Stranger Things makes a great-looking 8-bit video game

A fan of the hit Netflix horror series makes a mock-up of a retro-looking game. Now if only someone would make the game in real life.

The '80s creature-feature sensibilities of horror-adventure series Stranger Things have struck a chord with fans who love everything from kids classics Goonies and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial to terrifying movies like Alien and Poltergeist.

So it makes sense the Netflix show about kids searching for their friend lost in another, parallel world would become a perfect muse for fans wanting a retro-looking video game featuring characters from the show.

Game artist Midio decided to do just that. On Aug.15, he tweeted an animated GIF of the the main characters Eleven, Mike, Lucas and Dustin looking for their friend Will where he disappeared into the creepy woods.

Options in his game mock-up include hide, run, scream and fight when "your party senses a strange presence in the woods."

This isn't the first pixelated-game fan art for Stranger Things making the rounds on the internet. Last month, game designer Jacob Janerka tweeted animated GIFs of his own idea for a Stranger Things point-and-click adventure game.

Here's hoping a real Stranger Things video game goes into production so fans can relive their favorite spooky moments.
