Do you want to see everything Netflix announced during Geeked Week? We have summarized all the announcements (including the new games) in our super post of all the movies and series of 2023 to get a mention here.
Before the event, Netflix announced that more than ten games would be shown. All of these games will be available for free as part of your Netflix subscription, with no ads or in-app purchases.
Let’s dive into all the newly announced games, listed below in alphabetical order:
Braid: Anniversary Edition

In the game’s first announcement trailer, which was released shortly before the Geeked Week reveal, developer Jonathan Blow walks you through some of the changes:
“It’s the classic time-manipulating puzzle adventure, repainted by hand to achieve modern high resolutions. Many areas have been redesigned to make them more unique, and it’s even more like a living painting with brush strokes that animate the world.
There are more than 9 pixels for every pixel in the original game. There are new animations, improved sound and music, a whole new world of puzzles to solve, and over 15 hours of commentary and interviews on game design, programming, and visual art. “We plan to make it the most detailed commentary on any game ever created, so if you want to learn how video games are made, Braid Anniversary Edition will be a really good resource.”
