I just finished up El Jugador, it's a retro open-source game console based on a Parallax Propeller & designed as a module to fit on top of the Propeller Platform.

Here's a photo:


Features:

  • Make your own games with just a little coding experience
  • SD Card bootloader so you don't need any special programming hardware
  • PAL or NTSC video output with audio
  • Dual Controller Ports for multiplayer games
  • Modular so you can add modules things like battery packs or protoboards.
  • High-Performance 32-bit, 160 MIPS CPU
  • Open Source under the MIT license
  • Overclock-able up to 200 MIPS with a 6.25Mhz Crystal


Here's the instructable (with links to download the layout / schematic).

Here's a video demo of wolfenstein 3d.

I did the layout for El Jugador and baggers contributed the SD bootloader (with a little tweaking from OBC). The bootloader is based on femtobasic's fsrw objects from Tomas Rokicki & Mike Green. THANKS GUYS!

Giant Bomb did a quick look for El Jugador:

Pretty funny and worth a look. A lot of comments on the video, too.
