Edinburgh, Lothian, United Kingdom, 2012/12/13 - To build an arcade in the UK like the ones thriving in Japan. Classic games. New games. Everything in-between. 3 floors. 200+ games - EpicArcadeProject.com.
Epic Arcade Project launches a Kickstarter funding campaign in order to build a classic videogame arcade in the heart of Edinburgh, UK.
Epic Arcade Project aims to launch a classic videogaming arcade in the United Kingdom similar to those that are already established in Japan, offering all the classic games of yesteryear as well as a selection of new games. It is not just 'another mediocre' videogame arcade, but one that will create a legacy which showcases the greatness of arcades from the 70s through to the 90s.
Epic Arcade Project (epicarcadeproject.com) is located in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, since it is a flourishing tourist spot that can attract gamers from all over the globe as well as local residents. The main objective of Epic Arcade Project is to reignite the passion and social aspect of arcades reflective in previous decades as well as to encourage and promote similar endeavors throughout the world.
Throughout the entire lifecycle of the project, individuals from across the globe are involved in the shaping of the arcade and its associated media, including its website, graphical content, social interaction and other digital media work. In time the website will also allow users to purchase advance day-pass tickets in a direct manner. Epic Arcade Project will charge a one-off entry fee into the Arcade, with every machine inside being on permanent free-play. Pricing details can be found on the website.
The highlight event so far of Epic Arcade Project is the recent launch of their funding campaign on Kickstarter which is the leader in the industry. The campaign with Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing campaign which means if they fail to secure the total funds required they won't receive any of the funds pledged. The accumulated funding will be distributed to the necessary areas of the project, all of which are detailed on the Kickstarter campaign page.
There is also a variety of advertising and sponsorship packages available.
The expected grand opening of Epic Arcade Project is on July 22, 2013.
