If you have never heard of My family showit means you You probably haven’t visited this page in Aprilsince the exhibition debuted in 2005 We covered his annual showcase of incredible cartridge art.
Japanese game store Meteor is home to the gallery, which each year invites both local and international artists to submit designs for Famicom game cartridge art. The catch is that these submissions are for games that don’t actually exist and were invented by the artist.
Each submission includes a copy of the graphic and a brief description of the game, which along with the label can tell a detailed story of what the game is about, or can be kept intentionally minimal to leave it up to you.
And while the physical Exhibition will be almost impossible for 99% of you this year given the ongoing travel restrictions in Japan, as usual Meteor did us all a favor and uploaded the full gallery to their website so we can click through at our leisure.
I’ve included some highlights below, while you can check out the complete gallery on Meteor’s website
