The GPA is inspired by (and runs) RetroPie. RetroPie is built on top of Raspbian, EmulationStation, RetroArch & Libretro, etc. If you haven’t checked out those projects, please do.

What you are buying here is a pre-built Game Pie Advance unit. Keep in mind, even with us building the console and configuring it for you, you will need to spend time to configure it according to your needs (Wifi, button mapping, etc). Keep in mind the DIY nature of this project before proceeding with your purchase.

A MicroUSB OTG adaptor is included for you to plug in your keyboard to facilitate the console's configuration.

  • 1x Game Pie Advance Kit v2.1 (\w 3.2" TFT LCD)
  • 1x Raspberry Pi Zero W
  • 1x 1A Power Supply
  • 1x 8GB Class10 MicroSD Card
  • 1x Black MicroUSB OTG Cable
  • 2x 3.7V 1000 mAh Lithium Polymer Flat Cells (batteries)
  • Time and labour to configure it work according to your needs.

The base price does NOT include these, you NEED these in your cart as well:

      Please read the following notes carefully

      Be ready to read a lot on the Retro Pie, Emulation Station and Game Pie Advance's forums for advanced support.

      Due to the DIY nature of this item, no warranty will be offered on opened consoles thus we strongly advise you to get a MicroSD card with enough memory to prevent you from ever opening the console to upgrade it.

      Buying this console will require you to read, test and learn. If you are not ready to spend time, we strongly discourage you from purchasing this device.

      Volume Controls are REVERSED due to space constraints.

      Some imperfections can be present, as this is a handmade unit, not a mass-manufactured one.
