gambi_abo is a series of do-it-yourself (DIY) cardboard-based game controllers. Each controller has approachable and accessible building instructions for how to create controllers using easy to find interface devices. With gambi_abo, players can make controllers for the games they choose, not the ones a certain company decides are the best for its platforms. The project is under a CC-BY-SA license.
The project is based on the following principles:
Politics at the foreground: No gatekeeping, no commodification. Bring politics into your games!
Focus on accessibility & affordability: GambiCons are cheap, easy to make & modify, and work in different contexts.
Low barriers of entry: Minimal tinkering with electronics or software.
Free & open licenses: Don’t worry about a big corporation deciding what you can do with cardboard controllers & creations.
