NerdConsole was designed to be relatively straightforward to build yourself and to jump in and start making games for. To that end, the designs for the physical bits of the system as instructions on how to build them are freely available.

If you are uncomfortable ordering PCBs on your own (or your favorite PCB producer only sells them in sets of 5 or more) or you don't have access to a 3D printer, most of the parts needed are expected to be available for sale. That is not the case yet, but once parts are available, a link will be provided here.

The goal with NerdConsole is to provide game developers as large of a market as possible. This should be true whether they intend to give away their games or sell them. To help with that goal, the PPU software is "closed source" but is available for free. This is to prevent multiple modified versions of the PPU software from splintering the market. I firmly believe that requiring modified PPU software versions for specific games takes away from this.
