Yes, there is a 16-bit mock-up of Downton Abbey and it is the best game you’ll never get to play!

Can footman Thomas Barrow save the abbey? We don’t know, because this graphic-adventure adaptation of everyone’s favorite T.V. show about snooty British butlers isn’t real. Chiptune composer Bill Kiley had the brilliant idea to lay down an 8-bit version of Downton Abbey’s theme, and he took the liberty to cobble together a mock-up teaser for a game, borrowing graphics from the awful, awful Home Alone 2 game. This is definitely something we’d play! So PBS, game jammers, Double Fine (!!!), someone, anyone, if you’re reading this, do it!
