Finnish game developer Next Games announced a free-to-play mobile game title based on the hit Netflix original series "Stranger Things." The location-based puzzle RPG game is currently slated for release in 2020 on iOS and Android platforms. The mobile game will reimagine the Stranger Things universe in the style of an 80's Saturday morning cartoon. Through location-based mechanics and Google Maps integration, players can explore The Upside Down hidden around them in their daily travels and work with fellow fans to fight back its emerging evils, Next said. Teemu Huuhtanen, CEO, Next Games, commented, "We are huge fans of Stranger Things and thrilled to work together with Netflix to bring our shared vision of Stranger Things into life in a mobile game format. 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. Combined with Netflix's second-to none ability to reach audiences across the globe, we will deploy all of our accumulated creative and technological expertise to create a game for the fans of the series all around the world."
