Netflix Has Acquired Its First Video Game Studio

Forging ahead with its bizarre plans to expand into the video game space, Netflix has reportedly acquired Night School Studio, an indie game developer that will mark the first acquisition of its kind for the streaming platform.

Night School Studio has a couple of hit games on its roster, including 2019’s Afterparty, which takes place in a college town in hell, and 2016’s Oxenfree, which, according to the studio’s website, is a “supernatural thriller about a group of friends who unwittingly open a ghostly rift.” (Sounds oddly familiar?) In fact, the connections between Night School Studio and the hit Netflix original Stranger Things go beyond the superficial: the studio had been working on a hybrid puzzle game based on the series back in 2018 when unexpected layoffs forced the project’s sudden shutdown.

In a statement, Mike Verdu, vice president of game development at Netflix, said that the platform’s initial game offerings will be completely free, without ads or the option for in-app purchases, and would be “exclusive games designed for every kind of gamer and any level of play.”

The announcement of the acquisition comes just one day after Netflix revealed that its early library of mobile games, which introduced “Stranger Things: 1984”, “Stranger Things 3: The Game”, “Card Blast”, “Teeter Up” and “Shooting Hoops” titles on Android to Netflix members in Spain and Italy. Poland, where the “Stranger Things” titles are already available, will get the other three titles.
