Famimagination: Famicom art exhibit, lazy sloths and more


Anyone who owns a Famicom knows that some of the cartridge art was pretty memorable. If you're really into retro art, in fact, you might find some of those old carts suitable for framing. Or, you could do what the Famicase Art Exhibit did and just make your own.

A cool Japanese game culture store called Meteor recently hosted the exhibit, and apparently it isn't the first, either: there was a 2008 exhibition as well. You can see a few of our favorites in the gallery or all of them at the Famicase website. Some of these games ... man, I would die to see them developed into real titles. What the HELL am I looking at above, for example? Is that a tree sloth with "lazy person" written underneath it? Who in their right mind would not want to know what that game could be about?
