That was the theory behind the "app" category last time. People can submit small games if they want, there is no restriction, but based on the submissions last time, I think most people are in agreement that keeping it to the 2 categories is good enough.

I think the 7k size restriction was just a bit of a joke based on the kanji symbol for water looking like 7K.

Also, how about labeling the compo winners and their categories on the cart?

I already do this.

I see. I checked before posting but this is the first time I noticed the secondary menu. Sorry for the mistake.

There's only so much space on the Game Pak label, especially when there are two themes in one multicart. The first volume had two themes: the 2011 compo and relatively high-production-value reimaginings of Action 52 games (STREEMERZ was the only one), but there was no overlap. The second also had two: the 2014 compo and simultaneous multiplayer (which was emphasized down the middle).

Making a full listing of all games might make it look like a pirate multicart, Maxi 15 (Australia), 4-in-1 by Sachen, or the single game Palamedes (U), whose label looks like a manual page. My inspiration is more from the box art of Super Smash Bros. Melee, as well as other legit multicarts such as Donkey Kong Classics, Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt/World Class Track Meet, Super Mario Bros./Tetris/Nintendo World Cup, and Quattro Adventure.

The back of the box of a CIB edition would have more room to describe the included games, just as songs are credited on the back cover of an album.

Kandroock, my pal at the Mojon Twins who draws our cover art would be able to draw a picture representing *all* the games which could be user for cover art. I haven't reached him yet, but he's good at doing such mash ups or collages.
