loopen is a OS based on EmulationStation, currently in development, which looks to facilitate access on Raspberry Pi, to videogame homebrew creations, for previous generation platforms (NES, Genesis, Atari 2600...).
For users, loopen will automatically download the emulators to their Raspberry Pi and it will access an online store where game developers will able to host their roms.
For creators, loopen will be a space where they will able to:
- Host their games for free on our servers.
- Set the download price, allow free downloads, or accept donations for their games.
- Receive feedback from the community.
This project is a development of TALENTEC entertainment SL, a little company focused on the development of devices to the arcade world.
On this project are involved directly five persons: myself (Jose Manuel Tapia Jurado), like the head of TALENTEC; Jose Luis Franconetti, like Project Manager; and the 41ºNorth team, like Software Engineers :-)
