Full disclosure: I am not involved with this project nor do I have any financial stake in it; though I am incredibly excited by it and I have personally backed it.

    It looks cute, but I can’t imagine playing games with that. I can feel my hands getting cramped just looking at that demo video.

      I’m more worried about my fingers hurting from the tiny friction, with the PS1 I remember my fingers hurting from the D pad. I’m not sure if my eyesight will be able to appreciate all the magic either.

        Their OLED display is native “96 x 64 px, cropped to 5:4 ratio”, so actual display area is 80x64 pixels. The Game Boy LCD resolution was 160×144. So if the picture seems blurry and cramped, it’s not just your eyesight. I’m sure it’s fine for Tetris, though.

      Cute! My only issue with it is that the aspect ratio of the screen is not the gameboy’s 1.11:1 ratio, instead being wider. This seems to result in the top of the screen getting cut off, as seen here. Otherwise, it looks great!
