This isn’t an ordinary arcade and these are not ordinary arcade machines.

Using the nostalgic aesthetic of 1980’s video games, ARCADE’s interactive narrative explores the evolving relationship between players and avatars. This choose-your-own-path experience will fully immerse players in alternate environments in a completely dark shipping container, using 360 degree binaural sound, sensory effects and a bespoke DARKFIELD ARCADE machine for each player. Players will be asked deep existential questions about free will and consciousness in a world where some may win and some may lose…

Every machine offers you the chance to enter the world of the game and choose your own unique journey. As you guide your avatar through a world ravaged by endless war, there are many routes you can take and there are many different outcomes. You can choose a side, win or lose the war, search out a more peaceful route, or join a cult promising a better version of reality. Where will your decisions lead you?
