Slimer is well known for his gigantic appetite, so to Vadu Amka, creating a console mod that makes Slimer look like he’s eating the game cartridge just made sense. And making the teeth glow in the dark? That’s just pure genius.
According to Amka’s blog, he only works with damaged, retro consoles. Other incredible mods from the artist include: a Final Fantasy-themed Super Famicom, a Metroid-themed Game Boy Advance and Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages-themed Game Boy Color.
The unusual hobby of customizing classic gaming consoles has exploded over the past few years, with many artists selling personalize, made to order (and often expensive) customized classic game consoles. For many nostalgic artists, old game consoles provide the ideal surface to show off their creativity.
It’s a shame the early Ghostbusters games were so terrible.
