Beckett meets Atari

Perfect for a lazy Sunday....Waiting for Godot: The Video Game.




Actual game platform here. But I still can't figure out how to "play" it. Unless the joke is...there really is "nothing to be done" and whoever can best stand the boredom wins.

Naturally the young gamester has already received cease-and-desist letters from the Beckett estate.  More here.

I just want to add: the pop culture reach of "Waiting for Godot" - from KD Lang to Waiting for Guffman - never ceases to amaze me. What would Beckett have thought?

I'm still waiting for the tv special with the cast of Seinfeld. Jerry and George as Didi and Gogo; Newman and Kramer as Pozzo and Lucky. Elaine, the Boy.
