As you can see (or perhaps not) from the above image, the readjusted aspect ratio leaves something to be desired, but the fact that you can actually run a game on the new laptop’s control strip is pretty fucking cool, right?

The touch bar is intended to replace the traditional function keys in favour of a digital, more versatile input – but hey, if you want to blast back demons from a hell dimension with it too, clearly you can.

The touch bar does have more practical implications for gaming too, of course.

An accompanying Tweet from the man behind the mod shows us that the UI alone can be displayed on the bar, potentially freeing up much more of the main screen for straight-up gaming.

Dual screen gaming, implemented in subtler and more refined manner than the Nintendo DS could manage? I’m interested to see where this goes.
