geNES: The Source Code
"Up-Up-Down-Down-Left-Right-Left-Right-B-A-Start / Just because we use cheats doesn't mean we're not smart"
End of the 80s. 8-bit Revolution. Scientists from around the world were in the race for the great prize. They wanted to discover the source code that increased the number of lives of players from 3 to 30: The famous Konami cheat code.
More than 20 years later, the secret was finally unveiled: The code is in our geNES.

Hey dude, I used the original version designed for NES controller. ;) Check it out:
"The original version of the cheat code (Up-Up-Down-Down-Left-Right-Left-Right-B-A-Start) was designed for the NES controller. In many popular representations of the code, "Start" is added at the end of the sequence. "Select" is also sometimes inserted at the end of the code."
Unfortunaly none of them is in the print process. :/ But I'm very hapy with your comment. Made my day! Thanks a lot for your support!
Hmm, I don't remember this "I(heart)Games" system. Perhaps you are thinking about the Pinzendo Entergoodtimement System? hehehe. Anywho, this idea has been done on tees for as far back as this code was in effect (thank you Konami gods), but I do like how you displayed the concept here. I might even dig this a lil more if you made the design a tad smaller and gave us more DNA strands on the front. Overall, fun work dude!
ha ha, cheat code ftw!
Keep the comments coming!
Clever, but the style of the controllers doesn't match the double-helix.
