Netflix has revealed the trailer for 'Dark', the 10-part German mystery thriller that debuted at the 2017 Toronto Film Festival.

Unlike most mystery series, 'Dark' focusses on when the deed was done, rather than who did it.

Set in modern-day Germany, it follows the disappearance of two young children, the fallout of which exposes the double lives and fractured relationships among four families.

The 10 hour-long episodes take on a supernatural bent that goes back to the same German town in 1986.

In other words, it sounds like a European 'Stranger Things'. Not that that's a bad thing. It goes live on 1st December.

Speaking of 'Stranger Things', Netflix has launched a mobile game based on the series. The game – which is free on iOS and Android – has a suitably retro feel, with 8-bit graphics and 80s-style tunes.

Players must explore the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, including Mirkwood Forest and the Hawkins Lab.

'Stranger Things' series two launches on 27th October on Netflix.
