This Seinfeld Video Game Pitch is Lovably Weird

To the best of my knowledge, there hasn't been an official Seinfeld video game. (Yes, I'm talking about the classic sitcom.) Now, a pair of indie developers have pitched a strange adventure game in the hopes that it will get some real traction.

Check out the unofficial pitch for the Seinfeld game and experience all of the weirdness for yourself:

 

If you happen to be unfamiliar with Seinfeld, then you probably haven't watched much television in, say, the last 30 years or so. This was one of America's (and indeed, the world's) most popular sitcoms which originally ran from 1989–1998.

The show centered on Jerry Seinfeld and his strange cast of friends George, Kramer, Elaine, and a number of memorable recurring and guest characters. Now, a pair of inventive indie devs have reimagined Seinfeld as a lovingly-detailed point-and-click adventure game — and they need your help to make it happen.

Will This Seinfeld Video Game Actually Get Made?

One might wonder how indie devs Ivan R. Dixon and Jacob Janerka acquired the rights to the Seinfeld franchise. In short: they didn't.

 
 

"You may be thinking, 'You idiots, why would you make a game based on a sitcom that last aired over 20 years ago and potentially incur the wrath of lawyers like Reddit user Dingdongs313 warned you about?'" stated the game's official website. "But yes, OK, actual lawyers also warned us to not touch it."

Instead, they decided to take the risk and pitch this game out on the Internet. If they're able to get enough buzz, they might be able to make this game happen.

In total, they're aiming for a 30-minute point-and-click experience with an all-new, original plot, with the idea of there being the possibility of multiple episodes. You can read more about the Seinfeld video game on its official website.
