The Walking Dead: Our World developer Next Games is working on a location-based mobile game set in Netflix\u2019s Stranger Things universe. It's not the first Stranger Things game Netflix has announced, but this one notably takes some cues from Niantic's Pokemon Go.\n\nNetflix bills the game as a free-to-play RPG\/puzzle title for mobile devices, featuring Google Maps integration, location-based gameplay, and social play.\n\nSince the rise of Pokemon Go, a number of notable franchises have announced they\u2019re following in Pokemon\u2019s footsteps with their own location-based mobile games. Netflix\u2019s Stranger Things is only the latest to do so: Minecraft, Dragon Quest, and Harry Potter all have Pokemon Go-like games on the way, and Netflix\u2019s Stranger Things is only the latest to do so.\n\nBut for Netflix, the decision to launch a Stranger Things mobile game builds on the company\u2019s growing interest in using interactive content alongside its traditional episodic and movie offerings. Netflix launched a choose-your-own-adventure style\u00a0show called Bandersnatch earlier this year, and prior to that worked with Telltale Games to bring Minecraft: Story Mode to the service.\n\nNow, the company\u2019s efforts see it bringing games to other platforms. Stranger Things\u2019 upcoming third season has a \u201ccompanion game\u201d due out next month called Stranger Things 3: The Game for multiple platforms, and Nintendo\u2019s E3 live stream\u00a0saw the announcement of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics based on Netflix\u2019s upcoming The Dark Crystal reboot.
