Weird Windows 1.0 Tweet was a Stranger Things 3 Promo


Last week, Microsoft confused a lot of folks when they tweeted some some cryptic Windows 1.0 related shit. Sure some smart folks were able to put the clues together, with most settling on some sort of Stranger Things 3 tie-in. Turns out that those people were “dead on balls accurate.”

Today, Microsoft announced the release of the Windows 1.11 app, which users can fiddle around with to unlock Stranger Things 3 related easter eggs.

Details from the Microsoft app store:

Experience 1985 nostalgia with a special edition Windows 10 PC app inspired by Windows 1.0—but one that’s been taken over by the Upside Down from Stranger Things. Explore the mysteries and secrets plaguing Hawkins, unlock unique show content and easter eggs, and play retro games and puzzles—all building off Stranger Things 3. Join Eleven, Steve, Dustin and gang as they seek to save Hawkins and the world. Embrace the 80s and grab your hairspray, because it’s basically the raddest show companion experience ever. But fair warning: beware the Mind Flayer.


Microsoft is also giving away a Stranger Things arcade cabinet to a lucky fan.

As a child of the 80’s I thoroughly approve of these tie-ins. With the wife and kids away for a few days, I plan to enjoy a binge watching session of this great show.
