For anyone who doesn’t know, a new console is in development that will take the game market on a pretty wild ride. The console will run on Android, and will basically provide free games to those who choose to pick it up. Considering the console will only be $99, this should be a large number of people. Along with the console itself, people who purchase the console will also get a dev kit, making it possible to develop your own games. These can then be made available for free. Basically, it’s a giant mess of awesome for one low price of $99. Now that you know that, lets get to the Kickstarter.
In order to get this project rolling, they need to make $950,000 through a Kickstarter. As of this morning, one hour into their campaign, they have already raised $75,000, and that number is still rising. As of posting, the total is a $551,000. With that great of results, it should be no problem to expect that they will meet their goal.
Overall, this project seems really cool. I would definitely be down to getting into it, regardless of the fact that I refuse to actually develop for it.
What do you guys think about this new console?
