Microsoft recently posted a teaser for Windows 1.0 on its official Twitter account. The speculations suggested that the promotion had some ties with the Netflix show Stranger Things.

Now the Microsoft watcher @WalkingCat confirmed that the latest edition of the Stranger Things is linked with the upcoming announcement on July 8.

The tech giant just released a brand new app named Windows 1.11 on the Microsoft Store. This edition is based on the classic Windows 1.0 with a special twist of Stranger Things.

The app is basically a game that is released as a part of Microsoft’s promotion strategy for Stranger Things season 3. It starts with a classic Microsoft Windows title and uses a command line interface to boot on your system.

The application is 775 MB in size and runs on Windows 10 version 10240.0 or higher. However, you can not download the game at the moment.

According to the official teaser, the game is expected to be released on July 8.



Microsoft Store describes the game as follows:

Quote
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 most rad show companion experience ever. But fair warning: beware the Mind Flayer.


One Windows users noticed that the game was initially listed as “FREE” on Microsoft Store. There is an image to support the statement.

Quote
In the beginning, there was a word and the word was “get for FREE”, and then it became, buy Windows 1.11!




This is a pretty cool promotional tactic from Microsoft to fuel up excitement for Netflix’s show. You will get a rare opportunity to sneak into the first version of Windows.
