Seinfeld Might Be Getting the Point-and-Click Video Game Treatment
It'll be the ultimate game about nothing, obviously.
Whether your fridge-shaped DVD box set is looking a little worse for wear, or you've spent too much time streaming the series in your spare time, we could all use a little more Seinfeld in our lives — and one Australian indie game developer is hoping to help. If Jacob Janerka's side project comes to fruition, playing a game about nothing could be as simple as pointing and clicking your way around your computer screen.
Janerka's Seinfeld game has been mooted for the past couple of years; however the Perth-based fan released an updated compilation of potential artwork just before Christmas. Familiar characters, settings and scenes all get the pixelated treatment, including Jerry greeting Newman and the potential to play as the Soup Nazi. Here's hoping that Elaine's distinctive dancing style is next.
Before Seinfeld lovers start getting excited about wandering around a parking garage, enjoying Festivus or shouting "yada, yada, yada" — or seeing anything else from the series' 180-episode run make the leap onto your computer screen — Janerka has been waiting until he has a decent premise before progressing further. Or, in other words, he wants to ensure that it isn't really about nothing. In the interim, he has had his hands full with the indie adventure game Paradigm, which takes players through a post-apocalyptic world inhabited by the titular mutant and a genetically engineered sloth that vomits candy.
