Well, almost. A project headed by Robert Pelloni, the nD is a new handheld gaming console "designed from the ground up to be as fair as possible to all involved- gamers and developers alike." According to the system's website, there are two games confirmed to be in development for the nD- the infamous "bob's game" and a puzzle game called Greyout.

While there's no set release date, once the nD has launched you'll be able to order it directly from the nD website or a third party's website, preloaded with the third party's game. The nD will also be sold in stores with games preloaded onto it.

The nD's Game Store is being worked on by industry professionals from Silicon Valley. To develop a game for the nD, you simply need to download the SDK and create an account to pledge your game.

Looks interesting I suppose. The one thing it has going for it over Android and iPhone is buttons. If enough indies hop on board, why the heck not?

I wonder if it will actually ever exist? Also, didn't that "Bob's Game" guy go insane or something?

Nah, it was viral advertising.

Haha... Well, I do hope that it ends up being one crazy-amazing game, for his sake. I totally forgot about it until this thread.

How do you feel about the handheld?

This kind of sounds really dumb. But only because it involves Bob's Game, and I think that guy has a lot of issues he needs to work out before he can try to be connected to something that is all about fairness and good vibes and all of that jazz.

@ploot

It's a good idea in theory... I don't know how many people will buy into it other than the artsy indie community. IF bob's game actually gets released I'll probably buy one just so I can finally play it.

If it was viral advertising then I have even less sympathy for the man. Andy Kaufman antics can be exciting, but it doesn't do anything for me if, ultimately, it's just pushing a product.

It is interesting to see how they're marketing the ND, though. Gaming looks like it's building its own grunge movement. It'll be interesting to see where it goes.
