“Mad Men” is coming back this Sunday, so the Internet is currently flooded with news and content related to the show (most notably, Jon Hamm’s war on the Kardashians). We’ll do our best to filter things out and post only the best of the best, but it’s getting close to the weekend and it’s supposed to be like 75 degrees tomorrow here in the Northeast, so, you know, keep that in mind. I may just draw a stick figure with giant boobs and a text box that says “Hi, I’m Joan from ‘Mad Men,’” and leave it up all afternoon. I’m a pretty great blogger.
All that said, here’s an 8-bit, Choose Your Own Adventure game someone made based on the show. It’s pretty cool, and, at the very least, it’s a decent way to waste a half hour at work. The only bone I have to pick is that the way to increase Don’s “Inner Peace” levels is through a storyline involving Betty. That’s ridiculous. The only way “inner peace” and “Betty Draper” should be in the same sentence is if that sentence ends with “so Don packed her into a cannon with like five pounds of gunpowder, shot her all the way to the moon, and lived happily ever after.”
