Australia’s best arcade game makers are now working on their next game.
It’s called The Arcades.
Developer, game developer and co-owner of Melbourne-based Arcadesafe, Josh Williams has been working on the project since March, but this week he released the first official trailer.
Williams said the team is focused on bringing The Arcages to the Australian gaming community.
“We want to do it right, and we want to be a part of the community,” he said.
“The Arcades are something we’ve always wanted to do in Australia.
It’s a community game and I think it’s a fantastic way to introduce people to our business and get them interested.”
Williams’ partner and co founder, Sam Rimmer, said they’ve been working hard to make The Arcadia a success, even though it’s in early development.
“[Williams] has been really committed to making sure it is as close to the finished product as possible,” he told ABC News.
“It’s a really, really long way to go, but he’s really got a lot of fun in his belly.”
Williams said he’s been working in his studio with his team, who will be building out the game’s visuals and gameplay.
“We’ve got some really amazing artists working on it,” he added.
“They’re making it really look amazing.”
Williams says The Arcads’ trailer will be available to download later this month.
The game will be playable at some locations, but only when the game is launched.
While the trailer isn’t an official trailer, it’s the first look we’ve seen of the game so far.
A few weeks ago, Williams launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the game, which is currently $15,000 short of its goal of $35,000.
