Announcement   Announcement : indieGO! retro console on Kickstarter
   posted by phoenixkonsole on 20-Dec-2015 19:52:24 (2105 reads)

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/681890174/indiego-all-in-one-retro-game-console-raspberry-pi?ref=nav_search

Hi,

we are right now on Kickstarter to fund a initial batch of the indieGO!

The indieGO! console is mainly targeted at retro gamers and Amigans.
The OS itself is basically AEROS Premium with the difference that it boots straight into EmulationStation. From there you can control everything with a Joypad.





What makes it unique against other Raspberry Pi based console projects is:
  • You can choose between Raspberry Pi2 or Odroid-C1 and Odroid Xu4
  • a DVD-ROM to play original CD-based console games
  • a AppStore (you can use Pi-store or indieGO! apostle to get more stuff
  • cloud storage (powered by AmiCloud www.aeros-os.org)
  • A desktop-mode (AEROS www.aeros-os.org)
  • i386 Wrapper which costs up to 30$ on other platforms for free


We have also 1,2,3 or more goodies during the campaign:
The first one:
Everyone who backs us with at east 25€ will get Jim Power in Mutant Planet plus Patrick Nevian's piano rendition of the Chris Hülsbeck Title theme especially made for us. -> check the campaign description to listen to a snippet.

The second one:
Exagear desktop included for free (http://eltechs.com/product/exagear-desktop/)

The third one:
Is a limited Amiga Racer USB-Stick

The forth one will be the limited AROS Broadway USB-Stick which contains also AEROS for all Platforms, the game G.E.M.Z and EmuLA the emulator launcher and more...

The fifth one will be more Amiga-Games from the past
Stay tuned.. still over 50 days to fill with input.

The campaign will allow us to produce a small batch and hopefully continue to let the user base grow steady. It will also help us to finance our AROS and AmigaOS productions like EmuLA and others which are secret for now

You should edit your Indiego page...

Q. Can I use the MAME logo to advertise my product?
A. No. Using the logo in your advertising makes it appear that the product is something officially endorsed by Nicola Salmoria, and constitutes trademark infringement.

Also this one seems to be relevant.

Q. Can I include MAME with my product?
A. No. MAME is not licensed for commercial use. Using MAME as a "freebie" or including it at "no cost" with your product still constitutes commerical usage and is forbidden by the license.

Why not on IndieGoGo instead of Kickstarter? Surely IndieGO should be founded on IndieGoGo? Now, let me press "Go!" here... :)

I assume you bought the rights to use the trademarks of Nintendo, Sony & Sega in your advertising & in your product? Hopefully you don't wake any dragons...

Let's count the copyright infringements:

Anything showing on screen should be ok.

It would be problem if those things were printed on console or
a box.Goes without saying that ROMs and games can only be
included with written permission.

Besides , confusion applies to products so it would be problem
if phoenixconsole tried to sell it as Sega's or Sony branded product
which he is not.
