The Great Gatsby and Waiting for Godot: The Video Game Editions

Some genius­es have tak­en two lit­er­ary clas­sics and reworked them as retro video games. The Great Gats­by Game, obvi­ous­ly based on the clas­sic by F. Scott Fitzger­ald, reworks the game in vin­tage Nin­ten­do Style. The clip above gives you a lit­tle pre­view, but you can always play the game right here. Then, for a lit­tle more absur­dist fun, the Wait­ing for Godot Game awaits you. The game, sport­ing a throw­back 70s look, requires you to down­load a plu­g­in — one we can’t vouch for. So may just want to watch this YouTube clip. You’ll get the schtick pret­ty quick.

By the way, you can read both clas­sics online — Find The Great Gats­by here, and Wait­ing for Godot here. Both are list­ed in our col­lec­tion of Free eBooks.
