The answer to your procrastination prayers: The Great Gatsby, NES style

It took a lot of energy to not start crying at the thought of a platform game about my favourite novel, but I just about managed. After all, it’s hard to cry and control NES Nick Carraway running through Gatsby’s mansion, picking up bonus cocktails and shooting down waiters. This has to be one of the best things on the whole internet at this moment: a true work of art of a game that is so true to the novel and the NES style. Oh God it’s amazing. I’m going to go and play it again now (I haven’t got past the garden stage yet) and then I’m going to write to Charlie Hoey at The Barbarian Group, who made this incredible game, and thank him profusely. You should too.
