Going big on the game front, Netflix is all set to launch four new games on its app this month, including a new Exploding Kittens game that is based on a popular card game and will also be tied to an upcoming Netflix series premiering in 2023.
With the four new games added to the list, Netflix will soon have a total of 22 games on its app.
First up is the Exploding Kittens game, which was developed by Direwolf Digital, and retains the classic gameplay from the original card game, where players draw cards aiming to avoid the Exploding Kitten. Users will be able to play with two new exclusive cards, Radar and Flip Flop, to allow players to manipulate the deck in new ways. The new Exploding Kittens game will launch on May 31 in more than 15 languages.
The second is a game called Dragon Up, which was developed by Canadian developer East Side Games. The single-player adventure game sees players hatch and collect rare dragons in order to save their kingdom. Netflix notes that to make the game feel more magical, its graphic style takes inspiration from Scandinavian design and illustration seen in early storybooks and fairy tales. The game is launching today in more than 30 languages.
Next up is a game called ‘Townsmen: A Kingdom Rebuilt’ which is Netflix’s first game from Germany by developer HandyGames. The game sees players building a medieval city, making smart financial decisions, and doing what it takes to keep their people happy. The game is available now.
Lastly, Netflix is adding a game called Moonlighter from Spain by developer 11 Bit Studios. In this RPG adventure game, players manage a shop in an idyllic village by day. By night, players explore dungeons, slay monsters and unlock mysteries. Moonlighter is available now.
