An original graphic novel based on the series called Stranger Things: Zombie Boys is scheduled to be released on February 19, It will be 72 pages and set after the first season. The kit, besides including instruction books, character sheets and dice, included a campaign "The Hunt for the Thessalhydra" which the children played in the first season written with the intent of having come from the pen of the character of Will himself as well as Demogorgon minifigs.
The game uses a retro-pixel style of art, similar to games for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. The game is loosely based on the Stranger Things story after season one, with the player starting as Chief of Police Jim Hopper looking for the missing boys. Once these characters are found, they become playable and have special abilities that allow the player to access more areas in the game. The team decided to make the game in a similar style to The Legend of Zelda because it "was a perfect match because both [ Stranger Things and Zelda ] are about exploration, and it's kind of a mysterious fit that fit the mood of the show," according to BonusXP president Dave Pottinger.
The map of Hawkins in the game was based on a Google street view map of Jackson, Georgia where the series is filmed. In order to help keep the game a secret, BonusXP did not hire game testers for their quality assurance , instead having family members from the design team provide feedback; this process helped create the two difficulty levels in the game.
With the release of season two, an update to the game added Max as a playable character, and a release for the Amazon Fire TV , which included controller support. It will be released as a tie-in for Stranger Things 's third season, launching on July 4, The game will follow the narrative of the third season, as BonusXP had some input with the Duffer brothers, and will provide additional story elements that the show does not have time to explore.
A third mobile game, simply called Stranger Things , is being developed by Next Games. It will be location-based game with role-playing game mechanics. The company has since released a teaser showing the Christmas-lights-on-a-wall scenes. In June , Netflix announced plans for Telltale Games to produce an episodic adventure game based on the series, as part of a larger partnership that would see ports of other Telltale series as interactive movies on Netflix. However, the project was cancelled after Telltale laid off the majority of its staff in September Telltale had also commissioned a companion game from Night School Studio titled Kids Next Door that would be a precursor to their title, but this also was canned on Telltale's closure.
United States Representative David Cicilline compared the state of the nation during the presidency of Donald Trump to that of Stranger Things during a speech given in Congress on February 16, , using a sign "Trump Things" in the same format as the title card of the series and saying "Like the main characters in Stranger Things , we are now stuck in the Upside Down". As part of its release on Netflix on April 14, , the cast of the rebooted version of Mystery Science Theater riffed on the first part of "Chapter 1" of Stranger Things.

Keep that creative juice of yours flowing!! PS Whats the blue guide on your sewing machine?? Everyone needs to try these. I, too, love blocks with half-square triangles in them.
Thanks for another freebie block:. These are the BEST! I have some and I love them! Of course, I can always use more! Merry Christmas. I am excited to hear you have a new line of Snowman Gatherings coming out! When I did Little Buds I absolutely relied on triangle papers for that little border! I would love to have all sizes on hand.
Your family is in my thoughts Holiday Blessings. Perfection, speed and simplicity—what could be better. I imagine this would really help for the smaller hst. I love how quickly you end up with a complicated looking block by following the lines, cutting and tearing. I thank you for having all the sizes in one place! These look so easy to use. Leave it to you Lisa to take something we all use and make it so much better!
Fantastic idea of sizing them for charm squares too: Thank you for working so hard to make quilters lives easier! I would never use anything else from there on. They were a breeze to work with and the borders came out perfect. Well worth the little bit of money spent. I avoided triangles for a long time because I found I never was consistently happy with the techniques or the results.
I am really impressed with your results and would love to try them! They look so easy! I have tried other brands but not those from Primitive Gatherings. I need to get some! My triangles never come out the way they should regardless of the method I use.
Definitely time that I try these out! I sure challenged myself without, doing the SAL. Looking forward to your other recommendations.

I love making half square triangles. The smaller, the better. Thanks for the chance to win some of these. I love triangle paper. You can make a block like the one Lisa showed larger or smaller by just changing the hat size without doing any math. Definitely a great thing to have for perfect half square triangles…your papers are awesome…especially in the small sizes.
The charm square papers are a great idea. I have used several different triangle papers with varied accuracy. I have enjoyed using them in the pieced stitch along. I loved your items last year and am excited to see what you have to offer this year! I used them in the SBOW and I really think they are fabulous, precise and very well interlocking on the seams, a really great invention. You inspired me to try these on small quilts. Yes, they are amazing!!!
Always great tips from PG! Just purchased your Triangle Gathering pattern. Need to get some of your new triangle paper to get started. Am very excited about your new store opening in Murrieta. All my quilts seem to have sawtooth borders! These would be great to have! My working on Words to Live By would be impossible without these papers.
Thanks Lisa for designing them. Thank you Lisa for designing them. Love the charm size papers. What an adorable little pin cushion the block you put together would make.
HST when made small can be so difficult, so thanks for showing the video on a much more precise way to do this with the triangle papers. So happy you made them for smaller sizes. I have not had the opportunity to use them as yet, but as soon as the holidays are over, I have promised myself to start turning out more miniatures using them. Thanks in advance, surely will make it a breeze to sew small!!!! Oh My Gosh!

With my busy life it is some times hard to find the precious time to do what I love to do and that is to quilt and to do wool applique. When I do have the time to quilt it is nice to know that triangle paper will now make quilting HST so much faster and easier. Just watched the video. I have used other brands and would like to try these. Great idea, cannot wait to try them.

Okay, the triangle papers for the charm squares are quite possibly the most clever thing I have seen in quilting in a long time!
The many are temporary, for a moment only; the one is perpetual. The finite and infinite can never be compared; they may naturally be contrasted. Christ did not intend to say that these many things had no value; but did intend to say that the one thing is not merely a good, but an indispensable good. As to those other things -- the many -- for which Martha was so careful, if He had no supper, no matter.
He could not forgive Martha for not giving herself up to what both she and Mary needed so much. It was a natural necessity that Martha should have Christ for her Savior. Nothing else can suffice, or can supply the want of this. Because if we have this one thing, we shall escape all that we need to fear as the consequence of our sins. Let us consider what this is and must be from its own nature. I often trace the different steps in the experience of different persons. Some seem to have always regarded God as their Father, but to have not seen Christ.
I mean, have not seen Christ in the sense of the hymn, I saw One hanging on a tree, In agony and blood;. It is one thing to estimate God as a Father, and another to see Christ. Seeing Christ in this sense is the natural result of being deeply convicted and of feeling frequent remorse for sin. This remorse for sin seems to be the indispensable condition of seeing and appreciating Christ as a Savior.
It is remarkable that remorse for sin always ceases with the exercise of true faith in Christ. It is worthy of enquiry -- Why is it that a saving knowledge of Christ not only gives the sense of pardon, but wipes out the dreadful remorse? So removes it that it is gone and cannot be found? Yet such is the fact. No one who has had this experience could ever afterwards doubt the reality of justification by faith -- so great is the power of believing on Christ on one's own state of mind. Remorse -- that most horrible condition of mind -- can never be expelled permanently, save by faith in the Lord Jesus.
With this faith there comes into the soul a blessed sense of peace and pardon. This expels remorse; nothing else can. Under this remorse, we are so displeased with ourselves that we cannot help feeling that God is angry against us -- not with malicious anger, but yet with such anger as crushed the spirit down -- a sense of God's infinite displeasure against sin. Put a man in heaven, he could not be happy there without this deliverance from remorse.
Think what despair is; estimate its unutterable agony, and then add to it this horrible, remorseful state of mind, and you have the consummation of sorrow and wretchedness. I have seen persons in despair who yet seemed not to be remorseful. They could not believe that God could forgive them; yet the keen gnawings of remorse were not there. But sometimes I have seen both these things together; and there was perfect misery!
How awful! How horrible! Those of you who have felt this have said -- I cannot live so five minutes; I cannot endure this crushing weight of woe! Sometimes the sense of one sin is enough to cut down and crush out all our life. How dreadful then it must be when sin after sin comes rushing down upon us with unendurable self-reproach and condemnation! Naturally this remorseful sense of sin is an ever growing quantity.
Suppose one to have it, going on from bad to worse. All the pain which the mind can inflict on itself it does with accumulating force, mountain on mountain; ocean on ocean. Sometimes one may suffer in body all the body can endure, but the soul be in perfect peace. This state I have known to continue a long, long time; but it is by no means to be compared with the horrors of remorse. No pains of body alone can be compared with the agonies of the soul. Besides this, think of soul-agony, enduring forever. Let the pain be ever so trifling, yet if there be no limitation of time -- if it can never end, how dreadful!
No matter whether it be a governmental infliction, or a natural consequence; in either case, the results are, beyond measure, awful. Now to suppose anything can be a good, compared with deliverance from such sin and from such consequences of sin, is utterly preposterous. All things in the comparison, are as nothing.
It is amazing to hear some men speak of religion. When you exhort them to become religious, they feel nothing. I met a man of this class some years since and said to him -- "Are you a religious man? Strange that men do not see that if religion is anything, it must be everything. If you have this one thing, you have everything of highest value; you have the great thing -- eternal holiness and happiness -- an enduring happiness gained, and an ever-growing misery escaped. O what an aggregate of solid misery and woe! All the misery of hell up to this day is nothing in the comparison with the prospective misery of one lost soul.
Accumulate all the miseries of war, pestilence and famine; pile them up heights over height; -- all is not to be compared with the misery of one lost soul in hell. You have often heard the illustration from the supposed case of an old bird who takes one sand from our globe -- supposing it to be all sand -- one each thousand years.
You say what an amazing period of time ere this globe will be exhausted. But still the soul of man lives on yet, after this globe has been exhausted of its matter and reduced to nothing -- losing one particle of sand each thousand years. And you may add still to this supposition that this same old bird removes another globe in the same way, and still another and another all the planets of our system and then the sun and then all the other suns which glitter only as stars to us because of their immense distance; let her take them all away -- all the stars and all the nebul -- one grain at a time and only one for each thousand years; let her go on till she has worn out ten thousand pairs of wings and ten thousand beaks -- what then?
Eternity is not exhausted. There has not been even a beginning made towards exhausting it. That little child, reposing in its mother's lap, shall outlive all the suns and all the planets of the universe. Suppose that little one, many years ago, had gone to heaven, and you were now to see him face to face and he could tell you what he has become; and how his mind has been expanding, and his heart become like Christ's; you see that he now knows more than you can conceive.
But let that little child go on still in the same career of progress, and the day will come when he will know more than all the angels of heaven know now. Suppose that you could see Mary -- that Mary who once sat at Jesus' feet -- as she is today -- not as she was then with her eye fixed on Christ and the tear quivering in it -- but as she is now. You would think her more than an angel, and almost divine. So glorious!
What a part that must have been which she then chose! Well might she forget everything else. O yes, for the Savior had come, and now is the time to rush to His feet and catch the words of life from His lips. And has He really come to offer her the peerless blessing? How then can she be expected to care much for the little things that so encumber Martha.
