The Great Gatsby Nintendo Game

Some brilliant artists have re-imagined F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s The Great Gatsby as a Nintendo game from the late 1980s. Above, we’ve embedded a screen-shot from the crazy project.

Follow this link to play the game (complete with 8-bit graphics and tinny soundtrack). According to the website, this wonderful bit of fan fiction was discovered at a yard sale. We are a bit skeptical about this creation myth, but it is a lovely piece of fan fiction.

Here’s more from the site: “If anybody has more info about this please let me know ! As it is, I really don’t know much about this game. I found it at a yard sale. I bought it for 50 cents and went home to try it out. After dusting off my NES for like, 20 minutes I got it working, and jesus. So weird. Apparently it’s an unreleased localization of a Japanese cart called “Doki Doki Toshokan: Gatsby no Monogatari”, but I haven’t found anything about that either. What’s left of the manual was just rubberbanded to the cartridge. I finally scanned them.” (Via io9)
