When it comes to iconic pop culture, few names resonate as powerfully as Stranger Things. This Netflix series, set in the nostalgic '80s, has captured the hearts of viewers worldwide with its supernatural mysteries, beloved characters, and nods to classic horror and sci-fi films.


But what if you could take the essence of Stranger Things and infuse it into something as unexpected as a pinball machine? That's precisely what Mad Matt Design achieved with a personal commission for a custom side blade inspired by this Netflix phenomenon.

The Fusion of Netflix Magic and Pinball Fun

The canvas for this artistic endeavor was a pinball machine by Stern, renowned for its high-quality machines that cater to both pinball enthusiasts and fans of specific franchises. In this case, the focus was squarely on the Stranger Things theme.


The challenge? To create a piece of art that not only paid homage to the show's unique blend of supernatural horror and '80s nostalgia but also seamlessly integrated with the pinball machine's aesthetics. It was about fusing the magic of Netflix with the kinetic energy of pinball gameplay.


Artistry That Stays True to the Source

Mad Matt Design approached this project with deep respect for the source material. The goal was to capture the essence of Stranger Things – from the flickering lights of the Upside Down to the camaraderie of the young protagonists – and translate it into a visual masterpiece.


The result is a custom side blade that not only complements the pinball machine but also immerses players in the world of Hawkins, Indiana. It's a testament to the power of art to enhance entertainment, making each game of pinball an adventure through the supernatural.
