The Tux Junior Arcade Cabinet is finally complete. It's puplic debut took place at the 2015 Arcade@Dilworth kick-off event for Philly Tech Week. Not just another bar-top MAME cabinet, Tux Junior showcased three Free and Open Source games, Tux Junior, Super Tux and Super Tux Cart. The people's choice crowned Super Tux Kart as this year's winner in the "Rated Fun" department. The fast paced action of this driving game kicked it.
-- Well played Super Tux Kart Developers, Well Played.
These are some shots of the Tux Junior arcade cabinet being built along the way. The plan was to run this on a Raspberry PI but we weren't able to run nearly as many games due to OpenGL compatability issues. A MacMini was used instead. A Raspberry PI will work well if you only want to play old school Mame classics.
