Like sim games? Like arcades? Old? This game is for you.
Music is a special thing because everyone is wrong on everything but it all works out in the end and we all get high as shit.

I am intrigued.

I have enjoyed SimCity and RollerCoaster Tycoon back in the day(s). I don't think I've ever actually aspired to be a mayor (other than on Foursquare), but I enjoyed simulating it. I do, however, LOVE rollercoasters and quite enjoyed getting to design my own and run a park (though I don't have any aspirations to do either IRL).

Anyway, this seems like it could be a fun management game around a theme I can certainly get behind. I'd like it if they could combine this with something like Game Room that came out a few years ago where you could place real classic games in your arcade ... AND PLAY THEM! Alternatively, it might be fun if you could also "design your own games" to put in your arcade from a bunch of elements. This would be more RollerCoaster Tycoon. I'm not sure how much I care about just the management side of the arcade business, which is all this seems to be about. But it's early, so I guess I'll just wait and see. I'll certainly be interested in checking this out whenever it comes out.

It'd be cool if Ho tried playing this IRL.

They should have set this in 2010 and made the goal "last as long as you can before you inevitably go bankrupt."

The only way to win is to not play, essentially.

Have you played it? It seems like this is one of those games that is impossible to lose like Tiny Tower.

I downloaded the demo last night, but I haven't taken a look at it yet.
