Stranger Things is the Netflix original series that has achieved a 100% rating from viewers and looks to be the Netflix series of the year. Today Netflix released Stranger Things virtual reality (VR).
Like a mashup of the Goonies and the X-Files, Stranger Things stars Winona Ryder (Joyce Byers), who lives in a small town in Indiana. Joyce’s 12-year-old son, Will, mysteriously vanishes, launching a terrifying search.
During the two minute 360 clip, you will become Joyce, in the middle of dark a ghostly alien experience. Feel the hairs on your neck prick as lights spark, phones ring, and something is trying to communicate with you.
“Stranger Things is a uniquely atmospheric series that inspired us to create a fun way to immerse viewers in the rich world, allow them to experience the thrills and mystery of the story and excite them to watch the series.” VP of Product Innovation, David Jaffe
Stranger Things VR is a small but exciting step towards immersive VR content for Netflix. It will be interesting to see how the story unfolds. Watch the experience below with Cardboard or Gear VR.
