Donkey Kong x Geek Culture

1 Posted by - February 24, 2013 - Art, Gaming, Literature, Movies

Donkey Kong’s barrels and ladders is a timeless look. Man running uphill against all odds to face his demons (gorilla-demons… I guess> and rescue the damsel in distress. It’s so ripe with symbolism (and that symbolism is so ripe in genre cliches), that BazNet has given DK the mashup treatment with a bunch of other properties… and they all fit, of course.

We’ve got Doctor Who, Game of Thrones (or ASoIF if you’re particular), Prometheus, and Indiana Jones all facing their own brand of barrel/fire/dalek thrown obstacle on their uphill struggle to save the day.

We’ve picked out a few of our favourites below, and you can check out the full set at io9.
