Fans of the Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul are getting ready to say goodbye to the critically acclaimed series as it heads into its final episode next Monday. But while many are beginning to contemplate what on earth they’ll be doing with their lives after the finale airs, others are being a bit more productive with their time.
Take YouTuber LumpyTouch and artists Game Boy Demakes, for instance! As reported by our brand new sister site Time Extension, the creators have concocted a beautiful Game Boy adaptation of Better Call Saul that effectively “demakes” some of the show’s most iconic scenes.
The adaptation is strictly an animation at this time, so you sadly can’t actually play the game in any way, but it’s nevertheless a fantastic shot at capturing the show’s essence! You’ve got characters like Saul Goodman (or Jimmy McGill, if you like), Chuck McGill, Mike Ehrmantraut, Kim Wexler, and Gus Fring all making appearances in what looks like an entertaining mash up of side-scrolling platforming, shoot-em-up, and boxing gameplay.
We also can’t get over how perfect the show’s theme tune sounds in 8-bit form! Check out the video below for a glimpse at the “game” in action:
