‘Stranger Things’ on a monochrome monitor is so perfectly ’80s

Let’s all thank the internet for Wahyu Ichwandardi‏, an illustrator and animator who thought it would be a good idea to recreate the Stranger Things intro on a monochrome monitor from the 1980s.

Spoiler alert: it was a good idea.

Ichwandari built his green-and-black Netflix homage using an actual Apple IIc computer and Dazzle Draw, a bitmap paint program from 1984. Only the latest and most powerful technology to make this!

He documented his building process in a series of posts captured in a Twitter moment. It’s all so gloriously lo-fi, and yet this was what personal computing looked like for most during the Stranger Things decade.

You can keep up with Ichwandardi’s work @pinot on Twitter.
