This is for a school project at the moment; but I plan on taking it much further. It's going to lean on the ridiculous side, and you can quickly see why shortly after the game begins.

I've got three levels so far. It's going to have a multitude of branching storylines. Every choice you make makes a difference!

Official description of this release:
BETA v.0.1
How well do you remember The Great Gatsby? Your goal is to recreate the plot as accurately as possible. If you make a mistake and alter the plot, you never know what might happen...

This early version contains the first 3 levels. Level 3 contains a door that currently leads nowhere.

This is looking to be the best game I've ever made! I'm excited to hear feedback on this early version of the game! (NOTE: Be careful not to accidentally hit the S key while playing; it's there for debugging purposes. It won't do anything in the final version, be be wary of it for now.)

Teasers of some possible scenarios I plan to add (and the inherent ridiculousness should present itself):
(All of these things are dependent on choices you make earlier on. Little mistakes eventually add up to some bizarre scenarios, and more blasphemous actions quickly corrupt the storyline)

  • Gatsby leads a Nazi invasion as the Red Skull
  • Nick helps Einstein turn the moon into a Death Star
  • King Kong kidnaps Daisy and it's up to Gatsby to rescue her from the top of a skyscraper (Donkey Kong style)

Oh, I thought we were gonna get more sophisticated and discuss books. I loved reading the novel of The Great Gatsby!

I, too, greatly enjoyed reading the book! I plan on using that enjoyment to make a memorable experience in this game! It'll also be a bit of a quirky experience due to all the other weird stuff I plan on incorporating!

And @the_shpydar: I can rather confidently assure you that my game will be absolutely nothing like that game! (Well, apart from the name, of course)

...Yep, my brain has stopped functioning due to my utter amazement at something like this existing. God bless you, crazy Gioku.

Wow, I'm frankly surprised others enjoyed the novel as much as I did. Here's to the most banned book in America~ But seriously, Gioku, you just one soooooooo many Happy points, make it happen bro! I'm rooting for ya!

Thanks guys! I'm really proud of this so far! Should be a new update later today, with a few new things.

@Happy_Mask: I was unaware that the book was banned anywhere. My English teacher seems to hail it as the greatest american novel ever written! He says he sometimes feels like he knows Fitzgerald personally... that's not creepy at all 0_o

Anyway, I hope you all appreciate that I've found a use for the sprites from one of the worst games that was ever made!

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention: I'm in the market for crazy ideas! If you have any, I'd really appreciate hearing them!
I'm also hoping to find a way to fit in the sentence: "Alien walruses fall from the sky".

@k8sMum: The Grapes of Wrath also got banned a lot.
@Nobodys_Angel: Thanks!
I haven't worked on this at all recently, but I'm getting a laptop soon. With a laptop (and summer vacation), I expect this project to really take off!

@gioku

yeah, but the thing is that Twain's book has had a lot longer to be banned. sorry: i love this sort of trivia.
