‘Storyteller’ is an upcoming indie game generating significant buzz and it will soon be available on Netflix.


‘Storyteller’ is an intriguing indie game that revolves around writing, word puzzles, and the narratives we construct to navigate our daily lives. Set to launch on September 26th, it will be available for Android and iOS users through Netflix. Developed by solo creator Daniel Benmergui, ‘Storyteller’ had a long journey, spending over a decade in development before finding a publishing partner in Annapurna Interactive.

In the game, players manipulate comic book-style elements to shape the lives, relationships, and outcomes of medieval characters, offering a soothing and entertaining experience that captures the essence of creative writing with its absurdity. Upon its release, ‘Storyteller’ will introduce free downloadable content (DLC) for iOS, Android, Switch, and PC users, expanding the collection of stories available for players to weave.

The collaboration between ‘Storyteller’ and Netflix aligns with the streaming platform’s strategic move into mobile gaming. With plans to have nearly 100 titles in its library by the end of the year, Netflix is offering free access to its mobile games for subscribers. In addition to ‘Storyteller,’ Netflix has brought other notable indie games such as Kentucky Route Zero, Oxenfree, Spiritfarer, Into the Breach, Moonlighter, Laya’s Horizon, TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge, Valiant Hearts: Coming Home, and has even acquired Night School Studio, the developer behind Oxenfree.
