Update: I reached out to composer Jimmy Hinson in the hopes of learning how this unlikely mashup came to be. In a message, Hinson said: "One of the music coordinators for the show reached out to me out of the blue and said they found my song on Bandcamp and wanted to use it for a Netflix show ... I didn't receive actual official confirmation until about a week before the air date though, so I actually kinda thought it fell through. It's funny because the show is developed under a code name and while the description of the usage is in the contract, it's really super vague, so even with 'context' I didn't really know anything. Stuff like 'two friends are talking and comfort each other.' So you can imagine how thrilled I was when I learned that the mystery show was actually Stranger Things 2."I still don't know how they found that specific track, buried deep in a soundtrack of a game that is not especially well known, even in the indie games community. But I'm … [Read more...] about Stranger Things season two features a song from this voice-controlled indie strategy game
Stranger Things was one of the most surprising hits of 2016, a strange Netflix exclusive series that seemed tailor made to become a cult classic but instead found a much broader audience.

Instead of an official game, fans of the series have so far had to settle on its impressively creative fan base crafting loving homages to Stranger Things. Penney Pixels, a YouTube content creation channel, spoofed Stranger Things a LucasArts-style adventure game about nine months ago, and the impressively made video is finally getting the … [Read more...] about Stranger Things Reimagined as LucasArts Adventure Game
