Thank you Dr. Neo!!!
I will definitely enter in this compo!

Alright, so I was planning on making a gameboy game, but I realized that having this image in it would take up most of the tiles that the gameboy could hold (if not all). So I don't know what I should do....

I thought of a creative way to handle this.

This is not a problem because you don't have to show the logo in-game - you just have to put it before the title screen. There's only a limit on how many tiles you can display in any given frame, not on the total number of tiles you can store in your ROM (well, there's obviously a limit on that as well, but MBC3 gives you up to 2 MByte of ROM space and I doubt your game needs *that* many tiles).

Good to see another competition. I'm subscribed to a lot of neo forums but didn't get any notification for this (email updates delayed?), I just decided to look at the main site by chance. I'll spread the news.
