The Nintendo Game & Watch - which we covered in past issues already, is powered by an ESP32. With the RISC-V architecture and this tremendous amount of additional peripherals on-chip, it is a fantastic device for more than … just emulating an IBM PC. What about games? 🕹
Lewin Day also wrote a spot-on article about FABGL - a display controller, PS/2 mouse and keyboard controller, graphics library, sound engine, graphical user interface yada, yada, yada developed by Fabrizio Di Vittorio and open-sourced here. Should you consider an ESP32 development board, have a look.
And it gets even more interesting. Kerry Scharfglass aka @Borgel also examined gaming on this little device and documented, how to run your favorite 8bit games on it.
rossumur developed a groundbreaking piece of modern software history - esp_8_bit and presents you Atari 8bit computers, NES and SMS game consoles on your TV with nothing more than a ESP32 and a sense of nostalgia.
Both projects are everything but brand new. Still, they are very relevant if the ESP32 is relevant to you! Question is, are you relevant to the ESP32? 😇
