Things are Strange in the '80s: A Virtual Reality Experience

THINGS ARE STRANGE IN THE 80's is an interactive, first-person, virtual reality experience that allows you to experience the setting of Netflix’s hit TV show Stranger Things through a more critical lens. The decade of the ‘80s saw one of modern society’s larger, and most significant struggles. In this experience, we are presenting the user with the opportunity to empathize with an LBGTQ character by putting them in their shoes. The user would then experience discrimination within the school setting; a theme explored by the show itself.
