Backstory : Why Make Arcade Machines ?

The story behind arcadream ® Next Gen arcade machines.

Reading tips about Cyberpunk 2077. Décembre 2020 arcadream ® is registered in Google Maps as Cabinet Maker but what we are really into is connecting generations of video game lovers.

That's what got us started a few years ago and that's how we came up with a slick yet affordable arcade machine to play both retro and modern video games.

My experience with video games began on an arcade machine in the 1980s, in a french cafe when I was just under 10 years old.

I remember that like if it was yesterday. It was on a dedicated terminal and the game was Space Invaders long before the creation of the Street Fighter arcade machine.

This good memory is forever printed in my memory. Later on, I fell in love with the famous racing game Out Run. At the time, I found it to be breathtakingly realistic.

It was a few years before the arrival in the family home of the Amstrad CPC 464 computer and before Mario and the NES.

Now, I have a son who chats online with his mates. They have met online years ago while playing Fortnite, Overwatch or For Honor on PS4. It all started with the multiplayer game Plants vs Zombies when he was only 8 years old.

It was on that occasion that I rediscovered video games. Modern games have great graphics and gameplay that lives up to the best of the 21st century.

In short, that's when i realized that modern games no longer have anything to do with the era of the Sega Saturn or the Nintendo 64.

However, I have to admit that my lack of video game experience over the past twenty years means that I am completely left behind when it comes to taking on a new game.

On the one hand, I wanted to play with a joystick and buttons on a multi-game arcade machine. Partly, because it looks better than a home console. On the other hand, I really wanted to get my hands on the most recent games.

Many people between the ages of 30 and 50 have confided in me that they are in the same situation. So I looked for a solution to bring together the best of both worlds.

The first problem is that a vintage arcade machine takes up a lot of space. The second is that it is difficult to follow a game tutorial during a game.

Looking for ways to make my own life easier back in 2018. The solution to these two problems gradually came to the surface. It is called the arcadream Slim ® terminal.

A high-end wi-fi terminal with minimal footprint (less than 30 cm deep) allowing me to play online with my son (and sometimes against him) while keeping the game instructions displayed on a secondary screen, just above the main terminal screen.
