‘Stranger Things 3: The Game’ Announced at Game Awards 2018

Stranger Things is well-known for promoting 80s nostalgia among those who lived through the decade (and those who wish they did) that brought us Dungeons & Dragons, ET, and coin-operated video games.  Further channeling this mania, creators Matt and Ross Duffer announced a game tie-in for the upcoming third season of Netflix’s hit show at the Game Awards 2018 on Thursday.

Though the Duffer brothers didn’t reveal much about what can be expected from the game, they did say it’s a classic 16-bit inspired game that takes place during the third season.  There is currently no release date for the game or what platforms the game will be featured on, but look for more information to be announced before Stranger Things Season Three debuts next summer. read more

In an exclusive interview with Vulture, the creators of Netflix’s hit series Stranger Things stated that the series will run for four seasons and then they are “out”.

Matt and Ross Duffer went on to say that “We just have to keep adjusting the story. Though I don’t know if we can justify something bad happening to them once a year.”

The brothers also cited the fact that by a fourth season the characters would be of college age (and would also quickly be escaping the 1980’s setting that is part of the charm of the series). read more
