Weirdness: If Only The Dark Knight Was a Retro Game

"Wanna know how I got these scanlines?"

Just yesterday we shared the fact that there's a retro-styled Game of Thrones game, which draws inspiration from the TV show. To continue that theme we now have a video that recreates The Dark Knight as it would be in a retro game; this is a rather fun recreation of key events as they could work in a game of days gone by.

The work of CineFix as part of its "8-bit Cinema" series, this is pretty entertaining. Seeing previously epic sequences in a top-down retro style is certainly a quirky approach — not out of place considering all of the licensed Batman titles we were graced with in the '90s — and certainly gives them a fresh perspective. Perhaps the film will seem that 'bit' less dramatic from now on.
