The new season of Stranger Things (and the Upside-Down) is upon us. But, not everyone has Netflix. I watched the first two seasons and wanted to know what happened to the Hawkins crew, but I no longer have Netflix…so I had to get a little creative.
I came across Stranger Things 3: The Game via YouTube channels like Gamer’s Little Playground and RabidRetrospectGames. At first, I thought the game would be more spin-off or only focus on a piece of season 3. Nope, they did pretty much the whole thing. The game, as far as people say and what I’ve learned, follows the season like over 90 percent. The game even includes a pixelated version of the show’s post-credit scene.
The game itself seems to be about 7 to 8 hours long and is on PS4, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and PC. A mobile version by BonusXP is also supposed to be available, but I could only find one that mentioned season 2. It might be in an update.
IGN also provided many looks into season 3. Including a review, ending explanation, post-credit scenes explanation, what happened to (spoilers) character, and theories for season 4.
If you tie the IGN videos to the game, you can get a much clearer picture of what happened in season 3. I highly suggest watching both because there are some cutscenes in the game that make no sense unless you watch the videos.
Thanks for reading! Until the next wormhole…bye!
