Dr. Horrible – The 8-Bit Video Game

Posted by Rampant Coyote on April 7, 2010

It’s just… wrong. In a cool way. Though I imagine Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion might get a kick out of seeing themselves rendered as characters in an NES game.

Okay, so I wouldn’t expect to see this as an actual playable game anytime soon. But it’s cool.

And if you have absolutely no clue what this is about…

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog was produced during the Hollywood writer’s strike a couple of years back. It was an experiment by Joss Whedon & friends to produce a high-quality made-for-Internet mini-series that bypassed the traditional studios completely. Yeah, an indie production. It won the 2009 Hugo for Best Dramatic Presentation (Short Form), and has also won a People’s Choice award and a Primetime Creative Arts Emmy. And apparently it made enough money through in DVD, iTunes, and other merchandise¬† sales to warrant a sequel, which is in the works.

You can watch Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog from Netflix Instant-Play, or buy the DVD / Blu-Ray, or you can watch a low quality version of Act 1, Act 2, and Act 3.
