Well, someone has gone and done it. Someone has gone and made a demo of a game based off of Netflix’s Stranger Things.
Those of us who have been watching the Netflix series had joked about there needing to be a game made. The story was right. The setting was right. The suspense and hair raising tingling feelings were on point. Combine all of those together and you have the formula of what could be an epic 80’s video game. As Kotaku first reported, it appears that Infamous Quests has come up with a video game demo that mixes all of the necessary elements that we’ve come to enjoy from Netflix’s Stranger Things.
The game is fairly simple and short. It is a one-room point-and-click adventure. It covers one scene from the show and involves a handful of characters. You have Chief Hopper, Officer Powell, Officer Callahan, and the science teacher Mr. Clarke. The scenario is that all four of these characters are out in the woods searching for the missing Will Byers. I won’t reveal much else, but emphasize the simplicity of the game. If you’re paying attention to your surroundings, you’ll finish the demo quickly.
The synopsis for the demo version of the game is as follows:
“99 out of a hundred times, the missing kid is with a parent or relative.This is about that one other time.”
The disappearance of Will Byers has the town of Hawkins, Indiana – and Chief Jim Hopper – on edge.
Based on the Netflix series created by the Duffer Brothers.
This is a one-room, point and click adventure game, done in tribute to the series. Created by Steven Alexander, James Mulvale & Jon Taylor-Stoll of Infamous Quests, this is a small labor of love.
