TGS 2010: The Bayeux Tapestry Meets the Eggplant Wizard

I've made no secret of my love for VGMaps and their noble mission to render video game worlds in atlas-like detail. But I fear our friends at VGMaps have just been fatally outdone by none other than Akihabara retro shop Super Potato. (Yes, them again.)

Super Potato has a long-standing tradition of adorning the walls of its building's public spaces with retro-themed artwork, usually of a Famicom-oriented nature. Their latest work pretty much gilds the lily, though: A massive printed mural of an entire Kid Icarus fortress stage.



Is this awesome? Yes. Yes, it is.

I'd never really considered creating a poster like this, even after holding on to Mark MacDonald's rad Super Metroid map poster for a year. But it's kind of an amazing idea to render a virtual space in the real world. Now I want to plaster my apartment walls with these.

I'm sure my fiancée won't mind.

That is cool! Don't think my wife would be too receptive to putting that up on the wall though.
