- It will have have a style like an '80s cartoon.
At E3 2019, Next Games and Netflix announced the development of a game based on the hit television series Stranger Things. No time frame has been announced just yet but we should hear more about it in the coming weeks.
In a press release Teemu Huuhtanen, CEO, Next Games had this to say:
Next Games are no Strangers (get it?) to location-based games, as they are the developers of The Walking Dead: Our World.
Our World is a location-based game that features the walkers from the TV show. It's pretty good, and the zombie mechanic is exciting and sometimes scary. If Next Games can bring all its skills to bare it could have a huge hit on its hands.
See you in the Upside Down!
