It is still now known if the games would be streamed or downloaded. However, this will not be the first for Netflix in terms of interactive entertainment. The company already offers some experiences like the Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, which is a movie that allows the viewers to make changes in terms of how the story would be played out. There is also a version of Telltale: Games’ Minecraft: Story Mode. Netflix also features a number of adaptations of some of the games like the Castlevania series and Dota: Dragon’s Blood.

The lockdown has become the perfect time for the gamers to pick their choices and make the most of the time that they have. Choices in the market would make things even more interesting.
