'The Hunger Games' Gets an 8-Bit Makeover


8-bit Hunger Games

We've posted a few different 8-bit renditions of popular movies here on FEARnet this year, fun fan-made videos that have showed us what it'd look like if movies such as Lucio Fulci's Zombie and The Shining had been given their very own Nintendo games.  This week, in celebration of the weekend's release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the makers of the faux Shining video game are back at it again, this time giving the 8-bit treatment to Katniss and the gang.

Though you can't play the game, you can watch along as key scenes from the movie are recreated in 8 glorious bits, courtesy of the folks over at YouTube channel CineFix.  Check out the gameplay video below - no quarters or controllers required!
