It had originally started as an April’s Fool joke for 2014, but has since become loved by those who dared to download it.

One reviewer, for instance, goes on to say:

Incredible Top notch graphics, gripping storyline, great gameplay. What more do you need? Play this game to discover yourself.

And what is your task? Stare at the black screen, and tap it when it flashes white. The screen can stay black for anywhere from 1 second to, wait for it, one month.

And what happens when you tap on the black screen? Well, it’s game over I’m afraid. Retry?

Sony has revealed the numbers for the PlayStation 4, and it’s looking fantastic for them. As of December 1st, 2.1 million consoles were sold worldwide since the US launch on November 15 – 700,000 were generated by sales in Europe and Australasia two days after the PS4’s release in those regions. “PS4 delivered the best launch in PlayStation history,” stated Andrew House, Sony Computer Entertainment President and group CEO. “Demand remains incredibly strong and continues to overwhelm the supply worldwide.”

Rivals Microsoft have yet to reveal their own figures for the Xbox One (launched a week after the PS4) in November. However the Xbox One has matched Sony in that it has also sold 1 million units in 24 hours.

‘Game of Thrones: The 8-bit Game’ is released

Game of Thrones fans desperately twiddling their thumbs until Season 4 starts next year (or until the next book is finally published) will be happy to know they can distract themselves for a little while. A super-fan has recently created an 8-bit platform game based on the series, featuring the 2D pixelated artwork we know and love – along with some of the characters we know and love along with it.

Enjoy a 2D side-scrolling release, where players attempt to navigate multiple levels by dodging obstacles and projectiles – all the while defeating enemies and picking up items. With four fan-favorite characters playable (Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, Tyrion Lannister and Davos Seaworth), fans are sure to get a kick out of this retro version of Westeros.

Spanish developer Abel Alvarez Rejo is the brains behind the game, and has luckily made it available for free. The Internet reaction to the game has been so phenomenal that Alves has spoken of creating similar games in the same retro context. Keep an eye on his website for more.

Watch the trailer here, and enjoy the nostalgia.
