Microsoft’s new Windows 1.11 app is a “Stranger Things” Tribute!
July 9, 2019
Take a trip back to 1985 with Microsoft’s new Windows 1.11 app that’s really a tribute of sorts to Stranger Things!
The Stranger Things themed game gives you the chance to save the world with the recreated version of Windows 1.0. Think Paint, Write, and the original Windows cmd prompt! Interestingly, the game is set in the summer of 1985 just like the TV show, however Windows 1.0 didn’t actually release until November 1985.
Watch the promo for Microsoft Windows 1.11 Stranger Things 3 app here.
The new app is described on the Microsoft Store as “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.”
You can download the app the Microsoft Store (look for the “Jump back to summer 1985” collection). So, who’s ready for a nostalgia trip?👾
