I'm shocked no one is calling Netflix the devil for having this exclusive
It seems pretty sucky to me. I guess it's the general anti-mobile bias on this board. I feel like there's a lot of disdain here for two kinds of mobile games: 1) predatory F2P games, and 2) ones that cost money. So this is kind of invisible to a lot of the PCMR crowd. I was going to say people are going to go, I can already play this on PC so what's the point, but it looks like that already happened.
Speaking for myself, it looks like a good fit on mobile but I'm not paying for a Netflix subscription to get it. It would be like going to Burger King and only being allowed to buy their spicy chicken sandwich if you had, well, a Netflix subscription. But it's not a 1:1 analogy with Epic and Steam since in this scenario I assume you're still getting the game on the Play Store/Apple Store. So it's more like those games that require Origin or the Ubi thing to be installed. Except if those things cost money; people already hate them when they're free.
I do think that they'd get more goodwill -- among other people, not necessarily posters here -- if they gave a discount coupon or a free month or something through the game. Or if you got it free with your Netflix account (which you do) but everyone else could still buy it for money.
