The Simpsons is filled with bizarre jokes, and some of them are about video games, such as the time Millhouse played a Waterworld game. Now you may play it!
Waterworld is set to star Kevin Costner in the next episode of The Simpsons, which features a post-apocalyptic world where water levels have increased in the year 2500, and Millhouse is required to pay 40 quarters, a regular amount to play for an arcade game. And now indie developer Macaw45 has made it actually playable, as it was a modest joke in the previous episode.
"I''ve always been fascinated by the fake cartoons that were often seen in The Simpsons, and the Waterworld one always stuck out to me as a kid," says Macaw45 in the game page''s description. "Of course, this game itself, with its gigantic Kevin Costner character on the screen, which takes a single step before the machine asks for more quarters, made me so eager to know ''what would be beyond that one screen you see in the show."
Macaw45 added some of their own interpretation by going further than was originally shown, as described in the description, and creating a more fleshed out Waterworld game for everyone to enjoy.
Funnily enough, this isn''t actually the first Waterworld video game that exists. In fact, there were four Waterworld games made, one for the SNES, one for the PC, and the Virtual Boy, both of which were different from one another, so there''s plenty to choose from if you''re planning a Waterworld themed evening.
