The Great Gatsby Video Game

Stuck at work on a hot Friday in July? Why not play The Great Gatsby video game?

This GalleyCat editor frittered away valuable time this morning playing a point-and-click picture game that features narration from Jay, Daisy, and the Gatsby crew. The game combines the picture book hunting skills of Where’s Waldo? with the plot and decor of the classic novel. The company also has Agatha Christie games and Sherlock Holmes games.

Here’s more about the game: “Spend a summer on a jazz-fueled adventure based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s legendary novel. Experience the Roaring Twenties first-hand as you uncover secrets behind the richly decadent facade. Explore one of the most tragic tales in literary history.” (Via Vulture and Kathleen Schmidt)
