A Downton Abbey Super Nintendo game? I'm sure there isn't a huge market cross section between fans of British period dramas and vintage Super Nintendo gamers. Therefore, it's probably a good thing that this funny video isn't based on a real game and is played for some laughs.
It is pretty funny to image the elite aristocrats of Downton Abbey super-imposed in 16-bit form. The creator of the video, Bill Kiley, seems to imagine the events of Downton Abbey as a dialogue-based adventure game. Fans of the show will appreciate the clever winks to the source material in the dialogue scenes.
Gamers on the other hand, will appreciate the assets ripped from other classic video games like the butler character from the Home Alone 2 video game, or re-used backgrounds from horror game classic, Clock Tower.
