What if God and the devil were sent down to earth to settle the eternal conflict between heaven and hell … in the form of chunky house cats?

If the concept seems wacky and off-the-wall, that’s because, well, it is. It’s just the right balance of out-of-this-world quirk and humor that we’ve come to expect from game company Exploding Kittens — and now, that universe is expanding.

An animated series and mobile game are coming to Netflix based on the original Exploding Kittens card game. It’s also the first time in Netflix history that the platform is launching both a movie game and TV series from the same franchise.

Launching next month, Exploding Kittens — The Game is an exclusive, mobile version of the game in which players draw cards aiming to avoid the Exploding Kitten. Plus, fans can get excited for two exclusive cards: Radar, which reveals to players the position of the Exploding Kitten closest to the top of the card deck, and Flip Flop, which reverses the order of the cards in the deck. Future cards and game mechanics will be themed around the animated series. With both single and multiplayer options, the game will be available to Netflix members without additional fees or in-app purchases.
