Netflix gears up to launch its Inaugural Game, Love is Blind, on Netflix Stories App
Netflix is unveiling a fresh gaming experience titled “Netflix Stories: Love is Blind,” inspired by its hit reality show. This mobile game allows users to step into the shoes of a show contestant, reminiscent of another popular Netflix game, “Too Hot to Handle: Love is a Game.”
Set to release on September 19th, Netflix is allowing its subscribers to preregister for the “Love is Blind” game. This announcement doesn’t just stop at one game; Netflix is also developing more under the “Netflix Stories” banner, drawing inspiration from other shows like “Money Heist” and “Virgin River.” All these games will be accessible through a dedicated app.
The essence of “Netflix Stories” is to allow users to dive into the realms of their cherished shows and movies, enabling them to engage with familiar characters in a game setting. Players can personalise their feelings, make choices in the story, and immerse themselves in a universe of love, friendship, drama, and more.
Netflix is progressively venturing into the gaming domain, emphasising narrative-driven games and those rooted in its original content.
Recently Netflix launched its first text-based discord game based on the movie “Heart of Stone”, starring Gal Gadot and Alia Bhatt, ahead of the movie premiere on the platform.
Other notable launches include a game inspired by the mysterious “Oxenfree” and another based on the critically acclaimed “The Queen’s Gambit.” Given these endeavours, introducing the “Netflix Stories” brand aligns with the company’s vision to shape its emerging gaming segment. The Netflix library currently houses 35 games; another 50+ games are under development.
It is also to be noted that Netflix has plans to take its gaming services to the next stage and has started testing its game streaming services in Canada and UK.
And the gaming service will be accessible on various devices, including Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast with Google TV, LG TVs, Nvidia Shield TV, Roku devices, Samsung Smart TVs, and Walmart ONN. They plan to add more devices later.
