Season two of Stranger Things is creeping ever closer, and we鈥檙e gleefully devouring every teaser and trailer that gives us a glimpse at the retro-fabulous-yet-super-scary story to come. It鈥檚 been awhile since we were last in the Upside Down, though, so Netflix released a little refresher on the first season to ensure that you don鈥檛 miss out on any of the freaky details. And there鈥檚 no better way to zip through a summary of the 鈥80s-based show than with a video game-themed recap.

The recap uses clips from each episode as the 鈥渓evels鈥 of the game, with vintage synthesized beats and old-school in-screen boxes of text giving you options for how to play. Of course, you鈥檙e not able to actually make any selections 鈥 the choices have already been made by characters on the show.

When it鈥檚 time to 鈥淎TTACK鈥 or 鈥淪URRENDER,鈥 it鈥檚 Eleven鈥檚 trippy telepathic abilities that determine the ultimate selection. And when poor Barb is about to be snatched by the creature lurking in the darkness, we鈥檙e briefly given the choice to 鈥淪TAY HERE鈥 or 鈥淕O HOME鈥 鈥 but unfortunately for Barb, we know how that turned out.

Back off, mouthbreather. #StrangerThings #Netflix

Points are given for successful achievements (like distracting Will鈥檚 mom) and acts of bravery (like Will鈥檚 sister facing down a monster that鈥檚 about to burst through the wall), and necessary inventory is collected along the way (waffles, natch).

Stranger Things season two hits Netflix on October 27, so prepare yourself for more from the Upside Down and the dreaded Demogorgon just days before Halloween. So perfect!
