Netflix is basically making a series of Telltale kids games

‘Interactive Adventures’

Taking a page from Telltale’s recent book (where it’s less of a puzzle adventure game and more just choosing things), Netflix is getting into the modern adventure racket. This just announced this week that they’re starting with the children angle with two projects — Puss in Book (coming June 20) and Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile (coming July 14).

It remains to be seen if this is going to be an ongoing “thing,” but for now, Netflix is getting games. Game…things. Maybe you don’t consider Telltale games or some walking simulators “games.” Man I don’t want to have that conversation. Let’s agree to disagree, that they’re games.

Are we having that argument now? Okay they’re games, it’s settled.
