It’s been some time since we did a proper art update for Arcade Spirits. (Which now has a swanky new website!) So, let’s rectify that. Here’s some new artwork which was introduced in this month’s Patreon build, which you can play if you’re backing at the $5 or up level!
We begin our tale at DonnaWood, the mansion of an 80s pop idol. It’s been abandoned for years and is going to ruin, but the treasure trove of classic arcade games underneath is being auctioned off…
Overseeing the auction is the enigmatic and Rich-as-Creosote Hamza (aka Sir Not Appearing In This Blog) who tells the story of the MTV queen.
While the place is in pretty bad shape, and, well, the games are in pretty bad shape too… Naomi’s super excited, all the same!
And hey, some of the games apparently still have power! So let’s take a few minutes to kick back and enjoy one of them. You’ve earned it through your hard work and effort, right? Right.
Fun and games, indeed.
All this thanks to the excellent background art by Taylor Rose and character art by Molly Nemecek.
Oh, and if you want a sneak preview of the music of Arcade Spirits, we’ve got you covered over on Twitter. I strongly suggest following our twitter feed; we’re using it to send out micro-updates like that, between the major blog postings.
Exciting times for us, in the run-up to the April release of our public demo. Stick around, there’s nothing but good stuff ahead.
