Plenty of splash screens do this:
e.g. this apallingly designed one:

and here's another website made entirely from lots of small images, no text, no ALT text.

To the person who devils advocated "why should a website have to have alt text?", one other point is that ALT text is not just for users with disabilities, ALT text is also for search engines. The page above doesn't rate highly in the search engines since there is no text or ALT text to index.
