Make a real game based on a fake cartridge!

Inspired by the amazing "A Game By Its Cover" game jam, but with community submitted cartridges! And now, open to the internet for the first time! 

What we're doing:

  1. Make fake video game cartridges
  2. Choose someone else's fake cartridge
  3. Make it into a real game! In 3-weeks!

Upload as much as you like, as often as you like. This is your time to shine. The only rule is to keep it radically appropriate. Have fun. Get funky.
