Opening Arcade: Level 2

Vintage Arcade Games, Music and Drinks

18 Dec 2010

We played old skool arcade games like Pong, Donkey Kong Jr, Space Invaders, Breakout and Mortal Kombat. Dj's Master Fader and The Snail spun some appropriate tunes, and if you couldn't beat your opponent at Mortal Kombat, you could always try to out-dance them on Dance Dance Revolution. A heated hodgepodge of fun, competition, frustration and pictures of naked women.

Level 2: Arcade

Arcade is about the history of gaming culture. We successively completed Level 1 in November 2010. Seven new interactive gaming installations were made during the Dev Camp, and presented at Sensor Fest. Level 2 is all about video arcade machines and was opened on Saturday December 18, at Mediamatic Bank. Come by anytime before March 27th 2011 to have a go at the games yourself. As for now: the pictures.
