Description

In the alternate future year 20XX, video games and arcades are still thriving and surviving. Within a tiny vintage arcade, a number of pro gamers, scorechasers, operators, and cosplayers seek to live out their dreams within that tiny community.

But as you discover on joining this motley crew of dreamers, life on the edge of pixels and scanlines can be a pretty crazy business, indeed. Find employment, find love, find whatever it is you're looking for... or it's game over.
