Netflix has begun rollout of mobile video games, testing the concept with branded “Stranger Things” games in Poland. The American series has proved to be one of Netflix most popular and critically acclaimed original shows, with a fourth season launching in 2022.
The games, Stranger Things: 1984 and Stranger Things 3 are available in Polish and ad-free to mobile subscribers using Android devices.
“Let’s talk about Netflix games,” read a translated blog post. “Starting today, users in Poland can try out two mobile games on Android. We are at an early stage and we still have a lot of work to do in the coming months, but this is our first step.”
Netflix earlier this year announced the hire of video game executive Mike Verdu to spearhead the streamer’s online gaming strategy.
