Stranger Things 3: The Game is here, and so, armed with my Nintendo Switch, and a deep sense of nostalgia towards isometric games, I thought I'd give it a whirl. It's strange because, other than a mobile game in 2017, I can't remember seeing a previous Stranger Things Game. Still, let's delve in.

  • Thanks for (another) stellar review! I had the pleasure of doing the music and sound for this game and agree it’s more of a 16bit homage rather than 8bit indicative of the time. My sound is definitely very 16bit while my music is all retro synth goodness....which is admittedly a strange sonic combo. Thanks again! By the way, I LOVED your sega master system, mega drive, and VR docs, so well done!

  • funny thing is the Mobile game is a technical prequel to this game (even tho it really has a original story instead recreating season 1 or 2)

  • Someone please explain something to me; They create a game like this and put puzzles in it. Puzzles require you to think. Yet, the designers obviously thought that their audience had IQs in the low single-digits or they wouldn't have labeled absolutely everything in the game that you can smash or interact with, with the (A) symbol. And if players are too mind-numbingly stupid to figure out what to smash on their own, or that the same button talks to every NPC, activates switches, open doors, etc, how can they be expected to solve ANY puzzles?

  • I dont think the Evil Empires flag on the science base is big enough, they got bigger flags at NASA lol Bad Communists Classic cold war polarized yankee perspective, of cause the Russians made the other side look bad too in their media. Cold war propaganda politics are still a Religious affair to some partys :p

    • @Hiraghm sure as most all things human are not automatically anything definite (except stupidity perhaps :D) Plus vise versa Bad Capitalism isnt all Propaganda either is it? Thing is from great amount of experience we know what we can expect from American perspective, and we know what we can expect from Russian perspective and they are both bias and untrustworthy, from a future perspective these two parties have behaved Shamefully if not Criminally endangering the whole species with participating in stupid Mutually-Assured-Destruction games. IMO one should not patronise either viewpoint, its just generally a bad idea, Nobody really won the Cold war "Sá vægir sem vitið hefur meira" However through Public policy in popculture we keep being pushed a bogus historical interpretation of the Cold war as one more Kindegarden storylines of Good vs Evil, which is quite insulting for persons of Intelligence.

    • The interesting thing about propaganda is that it can be true; it's not automatically false. "Bad communists" because communists are bad, because communism is bad, because collectivism is bad.

  • Now I would’ve thought this would’ve been terrible, as licensed games are almost always awful, especially considering the studio, but I do love the way it’s isometric in style, I love that type of games. If I can get it cheap in a sale, I’ll totally buy it.

  • Bonusxp did a game based on season 2 on Android and iOS. Totally free, no ads or in app purchases. Was fantastic. Very much felt like a nes game. Tempted to buy this just cause I got so much out of the last game for free and this looks decent, plus couch co-op!

  • Same with me, if I get a retro style game I prefer it on Switch in portable mode so the pixels aren't insanely huge, anything else on PC if available. Still the loading times makes me wonder if I should choose PC here. Its a shame we can't have a full 3D Stranger Things game though, that would be insane but I guess the development time makes it impractical - Stranger Things will be old news by the time it finished development. And now you made me want to dig out Escape From the Planet of the Robot Monsters. If I recall correctly, its one of the few games back then I actually completed.

    • The first game is far more of a 90's 16 bit style game, not an 80s 8 bit style, but it's really good. Especially if you play it with a controller instead of touch controls. I played it on my TV on my Fire Stick with a bluetooth controller and it felt like a suped up HD quality SNES game. It's like a cross between Zelda and Earthbound with a Stranger Things coat of paint.
