No, that’s not a typo, Arcade Paradise is a game about running a laundromat. Though this particular one aspires to be something greater.
Paradise by a neon light
Pretty much anyone over a certain age can remember playing arcade games. And if you’re anything like I am, then you likely remember playing them basically anywhere other than an actual arcade.
I can recall spending more than a few hours, playing in my local pizza shops… and laundromats. It’s funny, but seemingly every one of them had arcade games, and that’s kind of the premise of Arcade Paradise.
Revealed at this weekend’s E3 (virtual) show, Arcade Paradise sets gamers in the role of Ashley, who’s just taken over the family business – King Wash Laundry. But Ashley has bigger dreams than folding people’s wash, and plans on slowly converting the place into a den of neon and video screens.
From Nosebleed Interactive and Wired Productions, this is Arcade Paradise.
Arcade Paradise is a 90’s-fuelled retro arcade adventure. You play as Ashley, and you’ve just been given the keys to the family laundromat. Rather than washing rags for a living, you decide to turn the laundromat into the ultimate arcade. Choose from over 35 games to be in the arcade inspired by three decades of gaming – all of which are playable with high scores to set. Stay one step ahead of your father, manage and invest profits, and build your very own Arcade Paradise!Wired Productions
