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.
The game resembles the 8/16-bit video games of the past and is made with simplicity in mind. The spacebar is the only key you will need to press in this game. Hitting it once makes you jump, while hitting it twice makes you do a higher, double jump.
In addition to Mike Wheeler from Stranger Things being playable character, three other players from Netflix’s hit streaming shows are available to use as well. Pablo Escobar from Narcos, Piper Chapman from Orange is the New Black, and Marco Polo from Marco Polo. The game varies slightly based on the character you choose so expect to see different backgrounds and enemies for each character.
The second season of Stranger Things is set to debut on Netfilx on or before July 2017. Keep it here as we will have the latest news on Stranger Things as it becomes available.
