Thank you for your interest in the Intel® Edison Compute Module (IoT).
As I mentioned a couple of months ago in Retro Games Emulator (https://communities.intel.com/message/485050#485050) since the Edison does not have a display, audio or game input hardware, finding an out-of-the-box solution for your project seems like a futile task.
My suggestion for this kind of projects is to check the Edidoom : Intel Edison based video game console playing Doom (http://2ld.de/edidoom/) article and adapt the process to your specific project.
I’m aware that what you are trying to do is possible, as you can see in this article This Keychain-Sized Game Boy Emulator Is our 90s Dream Come True (https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/43d3gb/this-keychain-sized-game-boy-emulator-is-our-90s-dream-come-true). In it the author mentions that developer Vincent Buso intends to share the files and build instructions, but doesn’t specify when.
I checked the Keymu Demo – open source keychain-sized gaming console (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1gE1o6ogEs) video posted by Vincent Buso himself, and he commented the following a month ago:
Thanks for your interest but it's a very early and unfinished version still, I wouldn't sell it.
Soon I will post the website with files and build instructions though if you feel like building one yourself.
For the rest my (very unused) twitter account is c_Invent.
So I’ll also suggest you to keep looking for any updates from the developer.
If you have any update or question, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Have a nice day.
Thank you for your feedback and for the links that you've kindly sent me - It's much appreciated. However, my understanding of the workings of the Edison module is currently very primitive. Unfortunately, at this point in time, I have only managed to retrieve my board's IP address from the PuTTY terminal. Do you know where I can learn all about how to develop for the Edison?

The best place to start learning about developing for the Edison is the Intel® Edison Board User Guide (https://software.intel.com/en-us/intel-edison-board-user-guide).
Once you are familiar with the basics, I’ll suggest you to check the Intel® Edison Module Documentation (https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/edison/documentation), specially the Resources section, which presents multiple code sample exercises.
Please let me know if you find this information useful.
Have a nice day.
