Rumours are flying that Leonardo DiCaprio will finally land an Oscar at the end of this month for his role in The Revenant, but you can remove the doubt and win him one yourself.
Courtesy of animation collective The Line an 8-bit video game has been developed to honour Leo’s struggle.
According to Konbini the game was created by Bjorn-Erik Aschim and Sam Taylor, and frankly it is awesome.
The game, which is suitably called Leo’s Red Carpet Rampage, sees you guide a pixelated version of the man himself along the red carpet, past a host of rivals, and to the hallowed Oscar trophy.
The game also features a host of hilarious bonus games including ‘Act Harder’ and ‘Find The Black Nominee’. No points for guessing how that one ends.
Alex Webster, from The Line, is reported by Konbini as saying:
They’ve never made a game before and as such gave themselves two weeks to see if they could actually pull it off…Which I hope you’ll agree they did.
They certainly have Alex.
You can play it here.
