The next game from studio ustwo will be a Netflix exclusive. Desta will make you evolve in the dreams and reality of the main character.
Video game releases follow one another at high speed, each title wants to bring something different, in many ways. For fans, it can be difficult to play all the games they care about, especially since some are platform-exclusive. If you want to discover the next title from the studio to which we owe Monument Valley, for example, you must subscribe to Netflix.
Ustwo studio’s next game will be a Netflix exclusive
Indeed, you will need to have an active subscription to Netflix if you want to try the game Desta: The Memories Between. Games developer Monument Valley has announced that its sports-influenced turn-based roguelike will be a Netflix mobile exclusive when it launches in a few months, before the end of this year. The game will be coming to other platforms, but Netflix promises that this first release won’t contain any micro-transactions or “extra fees.”
In Desta, a young man in his twenties returns home after the death of his father. You must help him deal with his past in his dreams and in reality by solving puzzles and talking with the many people he left behind. As you’ve probably guessed, the hybrid game mechanics should be significantly more varied than in games like Monument Valley – ustwo notably borrowed some mechanics from Hades and Into the Breach -.

Desta’s exclusivity lends even more weight to Netflix’s commitment to gaming. The VoD giant has already been very serious about this subject with its derivative products and its ever-expanding catalog, and it never stops courting major mobile game developers, such as ustwo . In this field, Netflix competes with Apple Arcade and Google Play Pass as well as Amazon and Disney. It is again and again a question of attracting customers ready to pay a small nest egg per month to access a catalog of quality games without surprise costs.
