Netflix and Telltale Games have announced that they're currently collaborating on two new projects: a game based on 80s-themed mystery show Stranger Things, and an interactive TV version of Minecraft: Story Mode.

Telltale's Stranger Things project, now officially confirmed by Netflix, was originally uncovered by Tech Radar. According to the site's sources, the game will take be similar to Telltale's Game of Thrones adaptation. That is, it'll feature an entirely new story with a new set of characters, with familiar faces from the TV show popping up along the way.

Telltale followed up Netflix's confirmation with a tweet revealing that its Stranger Things project will launch on "consoles and computers at a later date".

Netflix has also confirmed that it will be broadcasting a 5-episode interactive narrative series this autumn, based on Telltale's Minecraft: Story Mode - a currently-two-season-long story-driven take on Mojang's perennially popular survival and building game. Netflix likens the new Minecraft effort to its other interactive stories "like Stretch Armstrong: The Breakout, Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale and Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile".

Telltale notes that more information on both Netflix/Telltale collaborations will be revealed "later in the year". The company recently announced that it was delaying its highly anticipated second season of The Wolf Among Us from 2018 to next year. Perhaps we now know why.
