HBO launches ‘Viking Quest’ game

Promo includes tie-in video rant on YouTube

Videogames based on TV shows aren’t new, but “Viking Quest” may be the first based on a TV show within a TV show.

The Web game, actually a promo stunt funded by HBO and created by marketing company Fuel Games, sends “Entourage” character Johnny Drama’s Tarvold on a few simple flash-based levels swinging his ax against foes and yelling his trademark slogan: “Victory!”

But Johnny Drama isn’t as pleased as fans might expect. In a tie-in video posted on YouTube, Kevin Dillon as Drama complains that he hasn’t been paid and that his virtual self is too puny and demands to be compensated “both monetarily and muscularily.”
