8-Bit Dr. Horrible Act 1

Share Collapse

Author Comments

This is act 1 of 3 of my 8-Bit Dr. Horrible project.

All music, sound effects, graphics and animation for "Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Game" were created by me as a tribute to Dr. Horrible (by Joss Whedon) and the NES. You can download the full 8-bit soundtrack from my website (follow the link in my profile and click on the Dr. Horrible banner at the top of the blog posts).

Programs used in the creation of this animation:
Graphics: Adobe Photoshop
Animation: Adobe Flash
Sequencing: FL Studio
Instruments: NES+MidiNES
Mastering: Adobe Soundbooth
Sound Effects: SFXR

Note: This is not an actual game as of now but there are interested parties that I may be working with to create one eventually. Also, I realize there are spelling and continuity errors so please don't bother commenting on those - while not all intentional, I chose to leave them in since a lot classic Nintendo games had similar issues and I thought it added extra authenticity to the project.

If this was a real game I'd shove my face in it and drown. I do seriously hope that this is made to be. I will be waiting hopeful to play as an NES NPH soon. I think this is only because I to have a mad crush on Felicia Day. I will however need to move to New York where our marriage would be legal... I'd also need to talk her into it... Technicalities. Tangent over - actual point - WTB game.


really did. i just got more and more pissed as i watched. this admission is so long and it is time of my life i cant get back. epic fail. please dont make another.


Good idea, but executed poorly, an A for effort D for execution.


I loved the movie.. I wish this actually was playable, though. Seems epic!

Brings back memories

I like it. A great nostalgia bomb for me. Even though I couldn't play, I could watch along for hours. Great job.
