Netflix Made an 8-Bit Infinite Runner Video Game Out of Its Most Popular Original Shows

With Stranger Things, and stranger still, Marco Polo


Looking for procrastination candy? Netflix has launched the Flix Arcade, an 8-bit infinite runner game that's about as simple and uncomplicated as your fond memories of the '80s.

Created by The Glitch in Mumbai, India, the game lets you play Pablo Escobar from Narcos, Piper Chapman from Orange Is the New Black, Mike Wheeler from Stranger Things, or Marco Polo from Marco Polo—odd, given that the latter show was canceled in December. 

But points for nostalgia.
