The Hunger Games Gets Remade as an 8-bit Video Game Movie


The talented geeks over at CineFix have created another fantastic movie homage using old school video game technology. Their latest short features The Hunger Games remade as an 8-bit video game, but if you want to get anal you could probably argue that the remake is more of a 16-bit affair. I mean just look at those killer SNES graphics! Uber-fans of that console may also notice that the engine used in this 8-bit cinema project comes from Secret of Mana, one of the finest JRPGs to ever grace the States.

Anyway, the tribute is fantastic, and a perfect way to get ready for the release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which hits theaters on November 22, 2013. If you enjoy the 8 and 16-bit era of video games, and can’t get enough of Katniss Everdeen and friends, then you owe it to your creative side to check out the 8-bit Cinema version of the first film below.
