Due to its season-two arrival, BonusXP released Stranger Things: The Game this month, in collaboration with Netflix.
Who is missing the 80s and early 90s computer games – and watching Stranger Things? ‘The Game’ is definitely for you. BonusXP made it like a 16-bit-styled adventure in the vein of The Legend of Zelda.
Let’s watch the preview of the game, here:
Speaking of much about the IT-stuff this month, the game also pays homage to Stephen King’s masterpiece. Dreadcentral explains the thing like in the sewer stage of the game, five items are red and blue balloons.
David Pottinger, President and Game Director at BonusXP, said:
I think the release of Stranger Things: The Game has wildly exceeded our expectations. We knew the show was popular. We had ideas that the game was pretty good. But, the fan reaction has been astounding. We’re very happy that people enjoy the game so much.”
[…] we used the rich world the Duffers built as an advantage. We had so much good source material to work with. We were dying to just play in the universe and tell some fun stories. We always get asked about whether it is difficult to work with someone else’s franchise, but it certainly was not in this case. Netflix and the Duffers were great; they wanted the game to be awesome as much as we did.
The most-expected season two of Stranger Things will be released on Netflix on the 27th of October.
Can’t wait to see the new episodes? Then play the game instead!
