F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby is chock full o' symbolism, but what if you actually had to battle the laser eyes of Doctor T. J. Eckleburg? The folks over at Great Gatsby Game "found" a strange NES cartridge at a yard sale and were surprised to find that the game transformed Fitzgerald's prose into an 8-bit adventure about Nick Carraway killing flappers with his boomerang hat:
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.
You can play The Great Gatsby in full here. Burn West Egg to the ground!
