Movie streaming giant Netflix has released five games on its platform and it’s free. The innovation stems from its zeal to become the biggest go-to app for entertainment globally.
Recall that in September, Netflix purchased the California-based Night School Studio, the creators of Oxenfree, a paranormal thriller game to break into the gaming sector.
Two of the games released are based on the Netflix horror series “Stranger Things”, while the other three are classified under card and skill games.
“We’re excited to take our first step in launching Netflix games on mobile to the world,” the company said in a release.
“We want to begin to build a library of games that offers something for everyone.”
“Just like our series, films and specials, we want to design games for any level of play and every kind of player,” Netflix said.
Currently only subscribers in countries Italy, Poland and Spain have access to the games since the global rollout on Tuesday.
For now, the games are designed to play on Android phones or tablets who have functional Netflix accounts. iPhone and iPads do not have access for now.
To lead it’s gaming team, Netflix recruited Facebook’s Mike Verdu, a talented video game veteran.
