Turning Mad Max: Fury Road Into an 8 Bit Video Game

Back in August we shared with you CineFix’s great rendering of Hayao Miyazaki’s Princess Mononoke as an 8-bit video game. (Okay, you can’t technically play these 8 bit videos, so it’s more like they’ve been turned into old video game films).

The whole gang’s here, including the polecats, Furiosa, Nux, Immortan Joe and, of course, Mad Max himself.

CineFix are the best in the business at this.
