About

Retrogaming is a new trend in the game industry, and many adults who used to be gamer kids in the 80's are out there today waiting for a new old-school game machine in their living rooms.

Playing retro games was easy and simple in comparison to the contemporary video games with their advanced technologies and over-complexities. While those new video games keep attracting many people today, there are also some people who appreciate simplicity and "classiness" of the retro games, like many people today still prefer music such as The Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan.

That is why we decided to give retrogaming a new look with quality material and modern design, yet maintaining its vintage feel.

And we powered it up with the newest hardware and wireless capabilities: HDMI, bluetooth, wi-fi and 2400 MIPS CPU. All of them with hassle-free configuration and the possibility of emulating thousands of classic games available in single/multi-player mode. It also integrates with modern wireless joypads.

IN DEPTH

  • Quality case in refined wood by Alpi.
  • Last generation powerful mini computer (about 2400 MIPS) with no fan (you will not be hassled by noises).
  • Expandable with USB or wi-fi: find a new exicting game and load it on Hitbit.
  • 2 players mode with bluetooth: connect your favourite modern wireless controllers and play with your friends.
  • HDMI digital output: connect it to your new TV without any adapter.
  • Emulates different arcades and consoles machines, allowing you to virtually play thousands of old-school games.
  • The joystick and the 8 play buttons (6 on top and 2 on the back) are configured to be used with most of the classic games.

Risks and challenges

We want to start the mass production of our console and allow as many people as possible to enter the retro gaming world.
To achieve our aim, first of all we need to rearrange the production process to transform our prototype into a series product with a hand-made soul.

We also need to find a factory in Italy (we deeply believe in Made in Italy) that will be able to automate part of the industrial steps, to build the case and to customize it with different wood types according to client's taste.

Also, thanks to series production, we will be able to lower the hardware costs talking directly to vendors, investing more on research and development.

We have a project plan for the whole process and we just need your help to make our dream come true.
