My Famicase Exhibition ’09

Thursday, May 7th, 2009

Gradius II loaded in Gradius:

Castlevania 3: Dracula\'s Curse loaded in Castlevania 2: Simon\'s Quest:

L over at SelectButton has made some amazing glitch art (and music!) by loading the save state from one NES game into a completely different (and thus incompatible) title, under emulation of course. The consequent memory corruption produces a bizarre, glitched out approximation of both games. Is this what happens when you put two NES cartridges into one of Jeff Goldblum’s telepods? Read the thread on their forums for more screens and experiments.
