For those that haven’t watched the show yet, it follows a group of kids besieged by a supernatural terror – and doubles as a love letter to the horror-tinged adventure films of the ’80s. Stranger Things Season Two airs on Netflix tomorrow, but for fans who can’t wait another minute to return to the spooky town of Hawkins, Indiana there’s now a game to accompany the show.

It’s 1984 all over again. Experience an action-adventure game just like the ones our heroes would have played back in the day. Stranger Things: The Game is a fun pixellated adventure which resembles classics like Zelda: A Link To The Past. According to the game director and BonusXP CEO Dave Pottinger, that’s been the plan from the start.

The game lets you explore Hawkins and its surroundings. See your favorite locations like Mirkwood Forest and Hawkins Lab. Uncover exciting areas you’ve never seen before. You will play with the same loveable characters from the show, each with their own special abilities that can be used to help solve the puzzles scattered around Hawkins’s Mirkwood Forest, plus other familiar locations.
