Arduboy MAX

using a 2.42" OLED display and Game Boy buttons with a diy board around the atmega32u4

I would have preferred to use one of the many spare arduino pro micros, but the arduboy gang used pins that aren't broken out on. So I've bought 2 TQFP atmega32u4 chips and started to design a board.

There is an alternative bootloader if you want to stick with pro micro. And I think pro micro pins is already capable if you don't use the RGB led.

hm, the pinout of the SPI display uses pins (CS, DC) that aren't broken out on the Sparkfun pro micro I have. The goal is having the same experience without "tinkering with bootloaders". But thanks a bunch for the link, might come in handy if it doesn't work the way I thought! :)

Have you considered a teensy 2 or a-star mini? The latter has interesting colors too! (and no, I'm not saying you should use them, making your own is much cooler)

oh you mean to check if all the pins are broken out? I could check that on a teensy, good idea, thanks!
