In what is one of the most simplest but genuinely clever game ideas in a while, Arcadecraft tasks players with managing their own '80s arcade. You must satisfy customers by adjusting pricing, conveniences, and adapting to the times as new inventions, genres, and cabinets are released unto the world.
This management sim (in the style of the classic Theme Park) will come to PC and Xbox Live Arcade sometime after October. Developer Firebase Industries (Orbitron: Revolution) are creating over 100 original cabinets that capture the various technological innovations of '80s arcades, including Laserdisc gaming and two-player games.
I love a whimsical, fun management sim and what would I want to manage more than an arcade during my childhood years? OK, a maybe a brothel or KFC.
I felt genuine delight and a little confusion from Sony's gamescom press conference
