Netflix has just released a browser based game featuring characters from their orginal series including Stranger Things.
As Mike Wheeler, you can jump past security guards, soldiers and scientists while running through the woods around the secret military base. After a short while, the antagonist of the series, The Demogorgon appears and the chase is on. Mike does get a little help in the form of Eleven, a girl with some serious psychokinetic skills.
