Hi Guys!
I'm a 17-year-old student and founder of 8BitCADE. I just launched my first ever Kickstarter! The 8BitCADE XL is an educational DIY gaming console created to educate in a fun and rewarding way - learn code while playing retro games! It comes with over 200+ preinstalled games such as donkey kong and Galactica! Check it out below.
