The latest open source retro gaming console: The Recalbox

Recalbox allows you to re-play a variety of videogame consoles and platforms in your living room, with ease! Recalbox OS is free, open source and designed to let you create your very own Recalbox in no time! Use Raspberry Pi, ODROID or even PC (x86)!

A retrogaming platform

Recalbox offers a wide selection of consoles and game systems — from the very first arcade systems to the NES, the MEGADRIVE, 32-bit platforms (such as the Playstation) and even the Nintendo 64.

With homebrews and hacksDiscover games never released on console

Homebrews are games entirely created by independant developers. Many are unexpected surprises, and will make you have a great time!

Hacks are modified original games. They keep all, or just parts of the graphics and gameplay of a game and differ in the story, the difficulty and the atmosphere. Some are considered full-fledged, original games like 'Super Mario Bros. 4' (hack of Super Mario World), or 'The Legend Of Zelda - Parallels Worlds' (hack of 'A link to the past')
