BEST NEWS ALL DAY!! Arcadecraft, out now on XBLIG

#1XTGhost85Posted 2/3/2013 8:39:53 PM
Arcadecraft, the 80s arcade management sim from Firebase Industries, is available now on Xbox Live Indie Games for 240 MS Points ($3). In Arcadecraft, players must dig themselves out of debt with the latest craze in entrepreneurship, starting an arcade. As owner and manager, players purchase arcade machines, position them around the space, name their arcade, paint the walls, change the floors, and add graphics and neon wherever they deem necessary.

Arcadecraft has almost 80 arcade machines of different design, each with adjustable difficulty and price settings, and some games will jam, break down and need servicing as customers use and abuse them.

Firebase Industries, the team behind Orbitron: Revolution, has Arcadecraft on Steam Greenlight and is working on a touch-based Windows 8 version.

Yeah, it has been out for a few days now. I wanted to try it out, but didn't want to spend 240 on it.

Strength is the only thing that matters in this world, everything else is just a delusion for the weak.

wow, I thought this was going to be an actual arcade release because it looked that good.

Last thing I remember was someone posting a video back in Dec.

Any reviews yet or opinions from people who've played it?

Yes, this reads more like advertising than a "Hey, this game is cool" post.

Thread should be deleted.

So this "game" is like GAME ROOM?

Er...without the ability to actually PLAY the dang games.

Wow. Fun times indeed. And I thought those "Train Driver" and "Garbage Collector" SIMS from Japan several years ago were the stupidest video games ever made.

I like it, but the passage of time needs to be slowed down, the game length extended, and there's a glitch where the coin boxes on the cabinets fill up ($500) in under five seconds (and repeats indefinitely, but you don't actually get that much money every time you empty it).

There are 80 machines. No $3 indie game is going to give you 80 games.
