Famicase: Artists Make Up New NES Game Cartridges

What better canvas for your creative expression than an old 8-bit NES cartridge? That’s what the recent Famicase art exhibition in Japan was all about.

Famicase NES Cartridges

Satoshi Sagagami, who runs retro game shop Super Meteor, organizes the annual event which asks over 50 designers, illustrators, authors and game creators to create their own imaginary games and artwork using old NES carts.

My personal favorite has to be the Blowing out Dust from the Cartridge game — an experience I remember all too well whenever my console would freak out.

The AC Adapter Game looks like lots of fun, but might pose a strangulation hazard for the young-uns. I’m pretty sure this was played in at least one household out there at some point.

Other designs range from the entertaining – like this Roland TB-303 synthesizer inspired game…

…to the surreal. Anyone want to tell me what the heck is going on in this one?

..or this one?

Famicase NES Cartridge Weird

Agriculture insists that you get off your lazy ass, get outside and grow some crops instead of sitting on the couch playing games all day.

So maybe I wouldn’t have bought that game, but I definitely would have purchased Vector Planet, which envisions what would have happened if the NES and the Vectrex had an illegitimate child. This is the stuff that dreams are made of.

Check out the entire collection over on the Famicase exhibition website.
