Weren’t we played or at least seen people go crazy over the Pokémon Go game. Catching Pokémons everywhere they go. It was literally driving people mad!
But well, it looks like the makers have partnered with Netflix to make an all new Stranger Things mobile game! And apparently it’s similar like Pokémon Go.
Hence, with the upcoming new season of the Stranger Things series, this game will definitely be equally crazy.
What’s the Stranger Things Game?
Finnish developer Next Games is partnering with Netflix for a Stranger Thingsmobile game that should appeal to Pokémon Gofans.
Simply called Stranger Things, the ‘80s cartoon-inspired game is described as a location-based puzzle RPG. Players will be able to walk around the Upside Down; and “work with fellow fans to fight back its emerging evils,” according to a press release. Next Games is using Google Maps integrations so players can explore their own neighborhood with friends.
What did the makers say?
“Our core focus will be to deliver on Stranger Things’ rich and intense themes like friendship and supernatural adventure, and translate these into snack-sized entertainment on your mobile device,” Teemu Huuhtanen, CEO of Next Games, said in a press release.
Next to Pokémon Go developer Niantic, Next Games is one of the foremost leaders in licensed, location-based games. The team also developed The Walking Dead: Our World, which uses Google Maps to create location-based gameplay objectives. Next Games’ Stranger Things is also completely separate from two previous Stranger Things games, which were in development with Telltale Games. Neither came to fruition after the company shuttered its doors suddenly last September.
Next Games’ Stranger Things is set to arrive in 2020 on iOS and Android. Although like all of us know and much like we mentioned earlier, the third season of the series will hit Netflix on July 4th.
