As the loveable Dustin Henderson put it so eloquently in the uber-popular 80s-style sci-fi horror show: “Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god.”
Telltale Games have announced that they’ve partnered with Netflix to bring a Stranger Things game to consoles and PCs in the future. According to Tech Radar – which has since been confirmed by the media streaming giant – the game will be very similar to Telltale’s 2014 Game Of Thrones video game adaptation. Essentially, it will feature an entirely new storyline, with new characters, though many familiar faces will show up along your journey.
Following Netflix’s confirmation of the recently revealed game, Telltale clarified that their Stranger Things project will launch on “consoles and computers at a later date.”
Separately, we're thrilled to confirm that Telltale is developing a game based on Stranger Things that we'll publish to consoles and computers at a later date. (2/3)

Netflix has also confirmed that Minecraft Story Mode will be coming to their streaming service in the future as an interactive adventure game, akin to Stretch Armstrong: The Breakout, Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale and Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile. This means that you’ll be able to play Mojang and Telltale’s adventure game on a Smart TV without the need of a console or PC. Pretty cool, eh?
In other Telltale-related news, the company has announced that The Wolf Among Us Season 2 has been sadly pushed back into early 2019 to help polish the experience. Plus, a release date and trailer for The Walking Dead: The Final Season dropped recently, too.
In regards to Telltale’s Stranger Things game, little else was revealed about the project. Though we believe that the Duffer brothers’ Twilight Zone-esque TV show would be an awesome fit for a Telltale adventure title. But how about you? Are you interested in taking a trip back to Hawkins, Indiana?
