The video game is probably based on the cult card game that was originally financed via Kickstarter, has long been a global mega hit and serves as a template.

The video game will be available in both single and multiplayer modes and will be closely linked to the series. Not only should cards be fed from the characters of the series, but certain game mechanics should also be influenced by the animated series. It will be exclusively playable on mobile only.
For Netflix, the game is another step in becoming the entertainment platform par excellence. Those responsible for the streaming service have in mind that users will spend more and more time on the platform or in the apps, not only binge series and films or consume reality and quiz formats there, but will soon also stay on Netflix to play games , instead of switching to another mobile app or to the game console.
