Now You Can Watch ‘Stranger Things’ As An 8-Bit Video Game

Its skillful use of ‘80s nostalgia was one of the reasons Stranger Things was such a huge hit, so it makes sense that someone—like one of those nerd children all grown up—would recreate the show as an 8-bit video game.

Created by Cinefix’s David and Henry Dutton, the 4-minute video covers all the important parts of the show: You see Will get abducted by the creature from the Upside Down; you’re with Lucas, Mike, and Dustin when they find Eleven; you watch as Joyce asks for an advance to buy a new phone; and, unfortunately, you’re there when Eleven finds Barb’s dead body 🙁

The clip also impressively recreates the show’s soundtrack into MIDI. Watch it below.
