Like Wes Anderson, Jay Gatsby is not a name one immediately associates with video games. Expect that to change. Big Fish Games has released a PC game based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 novel. Here's the official game description, courtesy of the company's website (via New York Magazine's Vulture blog).
Join Nick Carraway as you explore the mansions and bungalows of Long Island, the parlors of New York City, and the heart and soul of the Roaring Twenties. Attend extravagant parties and lush gatherings as you dance the Charleston with a happy couple harboring scintillating secrets. Sip bootleg gin with a mysterious millionaire desperate to bring the passions of the past into the present in Great Gatsby, a fun Hidden Object game.
Sounds even better than "Grand Theft Auto: West Egg."
