Netflix, the streaming giant has played a key role in transitioning the world of entertainment from DVDs to streaming TV shows and films through the internet on mobiles and TVs. However, with the rise of mobile gaming, the streaming service expanded its reach in November 2021 with the launch of Netflix Games. Since the start, the platform has launched more than 80 plus games and more games are set to arrive later.
During the Netflix Geeked Week 2023, the streaming giant revealed new mobile titles coming to Netflix games in the coming days and 2024. Geeked Week is a week-long virtual event and this year’s edition is the third event which showcased the biggest, finest, and most anticipated genre titles in movies, television shows, and game titles.
On the last day of Geeked Week 23, the company announced some heavy hitters which are being introduced to its gaming portfolio.
Netflix Games Announces Hades and Three More New Games
Hades is a video game developed by Supergiant Games and will be exclusively coming to mobiles via Netflix. In this role-playing game, you have only one mission which is to escape hell. Hades is an isometric dungeon crawler roguelike in which you play as Zagreus, prince of Tartarus and son of Hades, as he attempts to flee his father’s rule and reach the mortal world in order to find his mother.

You pick one of several various weapons before every attempt to escape hell, and the gods of Olympus award you boons to aid you along the road. Hades never plays the same way twice, thanks to the near-infinite permutations of weapons, talents, and boons bestowed by your fellow gods, and it will automatically be the best game in Netflix’s catalogue when it releases.
In his journey, Zagreus establishes relations with his friends and family that strengthen with each journey to hell, resulting in some genuinely beautiful, painful, and amusing scenes. The game never made it to mobile devices until Netflix decided to change that. However, Hades is only coming to iOS devices, starting in 2024.
Braid: Anniversary Edition
The long-awaited anniversary iteration of Jonathan Blow’s time-bending puzzle platformer, which was initially announced in 2020, will be published by Netflix Games in April of next year.
The game’s Anniversary Edition includes a slew of additional features, such as the option to choose between old and new visuals at will and 15 hours of developer commentary from Blow and Frank Cifaldi of the Video Game History Foundation.
