Freaks and Geeks sees new life as interactive YouTube game

S. Prell, @SamPrell

A game-ified version of NBC's 1999 teen drama, Freaks and Geeks, is now available on YouTube, courtesy of The Fine Bros and Doctor Octoroc. The game plays out automatically as it follows a loose interpretation of the show's plot, but key decisions are left to players, with each choice leading to a new video.

This first game tackles the "freaks" half of the show, while a later expansion will explore life as a geek at William McKinley High School during the neon and synthesizer-infused 80s. Even if you're not familiar with Freaks and Geeks, you probably recognize some of the stars whose careers it helped launch, including Seth Rogen, Jason Segel and James Franco. They're like, famous and stuff.
