Android OS and Playstore games?

Unread post by ftdomen » Tue Jan 28, 2020 4:21 pm

Will this device get an Android OS & if so would it be able to play games like Dragon Quest 8, Evoland & Stardew Valley ?

We have no plan to port the Android OS.

Stardew Valley might be playable under linux (it was for other boards)

I have a nagging feeling (hope?) that someone will eventually hack together an Android image for this awesome little device :D

It will be difficult to operate without a touchscreen. Somebody will need to write a driver to convert the dpad to a virtual mouse in android.

Yeah for sure.. such an awesome little device to hack and fool around with, so much potential! Imagine being able to easily swap microsd (or multi-boot ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป, see viewtopic.php?f=187&t=37508) to batocera, lakka, ubuntu, android, etc. depending on what you need to do 8-)

Or perhaps the analogue stick as virtual mouse?
