About this project
Mobile gaming has gained a whole lot of popularity over the last few years, and time spent playing video games is on the rise, especially the devotion to games on tablets and smartphones.
Retro Infinity intends to re-release classic video games from the late 80’s and 90’s into this huge new marketplace. We have licensed hundreds of amazing retro games that were played on consoles and PC's created by such legendary video gaming companies as Amiga, Atari and others.
These classic games are fun to play, family friendly, and were wildly popular in the 80’s and 90’s. Many of these games have been unavailable to play for years because the software is incompatible with today's mobile platforms. We just need to provide the software that allows them to be played by today’s mobile gamer. The solution - we are creating the Retro Infinity Player!
The Retro Infinity Player is a software engine that allows these timeless games to be played on today’s mobile phones, tablets, smart TVs and streaming set-top devices, such as iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, and Roku.
Here's the deal: Our goal is to raise at least $100,000 to complete software development and release the Retro Infinity Player, which will allow the games that we have licensed to be initially available on iPhone and Android devices.
After reaching our initial Kickstarter goal, we intend to add "stretch" goals, which will enable us to license and add additional games to our catalogue, and tailor our software for additional mobile platforms and streaming devices. Our goal is to provide fresh content and to address new trends in the mobile device marketplace.
This is where we need your help. By backing this project and helping us to complete and deliver the Retro Infinity Player, you’re unlocking the vault on hundreds of awesome “retro” video games that can be played on the newest mobile platforms and are based on the players’ specific interests and activities.
You get the chance to play them first! And you get the chance to own these games at a significant discount!
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
What you've seen in this Kickstarter campaign was put together by a very small team over the past several months. To show you that we mean business, we have invested our own money to purchase software and trademarks from Amiga Inc., in addition to purchasing exclusive licenses required to complete the platform.
We also purchased, or licensed, enough video game titles to provide a rich selection of games for the launch of our Retro Infinity Player. Our investment shows our commitment to build the ultimate mobile platform for playing your favorite "retro" video games.
Instead of taking this project to venture capitalists for approval - we are cutting out the middleman and taking it directly to you.
As the customer, you get the ultimate voice in bringing back the games that you loved to play in the Eighties and Nineties – and ultimately whether or not we make the Retro Infinity Player.
Your dollars are your voice and the more we raise from our backers, the more resources we’ll have to bring you a great gaming experience for all of your favorite classic games.
Merchandise & Rewards:
We are offering more than just the chance to support the Retro Infinity Player and the "retro" gaming genre. As an early backer, you’ll also be getting a lot more than just the opportunity to play your favorite Amiga games on your mobile device.
Based upon your level of support for this project, you’ll be part of a select club that has exclusive access to early game play, behind the scenes development updates, and exclusive branded merchandise.
Are you ready for something even more awesome?
We take our ambitions very seriously. In fact, we have recently launched the Retro Infinity brand at NASCAR through a sponsorship with Rick Ware Racing.
Because of our relationship with NASCAR, we’re able to offer unique rewards, like pit passes to future Retro Infinity team events, meet and greet with the racing team, and special race day event tickets.
With all of these exclusive rewards, you’re sure to find one you love! We appreciate all of your support. Every dollar brings us closer to releasing all of these fun games back into the market, so we can play them again!

Risks and challenges
We are aiming to provide our backers with classic "retro" games for play on their mobile phones, tablets and set top devices. These specific platforms include; iOS (Apple), Android, Windows phone, and set top devices such as Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Google TV, and Roku.
Depending on the funding levels reached, we may have to limit the number of mobile and set top platforms that we service for the initial launch. Additionally, all released games might not be compatible on all of the available platforms, or the newest version of operating software for each platform. Nonetheless, our software team will work on providing updates and software solutions that allow the games to be played on the newest devices; based on the demand for those updates.
Even with our very limited funding, our team has been able to design the initial software concept, complete an extensive demo of actual licensed video games being played, and license hundreds of classic video games that will provide a wide selection of game types and genres for Gamers from 8 to 80 years old.
We intend to deliver backers an enjoyable casual gaming experience, and we are confident that even with limited means, we will be able to deliver an amazing experience on a limited number of platforms.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
