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:
It sort of depends whether you see the Arduboy as a piece of equipment that funds this site or an eco-system that keeps us all engaged. @bateske allows and even encourages people to discuss non-commercial clones and variants that expand on the original Arduboy concept. I would imagine with the wealth of games available on mobile phones that the people who are interested in playing Arduboy games on their phones are already involved in the Arduboy environment.
