The Kickstarter-funded GCW Zero open-source gaming handheld console is finally starting to see more games out there for those that backed the device last year.

The GCW Zero was successfully funded back in January of 2013 as a device a bit like the Pandora console. The GCW Zero runs off Linux and features an Ingenic JZ4770 1GHz MIPS SoC with Vivante GC860 graphics, 3.5-inch 320x240 LCD display, 512MB of DDR2 RAM, and 16GB of internal storage.

Since the launch of the GCW Zero there's just been a handful of game releases for this 512MB MIPS device: Griffon Legend, The Sqrxz Series, Xump, and Tile World. This month though there's been two new game releases alone, compared to the most recent previous release being from August.

The new GCW Zero titles released this month are Enigma and Wetspot 2.
