    Stranger Things provided the world with the Eighties nostalgia it didn’t know it needed. And yesterday, Netflix and the show’s directors, the Duffer brothers, doubled-down by releasing a video game version of the hit show as an 8-bit—that is, original Nintendo quality—side-scrolling adventure available for both Android and iOS.

    Stranger Things, the show, played off our nostalgia for Flocks of Seagull haircuts and Breakfast Club-esque defiance. Stranger Things, the game, which was developed by indie game studio BonusXP, hooks into our fond memories of sitting on the floor too close to the TV and fighting over who gets to go next.
