Be Don Draper: Mad Men is now an 8-bit Choose Your Own Adventure YouTube game

Gaming, Tech Digest news, YouTube Video of the Day

After far too long off our screens, Mad Men returns to TV this week, with Season 5 airing in the US on AMC Sunday 25th March and Sky Atlantic in the UK on Tuesday 27th March.

To get you in the whiskey-swilling, chain-smoking mood, The Fine Brothers (purveyors of interactive YouTube videos) have put together this amazing 8-Bit homage to both the series and the classic Choose Your Own Adventure books of the 1970s.

Rather than flicking through pages, the YouTube video full of embedded links to other clips, playing out the different paths of the branching storyline.

Comprising over 40 different segments, leading to three different endings, you can even play as Peggy, Pete and Betty, as well as the smooth-talking Don Draper.

It’s hilarious, inventive and well worth a look if the first episode of Series 5 still feels a long way off.
