We may have a few more weeks to wait before we can watch the next season of Stranger Things, but today you can download a Stranger Things mobile game that lets you explore Hawkins and its surroundings in glorious pixel art.

The game is available today for free (with no in-app purchases) on the IOS App Store and Google Play.

Stranger Things: The Game includes seven playable characters, six dungeons to explore and more than 30 quests to complete. Locations in the game include Mirkwood Forest, Hawkins Lab, and Jim Hopper's home.  There are also Eggos to find, two game modes, an unlockable trailer and an update for the game expected to hit on October 27th, along side season two of the show.
