Ever wonder where video games are made? Apparently, they are made in factories. In the latest issue of Amusement (a French magazine that covers games and fashion), photographer/artist, Marc Da Cunha Lopes AKA “aisakie” shows us a glimpse in the factories that produces iconic games such as Tetris, Sonic the Hedgehog, Mario Bros., Arkanoid, and Pong.
The photos feature the fabrication of signature items from these games such as the smelting of the Sonic’s rings, the cutting of the Tetris blocks, the sculpting of the 1-Up mushroom from Mario Bros.
Of course, this is all the work of fantasy by aisakie. but wouldn’t it be brilliant if you can make a in-game item? I wonder if I can make the “speader gun” from Contra out of paper mache. I would use that sucker to chase the neighborhood cats. heheheheh
Hit the jump to check out the rest of aisakie’s brilliant photographs.
