You might have already noticed if you looked at the gallery for this year’s My Famicase Exhibition, the annual display of fake Famicom boxarts held at Tokyo’s Meteor store, but we were lucky enough to get to participate this year!
We worked with the wonderful Ashley Davis (Once Upon A Pixel) to create the above boxart, for a hypothetical Famicom game called “Meteor Night.” Here’s the description we submitted for this game idea:
“Designed to be played with friends or a date, Meteor Night shows a peaceful sky full of 8-bit stars. Sometimes a meteor will fly across the sky. Turn down the lights, bring a blanket and snacks, and enjoy Meteor Night together.”
I cannot tell you guys how thrilled I am to get to share this with you. This is something we’ve been hoping to do even before I wandered into Meteor in Tokyo last year and met proprietor Satoshi Sakagami.
I’m super excited to have our site be part of this awesome exhibit, and I know I speak for Eric when I say I’m really glad to have found an excuse to work with Ashley, whose input (and, you know, actual drawing) turned our original idea into something really endearing. We might be the only Americans in this year’s lineup, which is pretty cool.
Thanks so much to Meteor for allowing us to join in! And now to browse the rest of the gallery!
