The PiCon Pi team had an idea and wanted to see how their idea would look before spending a dime on hardware. Their idea: remove the barrier of entry for young game developers and make game deployment easier. They wanted handheld consoles that you could build yourself and game software built in. They commissioned a game browser app that would be the foundation for the operating system on the hand held. We got right to work.
