The Dodo 6502 Retro Gaming System

By May 9, 2017 12 Comments


There are many retro gaming systems on the “market” today, whether semi-mass produced portables like the Arduboy, or DIY rigs such as this Raspberry Pi Zero-based model that actually fits inside of an original NES controller. Rounding things out are DIY arcade cabinets, which, because of their relatively large size, have been able to house retro gaming systems since computers became available that could emulate older systems. Here’s a neat example, Circuitbeard’s ROMBUS-CT, a miniature cocktail-style cabinet that runs games via a Raspberry Pi.

On the other hand, if these systems aren’t “retro” enough for you, you could perhaps build your own single-board computer from scratch and have it run on a brilliant monochrome OLED green screen. No one has time for that, but of course you’d still like something that looks like it came out of your basement laboratory. Even better is a rig that uses a vintage processor like the venerable 6502 chip. You’re in luck, check out the Dodo kit.

The device grew out of an attempt to build a single-board computer from the ground up, and now features a web-based development platform, as well a collection of games to play. There is even a Dodo exclusive game called 0xDEADBEEF, which I’d have to guess is either quite violent or a Burger Time-style game, but I really have no idea.
