Hello.

Here is our AVR project we are working since late 2011.
It is ideal platform for lowres games RPG, JumpAndRun, 2D Platform etc etc.
It is based on Jerrys AVGA platform.
(He is also behind all RetroWiź hardware, HW designer).
I am WWW and FORUM admin, enclosure designer.
We call our platform RetroWiz. (from “Retrocomputer Wizard” or “Retrogaming Wizard”).
