  GameRunner is an Openmoko Linux distribution. It aims convert
the Freerunner open mobile phone in a Linux-based handheld
game console.
It is simple, and contains cool and suitable open source games for 
Linux mobile devices.

We have been working in this idea for a couple of months (in 2009),
improving current openmoko games, and writting a game control useful
for any game. 
Our first idea is always to have with us a SD full of games to play.

Because the last two months we did not do much, I am announcing it,
so other gamers can try it.

All the games which use the new gamecontrol does not work
well the first time you run these. After, all go okey.

Moreover, we need to improve that "general" game control
that we are writting, because it is not so cool yet.
But well, you can play if you know well it :)

For other games we have worked improving speed as well.

If we get some free time to continue we will add super nintendo
emulator (which we already have tested) and new versions 
of the new game control.

After, we'll add more games specifically built for this game distro.

The web site has some docs as well about our work.
