A new Android-based mini-console has taken the Kickstarter world by storm, smashing its funding goal in just one day.

The system–called GameStick–reached its goal of $100,000 in just 24 hours and is already close to $150,000. PlayJam is building the console and promises that developers of all sizes can create games for it.

“So far we have identified 200 titles that will be great to play on GameStick but we are working with our network of over 250 developers including great studios such as Madfinger, Hutch, Disney and others to bring you the best line-up. What’s really cool is that the average cost of a game on GameStick will be just a few dollars and many will be free to play,” PlayJam explains.

GameStick is the same size as a USB stick and attaches to a TV via its HDMI port–controllers attach the console via Bluetooth. The console will cost $79 and uses an Amlogic 8726-MX CPU, with 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of on-board flash storage.

“People are always on the go. Traditional consoles are big. We set out to create a big screen games console that was so small you could pop it in your pocket. It’s tiny! So small in fact that GameStick fits inside its own controller so you can take all your games with you to any TV you like, anywhere. Simply plug it into the HDMI slot, grab the controller and play away,” the company adds.
