'Freaks and Geek's 8-bit 'video' game: Play it!
Still don’t a give a damn ’bout your bad reputation?
Sigh! Neither do we. Though Freaks and Geeks was cancelled after 12 episodes, we’re still not over NBC’s cult hit about Michigan teens in 1980.
Thankfully, neither are The Fine Brothers — who have created an interactive YouTube game in the style of 8-bit video games and Choose You Own Adventure books. In other words: It is freaking awesome. The game takes place at William McKinley High School, where Lindsay Weir, in signature Army jacket, must choose between team Millie and the Mathletes or team Daniel and his crew on the patio. Choose wisely, lest you risk social suicide.
Their game even caught the attention of Freaks and Geeks creator Paul Feig:
According to The Fine Brothers’ Facebook page, there’s a Geeks version coming soon.
We’ll meet you on the patio. But play this first, poser.
