Arcadecraft lets you manage an old-timey arcade

Of course, all arcades are old-timey arcades nowadays, however, that hasn’t stopped Firebase Industries from announcing Arcadecraft. The arcade management sim is currently in development for release on the PC and Xbox Live Arcade and it looks amazing.

Arcadecraft will allow players to purchase, position, and redecorate over 100 cabinets based on the 1980-1990 era of arcade games. These cabinets include a few titles clearly based on the classics including Crawlers (Centipede), Space Rocks (Asteroids), Alien Landing (Space Invaders), Gorilla (Donkey Kong), Son of Gorilla (Donkey Kong Jr.), Cybroids 1999 (Robotron 2080) and more.

Be sure to check out the trailer above and the screenshots at Firebase’s official website. As I said, they look amazing. And if you’re going to be attending this weekend’s PAX Prime expo, the guys from Firebase will be roaming the show floor as well. If you ask real nice, maybe they’ll let you have a private demo with the game.
