Netflix, Inc. is an American subscription streaming service and production company based in Los Gatos, California. It is one of the most famous streaming services, as it features most of the prominent TV shows and movies. Netflix also contains Anime from different languages and genres.

Netflix has recently been focusing on its Gaming Endeavours. They seem pretty serious about their mission to develop video games based on their platform, which users can enjoy. In 2021, they purchased their first game development studio called “Night School.” But their first attempt at this service was not very good regarding actual results.

Recently, Netflix partnered up with an indie game maker called “Spry Fox.” Netflix is hoping that this collaboration might bring them the expected result. This article will discuss all that we know about this and more.

Spry Fox is known for their games with good visuals and cute characters. With games like strategy puzzle Triple Town, word game Alphabear, and life-sim Cozy Grove, Spry Fox is an excellent addition to the Netflix Game Dev team for sure. “We look forward to creating games with a studio whose values — a relentless focus on employee and player joy — align closely with ours,” Netflix stated.

Netflix is planning to launch at least 50 mobile games by the end of the year 2023. The idea is unique as the games are accessible to subscribers only, but the games have to be downloaded as a separate application. The game development and release idea of Netflix helps them keep the viewers poised between seasons of any popular show.

So, with the addition of Spry Fox to the team, it is expected that we will see some mind-soothing games released by the Netflix Game studio by the end of the year, and we will be able to not just binge over our favorite characters but will also be able to play as them.
