Just today on Twitter, I stumbled upon this magnificent volunteer based project to make very cheap educational game systems using 8-bit graphics to help on developing countries like India or Pakistan.
The price of these systems? Around 12 US dollars. Impressive.
Put this in perspective, imagine all those bootleg NES clones that you usually find on shopping malls, but made for a good cause with completely original software created by volunteers. Way to turn a problem into a solution, ain't it?
About Monodi One of us since 10:46 PM on 10.15.2008
About time I updated this freaking thing!
For those who already know me, I am Monodi. Those who doesn't, well, I am Monodi.
I got such a growing passion of gaming through the years and now I am currently in college starting my courses of Game Design as well!
I consider myself a Nintendo fanboy from all my life, but I have been much more in contact with titles for PC recently. Not that I am abandoning one, but I think it pretty much could cover the best the industry has to offer.
I am up for the philosophy that gameplay is more important than graphics, but I think graphics and technology are also a crucial part of the industry and experience even.
