The STARFORCE PI on Kickstarter NOW! Pledge here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...

'Be the Hero | Choose.Your.Weapon | Relive the Adventure! - With the Star Force Pi STORMTROOPER tabletop, you can finally enter the ultimate dimension in gameplay!'

That tagline came straight from console branding of the 90's. But it's that level of corny, over-the-top branding that made us go crazy for Sega and Nintendo when we were kids! We had to have it, and it's that feeling I want to recreate with this attractive portable package; for young and old retrogamers.

--------------------
WHAT IS IT?
--------------------
The STORMTROOPER is a gameconsole that gives you full arcade feedback with true microswitch Joystick and Buttons, a Raspberry Pi at its core, supporting all your favorite games, a sweet little QVGA screen: magnified, blasting speaker, a rechargeable battery lasting 5+ hours, USB for your own Megadrive controllers, Ethernet, HDMI, the whole shebang. I wanted the experience to be as close as possible to a real arcade, without getting a hernia to move it!

-------------------------------
WHO WANTS ONE?
-------------------------------
At present I'm tentatively checking whether there is enough interest online for me to move from a single working prototype into something larger, professionally developed and crowdfunded. I built this so I could play Metal Slug, properly, anywhere, at any time, without having to hijack a PC or TV to do it, or resorting to handhelds. I can imagine other people would wanna play their arcadegames this way... so let me know!
