The Great Gatsby is now a video game..


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

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.

  • Wow i am so happy to read this article, because i am die-heart fan on video game.

  • I’d buy your version in a heartbeat, as long as half the dialog tree involves the phrase “old sport” and they use rag-doll physics when the car nails Myrtle.
