Piepacker

Piepacker is a new multiplayer gaming platform to play retro games with friends on your web browser. It comes with a constantly growing pre-built catalogue of more than 60 awesome 馃暪️ retro games from the NES to the PlayStation 1. To make the online living room experience complete, we included a video chat to see and talk to the people you are playing with 馃く: 

  • Users create an account and play multiplayer retro games online 馃敟
  •  No installation required, directly in your Chrome browser.
  •  Use our magic URLs: share the room link with friends, they click, you play together. Your friends don't even need an account.
  • Integrated video chat with game-themed AR 3D masks 馃帴 馃懞
  •  60+ licensed retro games pre-installed & ready to play!! From the NES to PS1.
  • ...or bring your own games digitally (ROM) [for Premium Members] or physically, thanks to our proprietary cartridge reader: 馃摕  the PieReader.

The PieReader

This exclusive and pro-pie-tary accessory to our platform will be available with 3 system adapters to import your own cartridges (All versions supported: PAL/JAP/US) directly to the multiplayer world of Piepacker.  It currently supports :

  • NES (not Famicom)
  • Super NES
  • SEGA Mega Drive / Genesis 
In the last months, our team has been hard at work building a fully functioning hardware prototype. Our industrial designers and engineers have built a really exciting product! The Kickstarter campaign will help us take our project through the final steps of development (hardware finalization, assembly and shipping), as well as build more compatible retro console adapters and bring even more games to the platform in 2021. Here is a demo of our hardware prototype (not final colors):
