Dr. Horrible In An 8-Bit Theater Near You

Have you ever wondered what Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog might look like on the NES? Well, at least one person has, and he made it himself. Doctor Octoroc, a digital artist and musician, has recently pretty much appropriated the entire first act of the Joss Whedon viral masterpiece into 8-bit RPG style reminiscent of The Legend of Zelda. Apropos, he’s called it Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Game. Felicia Day, who played Penny in the movie, raved via her Twitter, calling it the “BEST THING EVER!”

Doctor Octoroc has pretty much captured the essence of the original short while recreating Whedon’s world in the way we might have seen it back in say 1988. The project looks rather playable, too, with a complete overworld and dancing sprites. Look out for Acts 2 and 3 in the coming weeks.
