May 20th, 2021: A new LEDmePlay® game comes to your screen: Let's do low-gravity taxi flying in the asteroid belt with Ceres Cab Corp.
February 10th, 2021: Have you ever been a bit unhappy that you always need your computer to change the game on LEDmePlay®? We have the solution. Try LEDmePI! LEDmePI is a Raspberry Pi 3 based programmer that allows you to upload games onto the LEDmePlay®. It comes with a nice touchpad. You can learn how to build it here. For LEDmePI it was necessary to slightly customize all of our games. No worries, there is no difference if you want to upload them with the ordinary Arduino IDE. However, they are now available as ZIP packages. Each of them contains a Makefile and a small title screenshot that gets displayed when you select the game. You can ignore both if you do not use LEDmePI.
September 3rd, 2020: Unfortunately, we cannot show up on faires this year. However, here is a small gift: Vega Wars. This new game is a kind of space opera for the LEDmePlay®.
December 10th, 2019: We have teamed up with mechapro GmbH. They sell an Arduino interface board that simplifies the assembly of the LEDmePlay®. Furthermore, you can purchase the necessary RGB LED matrices on the same page.
August 24th, 2019: We improved Warehouse by fixing a small bug in the undo function and removing a graphical glitch which has occured if the player has performed a special movement pattern.
August 17th&18th, 2019: No comment needed: Maker Faire Hannover 2019. Outstanding!

April 11th, 2019: We uploaded a small update of Mimas which we have already shown at Maker Faire Ruhr. It contains a scrolling star background in the first level and bosses in different colors so that it looks more juicy.
March 24th, 2019: We exhibited on Maker Faire Ruhr in the DASA in Dortmund. This time we were in the "Stahlhalle" close to the old converter that had a vital role in the steel production. The organizers have awarded us the "Maker of Merit" pennant. Thank you very much. We will be happy to be there again next year!
This time, we brought our second self-built video game console, TRIme, and showed it to the crowd. Children and adults alike had fun with it. That makes us very happy!
Furthermore, we presented a new Sokoban-like game for the LEDmePlay®: Warehouse
January 3rd, 2019: Here comes our late christmas present: Tetromino, a new Tetris-like game for the LEDmePlay®.
December 22nd, 2018: A user reported an incompatibility between our games and the newest version of the Timer Library. For now, our games require Timer Library V1.3 which must be copied to the Arduino directory on your computer. The path is something as C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\libraries. All links to the Timer Library on our website point now at version 1.3.
October 7th, 2018: We showed our games again in the Binarium in Dortmund. Occasion was the Star Wars exhibition closing event.

January 26th, 2018: All our games have been updated to make them fully compatible with the LEDmePlay® Joypad and the LEDmePlayBoy. Special versions of the games are no longer required. Now, everything runs out-of-the-box.
December 22nd, 2017: New hardware has arrived: We have developed the LEDmePlay® Joypad you can build on your own. This makes you independent from rare replicates of classic joysticks and the lottery to get good old ones on ebay.
December 13th, 2017: Our christmas present: A new snake-like game: Sneak. Furthermore, we have updated and improved Amok. Finally, if you like our breakout-style game Wall'n'Ball, you can now create your own playfields with Wall'n'Ball Edit.

March 27th, 2017: Mithotronic@Maker Faire Ruhr. Although it was a bit too bright at our booth due to large windows and perfect weather, it was a great event once again.

The games will be available for download soon.
