'Trance of the 80's arcade' - courtesy Empire of the Claw

 

This page is dedicated to the 1980's arcade scene. If you weren't part of the arcade scene you weren't jack. That was where it was happening and where our youth was spent. I don't think any of us really realized at the time that these really were the best of times.

Now were older, have house payments, car payments, responsibilities, some with wives, some with kids and bills bills bills. One scam after another. Too many crooks to count. Everyone getting in your wallet saying that your money isn't really yours it's actually theirs and that somehow you owe them nearly all of it. They always have a knack for knowing when you have a little extra coming because then is when the crisis occurs. Companies asking your dedication, loyalty and devotion yet are unwilling to return the same. Does this all sound familiar?

A quest in the memory of a simpler time, days gone by and sorely missed. The last waning days of innocence.

Yes. Were overloaded with projects. Being that I'm not an expert on every cabinet's layout, it is very helpful to get your input on any given project. What's worked for you, what could work better for me. Please drop a line and let us all know where we've gone wrong or right. Your input is welcomed.

Current Projects : 63

Below are the current projects in various stages of development.   As you can see there's quite a number of them. This documentary helps keep it clear for me where I left off and hopefully can help you with your projects. You can click on the cabinet below to take you to that project.
