Netflix now has a library of over 80 games for subscribers at no extra-cost on iOS and Android, as well as TVs and desktops in some cases. As part of its Geeked Week event, the company announced new titles that will be added to the service, including indie classics.
One of the best games of 2020, Hades, will soon be available to Netflix subscribers on iOS, but not on Android for now. It is a rogue-lite dungeon crawler with a significant focus on replayability. Players will take on the role of Zagreus, the prince of the Underworld, and each time he dies, he will start over. The game is different every time you play, but knowledge, weapons, and abilities carry over. Hades has a rich cast of characters and offers a unique and engaging experience.
The classic time-manipulation platformer Braid is also making its way to iOS and Android for Netflix users. The Braid, Anniversary Edition features upgraded audio, hand-repainted visuals, fresh animations, and a new world of puzzles to solve. Additionally, there will be over 15 hours of commentary delving into game design, programming, and development. Braid creator Jonathan Blow announced that the new edition will be available on Netflix Games, Windows, PlayStation, and Xbox on April 30.
Death’s Door, a standout indie game from 2021, will soon be a mobile exclusive for Netflix subscribers. In this Zelda-esque adventure, players control a crow tasked with collecting souls for the Reaping Commission Headquarters, a bureaucratic entity in the afterlife.
Other titles on the way to Netflix Games include the action platformer Katana Zero, as well as games based on Netflix shows and movies. Shadow and Bone: Enter the Fold, Chicken Run: Eggstraction, and The Dragon Prince: Xadia are among the titles set to arrive in 2024. Additionally, a game based on Money Heist, one of Netflix’s biggest hits, is coming soon, allowing players to take part in a version of the heist from the original series alongside the spinoff series Berlin.
