Heads up! comes to Netflix with exclusive deck themes


Ellen’s popular charades mobile app Heads up! arrives on Netflix today as an exclusive version of the game, with 28 new card games from popular series like stranger things, Bridgerton and squid game.

More general entertainment decks are also available for genres such as anime, true crime, and baking shows. Chances are, then, that if you regularly watch exclusive Netflix content, you’ll find a category you like. The announcement of the new game also states that it will be available to play in 13 new languages ​​on Android and iOS devices.

Today’s news comes weeks after it was revealed that Netflix’s games only see 1.7 million daily users, which means around 99% of subscribers don’t have any explored the games category. It looks like Netflix is ​​trying to improve on those numbers by quickly acquiring new content for the platform. “With the addition of Netflix Heads up! our games catalog stands at 27 mobile games – doubling our catalog to over 50 games by the end of the year,” Netflix says in the announcement.

Heads up! It may not be a new face, but it is certainly a recognizable face. The game has been featured prominently on the Ellen Show (having been published by Ellen Digital Venture but developed by Gasket Games) and has so far amassed over 70 million downloads worldwide. It has also been ranked as Apple’s highest paying app in the App Store for the past five consecutive years (available for $1.99) and is currently free to download through the Google Play Store.

You can access the game by logging into your Netflix account on your mobile device. Members on Android and iOS mobile phones will see a dedicated games row and games tab where they can select any game to download.

Having such a recognizable and accessible game on the Netflix library could see a surge in player numbers as we head into the holiday season with family visits and indoor parties on the horizon. With Netflix having taken a huge hit to its subscriber numbers this year, it’s no wonder the streaming giant is looking to diversify its portfolio.
