The toy is called Evoboxx, and it was created by Love Hultén. This Swedish studio recreates games, musical instruments and other tools in a retro style.
Evoboxx is an electronic simulator of the Game of Life, which was popular in the 1970s. The product is unlikely to present much interest for the modern gamer, but the company is not interested in attracting a young audience: the game is made for people who are nostalgic about the past.
The device is made up of a suitcase containing an 8-inch screen, a speaker and a small control panel. The electronic ‘insides’ of Evoboxx were built based on a Raspberry Pi microcomputer. The interface has an authentic retro style.
The point of the game is to launch a cell life simulator by setting up certain conditions, and then observe the results of your choices. Most processes are automated, so the user acts as more of a spectator than a participant. It is still unclear if the game will be made available for purchase.
