Netflix took a big leap in bridging the gap by releasing their own VR content for their original series Stranger Things. For those of you that don’t know, Stranger Things revolves around the disappearance of a 12-year-old boy in small town Indiana and the subsequent uncovering of the truth as a sinister government agency tries to cover it up. All the while something more insidious lurks beneath the surface.
