For the Book Nerds: The Great Gatbsy in 8-Bit

Posted on March 14, 2013 by

There’s only so much you can do as a Great Gatsby fan as you count down the days until the Buz Luhrmann’s movie adaptation finally reaches theaters.

You can read the book for the zillionth time, cos-play, listen to some old music to get you into the mood. Now you can play a video game version of the F. Scott Fitzgerald classic novel in 8-bit no less!

Developed by Charlie Hoey, you play as the book’s narrator Nick Carraway as he flings his hat at butlers and flappers. There are four levels, each with their own unique mission such as finding Gatsby at the party or defeating the laser shooting eyes of Dr. Eckleberg. Of course, the game also features the book’s most memorable character and quotes.

You can play the game HERE.

What do you think of this book-to-game adaptation?!
