Stephen King’s IT Has a Paper Boat Retro Game Now Available to Play Online
Very soon, a new generation of movie-watchers will be introduced to the terror that is Pennywise the Clown. The first of the two new films that will adapt Stephen King’s It novel is set to release next month. Aside from Pennywise, many of the recognizable items from the novel and previous tv film adaptation will be present in the new film, according to the trailers released, including the red balloons and the opening scene George Denbrough’s paper boat floats along a rainy street and ends up in a sewer drain occupied by the crazy clown himself. Now, fans can relive this scene in an unexpected way with a new paper boat retro game.
The new retro-inspired game is available to play on the It movie official website. The 8-bit style game is a bit of a nod to the 1989 setting of the upcoming film, which the main kid characters in the film would likely play. Players control George’s paper boat as it swims in the town’s sewer system, as they avoid drain pipes, rocks, and Pennywise himself. Keeping with the familiar imagery, the goal is to see how many red balloons the player can pop with the boat before losing their three lives.
The game is pretty simple and minimalistic, but its dark setting, 8-bit rendition of Pennywise and frequent use of his iconic laugh make this an interesting bit of marketing for the film. It is good to see that new generations of kids will learn of the iconic clown horror figure. What do you guys think about this It-inspired paper boat retro game? Let us know in the comments below!
