Many of us can recall repeatedly trying to load up NES cartridges that, for one reason or another, decided to display shifting screens of random bits instead of their intended game. No Carrier’s open source glitchNES software makes exploring those accidental realms of digital art easy. Alter the code to your heart’s content then load it up in your favorite emulator program. Though you may feel the reflexive urge to blow into a cartridge upon first viewing the results, these visuals would likely compliment your next chiptune performance quite nicely.
