Gamers tend to be really into technology, after all, we spend so much time playing with it that we might as well get to know it better right? And what could be more fun than creating something from nothing and showing your friends how clever you are at making things? With Retro Gadgets, you can do just that! Retro Gadgets is an out-of-the-ordinary title that invites players to design, customize and share their own gadgets. Now, this indie game is pretty cool, so, let's talk about it!

About the game

Surely you have ever faced a disassembly task. It doesn't matter if it was to clean a console, replace a component in your PC or fix the washing machine at home. Even if you haven't, you can learn with the cool Retro Gadgets. This title is like a dream come true for any technology lover. This is a deep simulator that allows you to build portable devices, consoles, calculators, and even components for your PC.

Starting the game you'll find yourself in front of a table full of various pieces of electronics. From there, you must combine them until they become real gadgets. For example, the first thing you need to do is take a screwdriver and remove the top part of the device. Then, you must use the software to connect the circuit, and finally, you will be able to start using it. Once you've built whatever you want, you can customize it by changing the color of the case, adding stickers, or even writing your name on it. It's actually a pretty good simulator for playing around with electronics, without the possibility of permanently damaging anything.

Of course, as the name implies there are plenty of retro gadgets involved in this game, and what this basically means is that you will have them as tools and parts at your disposal. Using parts from old virtual pets, MP3 players, calculators, and just about every gadget you can imagine.

Fun while learning?

One of the best things about this game is that it is actually educational too. Similar to games like Minecraft, Retro Gadgets is a great way to learn new skills and practice them at the same time. But given that this is more educational for tech geeks it would be more akin to games like Game Builder Garage on the Nintendo Switch, where you will have a lot of fun while learning to do something you love.

The element of sharing your creations with other users is really important, not only because you can export them as fully working computer programs, but also because to learn from them. That's right, you can actually do some reverse engineering and see how others have designed their creations. You can follow their steps and try to improve yours, and most importantly, you can gain insight from people who are far more experienced than you.

Then, once you're done with the game, you can go ahead and share your creations with the rest of the community. The game has been developed by a small team, so the fact that there is already quite a large user base shows that the developers did a great job. In addition, these are the kind of games that encourage creativity and allow us to learn how to make something from scratch.
