I don't know about the game but the 3rd season has been fantastic so far. Have to watch the last two episodes tonight.

It evokes Goonies for me, circa 1986. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U26HZPvqi2M,
Of course this game will be vastly superior to anything on PC 1986.

I have actually heard about that series only a week ago.
I don't have the slightest idea how that could escape me.

You haven't heard of stranger things? That's strange. I guess it is the most talked about show on Netflix the past years.

I was wondering if you did see Dark (German show)? I heard the last season especially is excellent.

Stranger things is quite cool. Though I prefer the first season over the second quite a bit.
Thirteen just became too much of the "cool kid" and the center of the show. Haven't checked out the third one yet. The game has nice graphics but the gameplay doesn't look very appealing and also far away from the series.

Regarding Dark: Also highly recommended (at least to German Audience, cannot judge how that is as non-native German speaker). But I prefer the first season over the second as well, as it has more of this nostalgia flair. The second season takes this mix of time periods as pretty mich granted. It's still good though.

I'd no idea there was a game based on the show, I'll have to check out some reviews and see what they think of it. The co-op features do nothing for me, but if the single player experience is solid, that might hook me in.

Price, passing on this game.

About the Dark tv show; it was good but like Les Revenants better. Shows are very similar.

I definitely liked the third season better than season two. Nothing can really beat season one for me though because back then everything was still a mystery.

I played the first game on my Ipad, it was cute. Definitely an 80s feel to it. Don't think I played it for more than 2 hours or so though before I'd had enough.
