I’ve just arrived at the community this past month and, as i said before, i’m in love with the Arduboy. Though sometimes i feel im late to the party.
I might not have the context, but i’ve just now got to know that Team ARG is no more, and some other things seems to be ceased, like the Arduboy Magazine.
If I’m mistaken in this assumption, please enlighten me since i don’t have the context.
So i’ve had this idea and i don’t know if it was suggested before or if even it’s allowed.
The idea is to allow developers to export their games to other platforms (eg. Desktop/Mobile) and make it able to be played there, with a good experience.
The other way was to create a mobile app that would house many games, and allow the user to play them, as if it was a “Mini VideoGame Emulator”, but i don’t know how Apple would like this though.
The ultimate objective is to enable devs to make their games available in more places and improve Arduboy’s public awareness.
I’ve sketched some mocks to better explain the idea:
The app would be available on the device home screen
Here are two examples of how the layout could work
And this one is of the “Mini VideoGame Emulator” idea.
I know that the games are already playable on the browser, even on mobile, but i think the experience could be improved. even as a web app.
I’ve already talked with @FManga and he’s ok with the idea. I think the sound in emulator doesn’t work yet, so that’s an area i would need to look into.
That’s it, i’ll be pleased to hear any feedback
