Product Description

TinkerGen GameGo



As video games became more complex, a lot of effort went into their development. Now it requires a whole team of developers & lots of resources and time to make a video game.

What if you want a shortcut to making your own games? This handheld console is made for STEM educators or people who just like creating retro games. It is based on STM32F401RET6 ARM Cortex M4 chip and fully supports Microsoft MakeCode, both for block programming and JavaScript.
 

Features

Microsoft MakeCode Arcade Compatible - A Powerful Programming Platform

MakeCode Arcade is a popular platform for simulating your own games. You can easily use it through a web browser and download your code to deploy on GameGo. You can start by trying out some of the readily available examples on https://arcade.makecode.com/ and then go on to develop your own creations.

There is support forum on MakeCode Arcade where you can ask questions, and you will be able to explore projects that other people have shared. 


 

Educational Course Materials

Kids' creative thinking and hands-on skills are nurtured while they design new games or recreate ones from the past. In the image above you see the outline of the accompanying course we provide. GameGo comes with a  multi-lesson online course to help users to learn the basics of making your own retro games. The course aims to guide students to understand and learn the software and hardware knowledge of game development starting with a simple game based on graphical programming, gradually deepening, and iterating continuously to make a relatively complex, multi-level and story-telling game project. The course provides a large number of game examples for students to understand the concepts and principles through improvement and optimization.
 

Sleek & Thoughtful Design

Our designers carefully selected the most suitable materials, keeping the layout familiar and intuitive to use within a handheld sized console.

Awesome service with super fast delivery. The chat option really helped me choose the products, know they were in stock and would be delivered in time. The items were posted the same day and I couldn't believe it when they arrived from Perth to Melbourne in 3 days! Thanks for your wonderful support - our students were able to complete their robotic projects in time.
