Seriously, we wish this video game really existed.

You can't actually play this "Downton Abbey" 16-bit game, but it looks and sounds exactly like something you could have played for hours in the 1980's on Super Nintendo. The spoof hit YouTube on Jan. 24 and features the characters of the hit PBS show in a RPG-like adventure.

Case in point: Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham, requests your help in finding his fancy cigars.

Footman! I require assistance! I have misplaced ten of my most cherished cigars! I have guests coming over tonight for a fancy cigar party! Without them I'll be ruined. I need you to explore the estate, and the surrounding grounds for my missing fancy cigars!

Watch the fake game above and share your thoughts!

"Downton Abbey" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. EST on PBS.
