‘The Shawshank Redemption’ Remade as an 8-Bit Adventure Game
Andy Dufresne crawled through a point-and-click river of s--- and came out clean on the other side in this amazing, 8-bit retelling of The Shawshank Redemption.
The talented crew at CineFix have posted their latest 8-bit remake of another classic movie. This time, they're taking on The Shawshank Redemption, Frank Darabont's spectacular prison film based on the Stephen King novella, Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption. Darabont is recently known for developing and producing season one of AMC's The Walking Dead and the first half of season two. Surprisingly, he also directed The Green Mile, another Stephen King prison tale which is often considered the companion story to The Shawshank Redemption. This makes us wonder how different season three of TWD would have been with Darabont at the helm.
The team at CineFix made the excellent decision to remake The Shawshank Redemption as a retro, point-and-click adventure game. We get to see everything, including Andy Dufresne's incarceration, the courtyards meeting with Red, teaching Tommy how to read, the rooftop beer scene with Captain Hadley and that unforgettable sequence outside of the sewer pipe. We're surprised at how well everything works as a point-and-click title, even when Andy had to manually cover up his escape tunnel with the poster of Rita Hayworth and hide the rock hammer in his bible.
We can't wait to see if the guys at CineFix make an 8-bit version of Avengers: Age of Ultron based on Shovel Knight's format. Either that or Mad Max: Fury Road redone using a visual style similar to Out Run.
