Black Lodge 2600

Is this one a cop out? Probably, but a list of Twin Peaks-inspired games without Jak Locke's Atari-fied Black Lodge 2600 just feels wrong. Locke translates the harrowing finale of season two, as Cooper explores the depths of the Black Lodge and the Red Room to save Annie from Windham Earle. Considering the series' immense popularity at the time (and considering 1991 was well before DVR was an idea anyone could conceive of), a massive 10.4 million viewers tuned into the series finale, which is quite possibly one of the most disturbing hours of broadcast television ever produced. Garbled, digitized audio clips match the gradually frenzied pace of the game as the player races from room to room, Cooper's evil doppelganger close behind. Ignore the anachronism that development for the Atari 2600 stopped in 1984 and Twin Peaks didn’t debut until 1990. Black Lodge 2600 is available here to play in your browser or download on PC.
