Game Boy glitches on the Nintendo logo - found when I was trying to load an old Kirby’s cartridge to my custom backlighted Game Boy.
Random logo design, crazy sprites, martian typography… this kind of graphic accidents are pure retrogaming beauty, and something hypnotic for a graphic designer like me. Do you think the same?
8-BIT ARCADE CHESS SET INVADES KICKSTARTER
NMI Laser has taken to Kickstarter to fund this marriage of 8-bit arcade classic Space Invaders with equally classic board game Chess in what is the greatest chess set I have ever seen and desperately desire.
The chess set features the arcade game’s character in fluorescent colors laser cut and they sit atop a laser cut and etched acrylic game board. It’s absolutely gorgeous and if you pledge $65 you can get the full set of pieces complete with the board which is a steal.
The Kickstarter is looking to complete the funding goal of $5,000 (they already have $1,089 at the time of this post) in the next 27 days. I think that plenty of time to rouse the tabletop gamers and arcade old schoolers to back this beautiful collaboration.
