Amid headlines about its declining subscriber base, Netflix has announced its next game project: a mobile version of the hit card game Exploding Kittens.
Exploding Kittens – The Game will be released next month via Netflix as the latest mobile title available to subscribers.
An adult animated series of Exploding Kittens is also planned, with Lucy Liu and Lucifer star Tom Ellis as the voices. However, this project will not arrive before 2023.
Sound-wise, this new mobile version of Exploding Kittens will play similarly to the card-based original. Players take turns drawing cards without getting exploded themselves. Single player and multiplayer will be available.
“Future maps and gameplay mechanics will be themed around the animated series, so friends and families can play as their favorite characters and bring the show to life,” Netflix said in a statement to Variety.
“Co-developing a game and an animated series is new territory for Netflix,” said Netflix executive Mike Moon, “and we couldn’t think of a better game to build a universe than Exploding Kittens, one of the most inventive, iconic, and original games of all.” century!”
