Our Kickstarter is live! Retro games on your TV! And you can write your own games too!

Sorry for the exclamation points.  I’m addicted to them since Elaine had that outburst on Seinfeld.

Anyhooters, we’ve launched our Kickstarter, here.

Here’s a brief explanation why we’re doing it.

Simmone and Andrew are both passionate makers and teachers.

Simmone is the coordinator at Hands on Brisbane and also teaches many of the workshops helping people learn new skills.

Andrew is a long term electronic tinkerer that creates things like The Asteroid Belt and games for the Uzebox like Tornado 2000. He regularly teaches people how to make electronic things. More to the point, over the years he has taught scores of people how to write computer games.

That is where the Uzebox DTV comes in. The Uzebox itself is an awesome platform for learning to write games on, however many people are intimidated by having to build it themselves. The Uzebox DTV is pre-built, so you can use it immediately, without having to know how to solder. It will help build the Uzebox community, and hopefully can help get YOU involved in writing games, and sharing them with your friends.
