Netflix wasn't playing when it announced it was getting into video games in a big way. The streaming giant is continuing is gradual rollout of titles available via the service, adding new games that can be accessed alongside the usual batch of TV and film content.
I should stress that this really is a gradual rollout, however. At the time of writing, Netflix has only introduced a handful of games to Android devices in Spain, Italy, and Poland. This is clearly a first step with much bigger things to come, but we're still not entirely sure when the UK will get its first real taste of Netflix gaming action.
For now, the titles that have been added to Netflix's new gaming service give us some idea of what to expect when the rollout makes its way over here. Crucially, a bunch of brand-new games have been added to the lineup, joining the previously confirmed Stranger Things: 1984 and Stranger Things: The Game.
The more hardcore gamers out there will probably be a little disappointed to see that these new games are fairly stereotypical mobile titles. Teeter Up looks like a pretty casual puzzle game, while Card Blast... well, you probably know everything you need to know about Card Blast from the title alone.
That's not to say Netflix doesn't have bigger things to come though, my friends. The company just announced last night that it has acquired its very first video game developer: Night School Studio. You may recognize Night School as the creator of the excellent story-driven horror adventure Oxenfree, which is well worth checking out if you haven't already.
Both Night School and Netflix have teased exciting exclusive content for the streaming service going forward, so watch this space.
