Webgame Wednesday. Twilight: Eclipse Interactive

In case you didn't know (although I'm pretty sure you did), the latest film in the Twilight Saga opened in theaters today. I'm not the biggest fan of the mopey book/film series, so I was mighty tickled to find the 8-bit Twilight: Eclipse Interactive game on YouTube. Now, you're going to have to cut me a little slack on this one. It's not really a game. It's a series of linked YouTube animations, showing us what a crappy Twilight game would have looked like had it hit home consoles during the 8-bit NES era. The animations are interactive, though, and require you to click through certain "Choose Your Own Adventure"-type boxes at the end of each short video. Your choices lead you to the next video--which isn't all that different from crummy old point-and-click video games. The cutscenes are hilarious, giving the film the good solid ribbing it deserves.
