Have you ever dreamt of owning your own Retro Arcade? Well know is your chance with Arcadecraft from Firebase Industries.
Arcadecraft puts the player in the role of a 1980 video game arcade entrepreneur, when video games were seen as nothing more than a passing fad to be capitalized on. Bank loan in hand, deep in debt, and tied to a lease, the player must use their finances to purchase arcade machines from the multiple manufacturers and then move and rotate them into position within their arcade. Attracting customers with the hottest new games, players start building a fortune one quarter at a time while navigating the financial rollercoaster ride that was the historic fast rise, immediate collapse, and glorious return of the arcade industry over six full years of accelerated time simulation.
Arcadecraft features near 80 arcade machines in Standup, Cocktail, Cockpit, and Import configurations. Players may change the difficulty and price parameters per machine to discover the ideal payoff settings. They must also keep on top of a pressure cooker of full coin boxes, game malfunctions, and jammed coin slots.
