Oculus VR short 'Henry' wins an Emmy

I'd take a Stranger Things adventure game

Artist Jacob Janerka took a break from developing his game Paradigm to mock up this homage to the recent Netflix darling Stranger Things. The fairly-non-cloying ode to 80s adventure flicks (it's Goonies-ish and references Star Wars a lot) ...   read
