The first two games are available as part of the Netflix subscription feature characters from the hit series Stranger Things. They are currently only available in Poland, but we did not expect service so soon.
Since the end of July, the idea of a gaming offer based on Netflix has been rumored. We already know that SVoD Platform aims to deliver games at no extra cost within its subscription.
We also learned that the American giant intended to have more interest in games for mobile devices than blockbusters.
Stranger Things: The Game
However, we have no timetable. Netflix surprised the world by making the first two games available to Polish Internet users. These are the expected Android mobile games, both referring to the hit series. Stranger Things. That is Stranger Things 1984 And Stranger Things 3: The Game.
Let’s talk about Netflix and gaming.

The ad came with its red and black logo on the company’s Polish Twitter account, which was quickly taken over by Netflix Geek, one of the giant’s main accounts. The second dictates that these are “Very early days” Service and he “There is still a lot of work to be done in the coming months.” The account confirms that this is the first for the brand.
In detail, Netflix highlights three main characters to enter into video games:
- Lack of advertising;
- Not purchased on the app;
- Games are included in the Netflix subscription.
In the interface submitted by Netflix, games are not displayed except for the rest of the content. However, they have their own category, Play mobile games, Which clearly indicates the trend of the service in favor of mobile games.
On the other hand, we still do not know if it’s cloud gaming or if the games are downloaded directly to the subscriber’s Android smartphone.
