About

As featured on:

What is it?

The ultimate all-in-one-Retro console with a built-in DVD-RW drive to run games for Amiga CD32, Sony PlayStation, Sega Saturn*, Sega CD*, TurboGrafx* and more .

The (*)-marked Systems will require additional ROM files in order to work. Easy-to-follow installation-instructions are provided in our included user manual.

Of course it can also play ROMS for other consoles such as SNES/Super Famicom, Genesis/MegaDrive and more.

The indieGO! is silent, power efficient and very unique, when compared with other ARM-based consoles, because of the integrated DVD-Drive.

Compatible to tons of consoles - a App Store with optional downloads makes it future proof

Pre-installed games include Doom (sharware), Quake (Shareware), Duke Nukem (Shareware) and Whacky Wheels (shareware) and Jim Power Full-Version - more are accessible from our appstore.

For games you add by yourself and which are normally played via Keyboard and mouse we will offer a joypad-mapping tool. (a Default mapping will cover a lot of games) - Of course you can also connect a USB-Keyboard and Mouse if you like to

Games downloaded from the indieGO!-store are ready2play (mapped to be played with a pad)

Enjoy your favorite console and home computer games on a single device

The system will keep itself updated. You get also access to a member area on our Websites www.aeros-os.org and www.indiego-gaming.com

Unlike other "Retro-console campaigns" we will not just put a Raspberry Pi with a Retropie like distro on it..

Well... to be honest you can install it still if you like.. side by side or on top of our solution ; ) And to be even more honest you will get a dual boot to enable you both worlds.. 

Our system is called indieGO!-OS and is based on EmulationStation, Kodi, AEROS, AMC, indieGO!-Marketplace and EmuLA. 

AEROS itself is based on Debian linux and indieGO!-OS is again a fork of AEROS aimed for gaming and emulation purposes.

The indieGO! allows to choose between indieGO!-OS(™), AEROS and Android(™) - Just reboot into a indie-Console, a Android console or a Mini PC.

Unlike older "hand-glued" projects we offer you a real AppStore which will be filled with tons of free games, demos and commercial full versions of games for all kind of retro platforms but also NEW stuff exclusively for indieGO!-compatible systems.

But you are 100% free to add own stuff to your console from every existing source! Your home, your castle.

On top and included in the price is your own Cloud-Storage (25GB) to store games, data and media... just logIN on a friends machine and access your data from everywhere on the globe. 

We include a DVD-RW because so you can just insert Amiga CD32 and Playstation original games! And if you take care to include needed rom-files you can also run Saturn, SegaCD and other CD-based console games.

One special feature of indieGO!-OS is a recognition layer for PC and console games on CD/DVD. If you insert a ROM it will be scanned and a wizard will help you to add it to your library. No manual config is needed.

Insert, install run! = FUN

Thank you very much for supporting us! Please spread the word! it is time to show how much more "enthusiasm" can be vs. money driven mainstream ; )

Instant fun!

Plug and Play! With the launch of the console you will get access to the indieGO!-library which consists of Games (demos, full versions, shareware, public domain) of all platform the system is capable to emulate or execute natively. 

Remember: insert a disk an the system will install it.
       If it is not recognized, just use the member-forum to request compatibility and we will work on it.

Why this campaign?

hmm... good point : ) You should ask yourself if you need something like indieGO! + 25GB Cloud-storage + Kodi Media Center + ARM based Computer?

Risks and challenges

There are no particular risks, or at least we don't foresee any particular risks when it comes to fulfilling our backers rewards. We've built our prototype, our custom OS, we have carefully researched sources for materials and components.

The only small thing we can think of is not being able to get enough ARM SoC boards in time from our suppliers, thus shipping of consoles could be delayed slightly. All other parts are readily available and are not a problem to get high quantities at any time. The I/O shield and SoC-mounting frames and the case for IndieGo XS are done by us directly in the workshop.
