Why Netflix?

Netflix, as well as HandyGames, loves games. And Netflix loves entertaining its members. That’s why they are bringing exclusive mobile games - with no ads or microtransactions - to their members around the world. And we do have awesome premium mobile games - so, what better collaboration than offering our games to the leading streaming entertainment service.

Do we betray all our loyal Townsmen mobile Fans?

No, certainly not. On the contrary. You DO have an active Netflix subscription, don't you? Then you will get our premium game "NETFLIX Townsmen - A Kingdom Rebuilt" ​ instead of paying extra hard-earned money for a premium mobile game. And Yes, that means every profile on your account (with the exception of kids profiles). Simply download the game through the Netflix mobile app and play away! Just like gaming is supposed to be.

"As Netflix is in the early days of creating a great gaming experience, we are excited and honored as the first German Developer to collaborate with Netflix to bring fans a game we're beyond proud of..." Thomas Buck, Director Sales & Business Development, HandyGames
