Bet You Never Played an NES Game like This: Innovating Under Limitations

We all know someone who has a Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) sitting around collecting dust.  The 1980s gaming console was limited in its capabilities, but just how much wiggle room does that leave for mischief?  In this talk, Vi Grey will demonstrate how it is possible to innovate under the limitations the NES restricts us with to create new ways a person can interact with a game.  You will see NES games that are also fully functioning web pages and ZIP files, console memory dumps that can be opened as JPEG images, game cartridges that secretly contain other entire NES games, and much more.
