Remember that odd teaser about Windows 1.0 earlier this week? Those who guessed it was a tie-in for Stranger Things’ third season were correct.
Microsoft is releasing Windows 1.11, a game that transports players back to 1985 through the GUI of a classic OS. It’s essentially a point-and-click adventure filled with references to Netflix’s hit show.
The app was accidentally released earlier than intended but has since been taken down. Those who weren’t fortunate enough to grab it can do so on July 8.
Experience 1985 nostalgia with a special edition Windows 10 PC app inspired by Windows 1.0—but one that’s been taken over by the Upside Down from Stranger Things. Explore the mysteries and secrets plaguing Hawkins, unlock unique show content and easter eggs, and play retro games and puzzles—all building off Stranger Things 3. Join Eleven, Steve, Dustin and gang as they seek to save Hawkins and the world. Embrace the 80s and grab your hairspray, because it’s basically the raddest show companion experience ever. But fair warning: beware the Mind Flayer.
