Stranger Things the show was a straight-up hit, so why wouldn’t they make a game about it? Stranger Things 3: The Game is a beat-em-up taking place in Hawkins, Indiana, which is the show’s main location.
The game is a throwback to the SNES era, with a pixelated style it nails the 80’s look that the show has done so well to replicate. Through levels of key show locations, you and a friend or ten can team up and fight the demi gorgon in the Upside Down.
“Oxenfree” has earned its place as one of the best games on Netflix, showcasing its excellence through a compelling narrative and innovative gameplay. Released in 2016, the game garnered widespread acclaim and numerous awards, including Best Indie Game and Best Narrative at The Game Awards that year. In 2017, it continued its success with Outstanding Achievement in Story and Best Debut.
The high praise underscores the game’s exceptional storytelling, character development, and atmospheric design. As players navigate the eerie and mysterious setting of Edwards Island, they are drawn into a supernatural tale that unfolds dynamically based on their choices.
