According to the product page, the new book is packed with 164 pages of content. If you’re looking to emulate retro computers and old school gaming consoles, this is your best official starting point.

It not only covers emulation but also how to create your own retro gaming projects with the Raspberry Pi. Creating a portable gaming arcade or full-sized cabinet is on the table and broken down into steps for curious beginners.

In addition to creating your own platforms, you can also dabble in creating your own games from scratch. Readers will find introductions to using things like Python and Pygame for programming one-of-a-kind games at home.
