Garfield, Only He's A Nightmarish Monster Starring In A Game Boy Game [YouTube] “Last year, just in time for Halloween, Lumpy made some short animations based on artist Will Burke’s nightmarish Garfield sketches. Fast forward to May 2019 and he’s just finished work on a complete 13-minute video, presented in the style of the grossest Game Boy game ever made.” [via: Kotaku]

Why? Why did I click on that? Why did I watch the whole thing?? Well I guess I'll just be unsettled for the rest of my life then!

If, like me, you can't get enough of this, lots of creepy Garfield art gets posted to r/imsorryjon every day.

I heartily approve!!!

I do have one question...Was that Jon or Lyman in the home for the unwell? It was very hard to tell if that was Lyman’s porn-stache or Jon’ s crazily pursed lips. I hope it was Lyman. We always just assumed his body was buried in the backyard somewhere.

I wouldn't be surprised if Jim Davis was willing to license this. I'd buy it!

the most horrifying thing about this was using the game boy advance aspect ratio with game boy color bit depth restrictions

At the end of the video, after the game credits you see Lyman escaping.

This reminds me of a Twine game from about 8 years ago about a Snoopy bio-robot that consumes the universe. I think I'd take Snoopy over Garfield in terms of Sunday funny dieties.

Ah, couldn't remember the full title, and did get a few details wrong, but the game I was thinking of is Matsaba Snoopy:

what would it say about jon if we were to imagine a mashup of this hellscape with the equally probable hypothesis that garfield isnt really there at all?

Mastaba Snoopy, previously on Metafilter

Including this prophetic comment:

The Garfield version of this would be even darker, I think.

The buzz on r/imsorryjon these days is a comic series about Jon fighting the eldritch being Garfield through countless loops of time. The author sure has a knack for making each page more awesome than the last.
