Wow, is this my SECOND “The Great Gatsby“-related post in a single day? Dang, I’m on a roll. Kaiser. Toasted. With butter. Anyway, with the release of the official trailer to the next film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby” set to be released on Christmas Day this year, I figured that this would be a great time to revisit one of my favorite online flash games from the past few years. The game itself is an 8-bit version of The Great Gatsby, made as a tribute to old-school NES games, and was created and developed by Charlie Hoey and editor Pete Smith.
The 7th recognized film translation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic 1925 novel, The Great Gatsby, is scheduled to be released on December 25, 2012 (INNNNN THREEEEEE-DDDDDDDDD; why?). The Great Gatsby is an American romantic drama film directed by Baz Luhrmann (director of William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge), and will star Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan, and Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway (the original novel’s narrator). Check out the trailer after the break.
