There is a natural inclination to see the similarities between shows such as "Stranger Things" and movies like "Goonies" or "E.T." and this RPG. But are there other shows we can draw on for influence? Is it possible to mine a film like "Stand By Me" (1986) for ideas? Can we even look at films like "Brick" (2005) to get inspiration for a more noir mystery set in a school?
And, in thinking about Simon Stålenhag's art, was there other artists and/or paintings that we can use to conjur an image of the world that is being created?
