All is not well in the upside down marketing world of Stranger Things. While Stranger Things season 4 on Netflix has been a hit, fans aren't so keen on the NFT game used to extend its lore. Some of them because it's supported by NFTs, while others just can't excuse the fact it won't work on mobiles.

Developed by Candy, the Stranger Things NFT game enables players to collect new posters of their favourite characters as non-fungible tokens. NFTs are a way to register digital files on a blockchain, in this case the low-carbon Palm token, and so create rarity. You can find out more in our What are NFTs? feature, and even pick up some advice on creating your first NFT with artist Stephen Bliss.
