Arduino Video Game for the Neighbourhood

Kris Temmerman's house/office has a store window that he tries to make use of as much as possible. In the past he built projections but really wanted to make something interactive. Since the area has a lot of loitering youth and many people passing by he thought it would be nice to make an old fashion arcade box anyone can play.

To make it a little bit more challenging, he set out to run the hole thing on an Arduino without without an external computer - just to see how much power it actually has. If this was not enough, he also wanted to try to make everything himself - from his own led screen, with his own “display driver” and display list, a 8-bit sound library, and of course the game itself. The only thing someone else made was the music for the game, composed by Annegreet Sledsens.
