Yup, it’s happened – someone has taken The Great American Novel and made it into A Middling American Computer Game. The Great Gatsby by Scott Fitzgerald is now an online game, available with a free trial on iplay.com.
A “hidden object game” it doesn’t sound like it will be getting awards for gameplay any time soon…
“Join Nick Carraway as you explore the mansions and bungalows of Long Island, the parlors of New York City, and the heart and soul of the Roaring Twenties. Attend extravagant parties and lush gatherings as you dance the Charleston with a happy couple harboring scintillating secrets. Sip bootleg gin with a mysterious millionaire desperate to bring the passions of the past into the present in Great Gatsby, a fun Hidden Object game.”
Though it does boast that it is the only hidden object game to get a full score from Gamezebo.
And hey there’s a jazz soundtrack. You didn’t get that with the book.[releaselog, via nymag]
