Published 11/08/2022, 11:30 AM EST

Stranger Things is to Netflix what Walt Disney is to Disney. The series is a brilliant kombucha of horror, mystery, and science fiction genre, and premiered in 2016, skyrocketing to global popularity. To date, no other series has managed to surpass the viewership rating of the show, which has a total of 188 million views every hour. Set up in the fictional town of Hawkins in Indiana, United States, the series is well on its way to becoming a brand.

Looks like paranormal experiments giving rise to superhumans with psychokinetic and telepathic abilities is not the only thing that the US Department of Energy is doing because Netflix just announced a VR game inspired by it. On November 6, which has been designated as “Stranger Things Day” by the OTT Mughal, it was announced that a Stranger Things VR game is in the making.
