It is no shock that Netflix has been trying to grow its roots in the gaming industry. It’s relatively new, but it continues to explore the gaming market and has plans to establish itself in gaming. This week Netflix‘s roots have spread further into the gaming verse and released two new titles. Their emergence in the gaming market is showing no indication of decline.
This week, the stream library has unveiled two new titles. The card roguelike Arcanium: Rise of Akhan is the headliner and the casual project Krispee Street. Both games are available to download on iOS and Android without spending a dime if you’re a Netflix subscriber.
Hearthstone Like Roguelike
Arcanium: Rise of Akhan is a Hearthstone-styled roguelike experience. It was released back on Steam in 2020 that has been added to the stream library. It currently upholds a “mostly positive” rating on Steam. Arcanium made few innovations in its genre. Even though it’s a single-player game, it included elements of open-world and roguelike, also including genres of adventure and strategy. Its Steam listing recounts it as an “open-world, single-player strategy card adventure” and blend of the roguelike and deckbuilding genres.
Casual Find Object Adventure
On the other hand, Netflix also released a casual project. It can be defined as a “casual, find the hidden object game”. Krispee Street is a game where you have to find the object. It is a digital version of the webcomic Krispee. This game is almost like an alternate digital version of “Where’s Waldo”. Developed by FrostyPops, this project is a feel-good item hunt experience. What’s On Netflix states that it’s the fourth game from developer FrostyPop to come out on Netflix since the service’s official debut last November.
With the release of these two titles, Netflix now holds almost a dozen games in its library to play on Android and iOS. The library is going to expand in size as more titles are released for it. We can expect developers like Frostypop to add more games in the future.
However, this is still not enough to pursue people to buy subscriptions themselves, but it is a good start and a neat edition. They are free from any in-app purchases. Gamers that already hold a subscription to Netflix are only ought to gain from this. Let us know what you think about this in the comments below.
