Netflix Games is back in May 2022 with at least four new gaming offerings. All are mobile games with a couple of repackaged games exclusive for Netflix and one brand new IP too.

Our last preview for Netflix’s gaming lineup was back in March 2022 but since then we saw the daily release of Netflix’s interactive quiz and a delayed release of some of the March lineup.

For everything coming to Netflix (US) in May 2022, check out our full list here.


Exploding Kitties

Developer: Exploding Kittens, Inc

From humble beginnings as a Kickstarter project for a card game, we later saw a mobile game release for the card game that’s a premium purchase. On Google Play, the premium version of the game has now picked up over 500,000 downloads.

Now it’ll be headed to Netflix for free.

Alongside the announcement last week of Exploding Kitties coming to Netflix Gaming, they also announced a new animated series for the property too. Among the voice cast assembled for the new series includes Tom Ellis, Abraham Lim, Lucy Liu, Ally Maki, Mark Proksch, and Sasheer Zamata.


Dragon Up

Developer: East Side Games
