Includes 35+ games that can be played.
Vostok Inc. developer Nosebleed Interactive trades space capitalism for retro-colored arcade management in the newly unveiled Arcade Paradise, coming to PCs and consoles later this year.
In Arcade Paradise, players are cast as Ashley, a teenager trying to turn the family’s small town laundry into a busy retro arcade, somewhere in the 1990s.
What follows is a game with two halves; On the one hand, Ashley has to complete tedious chores ̵
A real story and sense of progression is promised when the arcade slowly flourishes (Doug Cockle, voice actor for Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher games even appears as Ashley’s dad), but Arcade Paradise also has another side.
All the arcades Ashley invests in (currently number 35 and counts according to Nosebleed’s Andreas Firnigl) are fully playable games in themselves, all taking their warning from three decades of gaming – covering everything from early vector games to the 32-bit era – and all with their own game, missions and points with high scores. It is even possible to play several of them collaboratively or competitively with up to four local players.
You can get a taste of Arcade Paradise’s enthusiastic retro imitation – and rather more mundane aspects – in the trailer above. And if you’ve eager to try arcade management, the game will be released on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S and Switch later this year.
