Make your own video games in The MagPi #73

Design, create and distribute your own games with a Raspberry Pi

It’s never been easier to make and publish your own video games. And the Raspberry Pi is the perfect platform for gaming.

In The MagPi magazine issue 73, we look at how to design video games and use a variety of Raspberry Pi tools to bring your ideas to life. We also look at how to distribute your games, so others can play them; and how to join game jams and community groups.

AIY Edge TPU Accelerator

Google is back with an all-new device for Raspberry Pi. The AIY Edge TPU Accelerator is a small dongle you attach to a Raspberry Pi. When connected it vastly speeds up the speed of AI models, enabling your Raspberry Pi to quickly detect objects in images or video streams, and perform text recognition and creation.
