Netflix Stories Brand Launches With Love is Blind Series Tie-In

The game is based on the streaming service’s hit dating show as it begins a fifth series

Streaming giant Netflix has announced the upcoming release of Netflix Stories: Love is Blind on September 19th, three days ahead of the release of the hit dating show’s fifth season on September 22nd. The game will be the first under the Netflix Stories banner – a new brand of interactive story games, “That will immerse players in an ever-growing catalogue of stories from fan-favourite Netflix series and films.”

The series takes several singles and places them in their unique pods for 10-day periods, forming relationships but only meeting should they decide to get engaged. The show then follows the new couples up to their wedding four weeks later, where they decide whether or not to continue their relationship.

The game puts players in the role of a customisable singleton taking part in the show, making choices and seeing a relationship unfold. Players will also have the opportunity to meddle in other relationships, either to help others find love or sabotage their chances.

New series, new game

Interactive stories have a strong foothold in the platform thanks to games like Chapters or Episodes. These have largely been based on third-party IPs, but Netflix hopes to leverage the popularity of its own IPs to make a big splash in the market. All of the games included in the Netflix Stories brand will be made available on a dedicated app, available for free and exclusively to Netflix subscribers.

In addition to Love is Blind, Netflix also announced games based on its series Virgin River and Money Heist, with players being able to preview two chapters of the latter ahead of the release of spin-off Berlin in December.

It’s unknown which other Netflix properties are in-line for their own stories, however it’s worth noting that the streamer has an enviable catalogue of both films and series. As such, there’s plenty of potential to draw from as Netflix attempts to further increase its position in the games space.
