Retro ‘Mad Men’ Game Gives Don Draper the 8-Bit Treatment
We love ‘Mad Men,’ but a drama about boozy ad execs set against the backdrop of the early 1960s isn’t exactly fun subject material for a video game. Nonetheless, YouTube’s FineBros have made an interactive video series which puts you in the shoes of Don Draper as he sets out to fulfill an objective given by fellow drunkard Roger Sterling. Everything get’s the 8-bit graphic makeover – even the in-game drinking.
Depending on who you choose among ‘Mad Men’ characters Pete, Peggy and Betty, the game continues to play out in various scenarios based on the choices you make. There are over 40 videos offering several possible scenarios, offering a truly interactive experience. From the 8-bit graphics to the clever references for Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce geeks, the makers really make us wish this ‘Mad Men’ video game came with a home edition.
