One of my all-time favorite games is coming to Netflix

Cardboard Computer’s Kentucky Route Zero will arrive on Netflix later this year, as well as loads of other games

If you haven’t had the joy of playing it yet, a game coming to Netflix might be reason enough to keep your membership a little longer. Later this year, a mobile version of the point-and-click magical realist story game Kentucky Route Zero from developer Cardboard Computer will arrive exclusively on Netflix, with all five incredible acts available to play right from your smartphone.

I don’t want to spoil the game or its many surprising interludes with too many descriptions, but the shattered and simplified premise is that you are following a handful of people joining the path of the magical (and, at times, depressing) Route Zero – an imaginary .. let’s say “road” somewhere in southern Kentucky.

I’m not sure how the mobile title will vary from how things work on other platforms, but the PC version of the game uses vector graphics in a point and click navigation scheme, with deeper music, mood, and vibe. – narrative than expected. In addition to moving your characters in various scenes throughout the game’s five acts, much of the interaction and advancement is based on the dialogue through the options you choose. The play is less focused and deeper, with themes and ideas that touch upon a wide range of human experiences, and some of the various interludes in the act were quite incredible – one required you to dial a number from your real world phone.

Fans of more experimental forms of entertainment may be as hooked on Kentucky Route Zero as I am, and I consider it one of my top five favorite games of all time.

News of an exclusive Netflix mobile port comes from Netflix’s Geeked Week virtual fan festival. It was not mentioned in the video of the showcase (which I can find), Cardboard Computer didn’t mention it on its site either Twitter accountand it wasn’t included in the ads on the Netflix site, but a short teaser does include it:

PR confirms that the mobile version of the game will be exclusive to Netflix, although it’s unclear how long it might be exclusive. We contacted for more information.

Subscribers can also expect more Netflix games, but one is available right now. Poinpy is a new vertical scrolling platformer game from Devolver Digital and the developer behind Downwell, but this time you’re going up!

But that is not all; Two more games from Devolver Digital are also on the way. There’s Reigns: Three Kingdoms, a kind of card game with a Tinder rotation set in the Han dynasty and the somewhat stereotypical but entertaining fifth entry in the series. Nothing earth, previously a PC game also released by Devolveris a city-builder focused on responding to a climate crisis, now coming to mobile.

There is also a new narrative RPG called Shadow and Bone: Destinies, a game based on the Netflix reality series Too Hot to Handle, another based on the Money Heist series called La Casa De Papel, a Queen’s Gambit chess game, a platform based on Japanese Folklore called Lucky Luna, a turn-based strategy game called Desta: The Memories Between and a management game called Spiritfarer. That’s a lot to consider, you can browse Netflix’s monstrous list of game ads and watch the individual trailers there.
