The Great Gatsby If It Was An 8-Bit Video Game On The NES

The Great Gatsby

Have you ever wondered what The Great Gatsby would be like if it was an 8-bit video game released for the NES? Those who have read the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel know the contents of its pages are begging to be made into a video game. Now you can play as Nick Carraway, armed with a boomerang fedora in your very own side-scrolling Great Gatsby game. Nick's mission is to rid the word of butlers, flappers and crabs.

The folks at Great Gatsby Game have "found" this game at a garage sale. 

"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"

Fun fact: Shigeru Miyamoto named Princess Zelda after F. Scott Fitzgerald's wife, Zelda Fitzgerald.
