Stranger Things may have embraced its 1980s setting and aesthetic, but an animated remake is taking the ’80s vibe a step further.

A new “8 Bit Cinema” short from Cinefix reimagines the popular Netflix series as a classic role-playing video game. Turns out, it’s a perfect fit.

Will, Mike, Dustin, and Lucas all possess special skills, but none as special as Eleven’s. The Byers household plays a midi version of The Clash’s “Should I Stay or Should I Go.” A less-nuanced Steve plays the bad boy. The demogorgon is still terrifying. And El sacrificing herself to save the boys is just as sad.
