Unreal Famicom Games are... Well, Unreal

Famicase project shows off 2010 line-up
The humble Famicom cartridge may not seem like the perfect canvas on which to create art, but every year Japanese game shop Meter hosts Famicase, a project aiming to prove just the opposite. Artists are asked to create artwork for a fictitious game and display it on a Famicom cart, and predictably the results range from the brilliant to the bizarre.
If you're into some oddball artwork and don't mind gawping at awesome-looking cartridges you'll never be able to own, you might want to check out the Famicase exhibition. Our favourites include flying game The Family Twitter and Bubbles, a game that includes a special straw adaptor to assist you in blowing bubbles.
