way to experience Netflix. In each interactive title, you can make choices for the characters, shaping the story as you go!"
There's no timeline for when the Stranger Things game will drop, but we're sure it will be worth the wait. Meanwhile, we're still eagerly waiting on the third series which is expected to premiere in 2019.
