Welcome to Wild West Egg

Published on

Editor's Pick

Charlie Hoey, a developer at The Barbarian Group, wrote this game based on The Great Gatsby as a personal labor of love.

Created to look like a classic NES game (and with a clever 'back story' on the website claiming it was based on a game cartridge found in a yard sale), it involves helping hero Nick Carraway find the elusive Gatsby on a series of four different levels, starting with Gatsby's infamous party in West Egg - where waiters bearing drinks must be dodged.
