If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve binged your way through “Stranger Things” at least once and are looking for a way to extend your deep dive into the early-’80s world the Netflix series constructed.
Luckily, the streaming service had a feeling you’d want more and has gone the extra mile, creating a virtual reality experience that puts you in the shoes of Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) as you explore the Byers’ family home trying to find her son Will (Noah Schnapp).
The new “Stranger Things” online experience allows you to use your phone — and Google Cardboard headset — to create a virtual reality environment that will quite possibly scare you half to death. What’s the point of having a Demogorgon monster if you can’t use it to terrify viewers at any given moment? The experience is also viewable on your computer, without the full virtual reality immersion.
The cast and creators of the series played played a modified version of the experience at the 2016 summer TCA press tour, powered by an Oculus headset, and as the video above shows, experiencing “Stranger Things” is no laughing matter.
If you want to get an idea of what you’re in for with the “Stranger Things” online experience you can take a look at the scene it was based on. Then again, you could also jump right in and see if you can survive a night in the Byers’ house. If you think you have what it takes, view the video below in your Google Cardboard headset.
