Blow The Cartridge combines retro gaming, crowd sourcing and good time comic fun laughs a plenty

Self-confessed Commodore 64 junkie and accidental video game designer Cameron Davis has launched http://www.blowthecartridge.com , a site devoted to making comics about classic video games of years past.

The idea is simple: Readers suggest a game they loved playing by leaving a comment or voting on the poll, and every Wed nes day (see what we did there) a new retrogaming comic will appear through the magic of the Internet. HOORAH, INTERNET.

There’s almost a hundred games lampooned on the site already, including favourites such as Wonder Boy, Elite and even Horace Goes Skiing. There won’t ever be comics about Mario, Zelda or Donkey Kong– there’s already a million of them out there. Blow The Cartridge is about taking you on a long trip down random access memory lane.

So why are you seeing a press release? Simple! Not only do you deserve to take a few minutes from your work day to read some comics, but if you’re an editor of a magazine and you’re interested in running these comics in your publication, we would love to talk to you. Just email camerondavis@gmail.com and your life will instantly be better...or your money back!?
