If you remember, we conveyed to you in November of 2021 that Netflix , which opened the game tab to all users , officially entered the game world with the Netflix Games brand . Netflix, which is preparing to develop PC games on the one hand , announced that it has added 9 new games to its mobile game catalog this week . Games include Devolver Digital’s Reigns : Three Kingdoms , Neowiz ‘s Cats & Soup , and Rogue Games ‘ Hello Kitty Happiness Parade .
In addition, it was noteworthy that the company included the Country Friends game similar to Farmville in its games. Farmville, which influenced users on Facebook for a while , played an active role in spending a long time on the platform. Country Friends could do the same for Netflix.
Other games released were Skies of Chaos, Flutter Butterflies and Stranger Things: Puzzle Tales . At this point, let us remind you that Stranger Things: Puzzle Tales, which was first published in 2021, was updated in accordance with the 4th season at the beginning of November . This version of the game took its place among other Stranger Things-themed games such as Stranger Things: 1984 and Stranger Things 3: The Game.
With 9 new games added, the company has increased the number of games to over 40 . It is possible that the number of games will increase to 50 by the end of 2022 .
Reaching 5 game studios in a year with its acquisitions, Netflix also established a new mobile game studio in Helsinki last September . It is worth adding that the company, which develops mobile games for both iOS and Android platforms together with Netflix Games, acquired mobile game studio Spry Fox at the beginning of November .
We see that a very small portion of Netflix subscribers play these games. According to August data, Netflix’s mobile games have been downloaded 23 million times to date . Netflix has more than 221 million subscribers in total. Still, the company is determined to take its position in the gaming market to a different level.
