Shakopee, Minnesota – Newcomer Maniac Games today is pleased to announce development of a new freemium title called, Insane Arcade. Players will get a chance to start with one tiny arcade and not only build that one to great success, but franchise out and build multiple arcades at once. Part sim part strategy with the social elements mixed in around them, you will be able to visit “neighbors” arcades, play mini-games, and try to attract so called “legends.”
Controls will be simple and intuitive for players as the team has been working on ways to try to minimize the UI and focus mostly on game play. This is done by intermixing some of the menu buttons within the scene itself. For example, the way players will order machines is by tapping on a magazine that’s sitting on the front counter.
Attracting patrons to your arcade will truly be a strategic experience as well, as you talk to your patrons and “guide” them to machines they are looking for. Maniac games also promises to launch the game with a whole slew of custom arcade games.
“We want the community to have access to a wealth of content. We literally want there to be hundreds of machines to pick from,” says Joe Heitzman, one of the lead designers.
The game is set for release within the Fall of 2011 for idevices first with a port to android coming sometime early next year. The developers have set up a Kick-starter page to help with certain parts of development.
