Indie City Arcade Launch Party

The moment you have all been waiting for is upon us: the launch of the Indie City Arcade cabinet at the Emporium Arcade Bar. We have been working tirelessly, painting, soldering, testing and loving this beast into a truly magnificent creature that we can’t wait to unleash to the world.

For those that have been living under a rock the Indie City Arcade cabinet is powered by pure indie dreams and love. We ran a game jam last month and were blown away by the variety and creativity of the games submitted.

(Imagine four scrawny guys lugging around a heavy arcade cabinet. It happened.)
