An indie video game developer has created a old-school point-and-click game demo as a tribute to the hit Netflix series Stranger Things and it’s as engrossing and as ’80s as the show itself.
Here’s the description from the developer’s site:
“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.”
Here are some screenshots from the game:
After downloading and playing the game myself, I have to say it’s got the beginnings of becoming a really addictive game. Hopper’s got the same grizzled and gruff disposition as in the series. I highly recommend clicking around to get the full spectrum of Hopper’s comebacks and cracks.
Unfortunately, no crying Wynona Rider, Jean-Ralphio’s dad, or the kid with the lisp, but plenty of cigarettes and synth.
