Here's what the Stranger Things 8-bit video game could look like

Stranger Things is our new obsession. Seriously. Just search for it on our site and you'll see our adoration for Netflix's Eighties sci-fi drama writ large all over the results. Not seen it? Then stop reading this. 

For those who've ploughed through its eight perfectly formed episodes - good job. You may be interested to hear that its creators are interested in bridging the series and its upcoming sequel with a video game.

Speaking to IGN, Ross Duffer said: "What I really want is a video game. Like an 8-bit… These fans, a lot of them have done this 8-bit video game art that’s blowing my mind." 

To which you'll probably say: "Which fans? Where? Give us this 8-bit video game art. Blow our minds!" 

Have a scroll through the below and let that blown mind ponder on what might get created, should the Duffer Bros. get their way.
