This leaves only two more character assets to be completed and then Arcadecraft can be considered out of Early Access/Beta.

As well, we have a new cover for the PC version featuring the PC character assets.

We can also say that if you buy Arcadecraft through Humble you will receive Steam Keys for it as soon as they become available.

In case you may have missed it, we also recently updated the build with another new character, bringing the number of completed characters to 12 with 5 still left to be skinned.

Arcadecraft Demo!

That’s right! We have just put up a FREE demo for Arcadecraft playable on Windows PCs.

This demo allows you to play through the first year of the game and experience a lot of the interaction and functionality of Arcadecraft for the PC. You will find almost an hour of gameplay, many of the game characters and events, and a taste of all of the cabinet types available in the game.

This demo is based around the most recent version of the Arcadecraft Beta for PC so there is still incomplete art and the possibility of bugs

Beta News

Hello all!

We just wanted to update everyone on where we are at right now on the Arcadecraft PC Beta front. We have a new build that we are testing that includes a number of new changes, fixes, and improvements. When we release it for upload to Humble we will put out the changelog that lists everything we have done.

The major fix is that European number standards are now supported so the game won’t crash on launch for some users.

We are expecting to be done testing this build early tomorrow and hope that you will have access to it on Wednesday or Thursday. Thank you for your patience!

Arcadecraft Beta for PC Now Available!

The PC version of the Arcadecraft Beta/Early Access is now available through the Humble Store! Currently the game is only available to purchase through the widget below but we are hoping to move it to the main Humble storefront in due time.

ClickToBuy

There is some important information we need to pass onto you if you have already bought it, or if you are thinking of getting it!

Keyboard:

Game controls are mostly listed onscreen except these

  • J,and L: Rotates the Camera
  • I and K: Raise and Lower the Camera
  • F3: Turns on the FPS of the game
  • F4: Turns Shadows on and off to increase performance.

Mouse:

Mouse controls were designed to feel like moving files around on a desktop.

  • Left Click anywhere on the floor to move the camera around.
  • Left Click a machine to select it.
  • Left Click and hold to lift a machine.
  • While lifting a machine, Right Click to turn the machine 90 degrees.
  • While selected and on the floor Right Click and hold a machine to empty its coins.
  • Double click a machine to go it its information screen.
  • To move a machine, first lift it and then move the mouse around.
  • You may bring up the main menu by clicking the ESC UI button in the bottom left corner of the screen.

Recommended Specs:

We simply don`t know the best answer here but we will try to give you some guidelines.

We get 60fps at 1080p with…

  • Radeon HD5850
  • i7 860 chip @ 2.8ghz
  • 8GB of Ram or more
  • Windows 7 64Bit

We get around 15fps at 1080p with…

We get 60fps at 1080p with…

  • Nvidia GTX 670M
  • i7-3610QM @2.3ghz
  • 8GB of Ram
  • Windows 7 64Bit

We have done limited compatibility testing on the game because we do not have many machines available to us.

Arcadecraft should run on a Windows 8 PC and we have tried it on an original Surface Pro however the performance isn’t great.

Mistakes:

Buying Orbitron: Revolution on PC or Xbox does NOT get you the Orbitron: Revolution cabinet in the PC version of Arcadecraft. We will do another mechanic to allow access to the cabinet where you do not have to buy Orbitron:Revolution.

Incomplete Art:

You will notice many characters show up in white or grey. That is because the art for these characters is not complete. We just received a new drop of characters from our character artist so they will be added to a new build shortly. We apologize for the incomplete art but wanted to get the game into your hands sooner.

Game Limitation:

We have capped this initial build of Arcadecraft off at the end of 1984, so 5 years of in game simulation. This gives this build of the game approximately 4-5 hours of gameplay. We have done this so as people play through this Beta they will be playing through a slightly smaller timeline in the game and if they are encountering issues they will be focused within this area of the timeline. We apologize for what seems like an arbitrary cut off but we think it is the best way to judge stability. This said, we have not encountered any bugs within the game on our end but our test sample is small.

Access to the full timeline will come in another build. Probably within the next 10 days as feedback on the game comes back from players.

Giving Feedback:

If you have found a bug, hit a crash, have a technical suggestion, controller issue, or otherwise, you may contact us at FirebaseIndustries@hotmail.com

Please try to describe the steps that led to the issue. We always read our email and while we may not respond to all messages, any bug will be logged and we will try to fix the issue. If we end up not being able to remedy your problem you can request a refund through Humble.

Thank you very much for your support!

Arcadecraft for PC

It has been one year since Arcadecraft was released on Xbox 360. Since release it has sold around 65,000 copies on Xbox Live Indie Games! We are very happy with the success the game has seen so far and want to thank all the fans who have enjoyed and supported the game over the last year.

Now we want to announce that the worst kept secret in indie gaming is true. Arcadecraft is coming to Windows 7 PC and coming soon! In fact it is almost done. All that we are really waiting for is the remainder of the character models to come in. The rest of the game is as playable as the Xbox 360 version.

PC Features:

  • Mouse Control Support
  • Keyboard Control Support
  • Xbox 360 Gamepad Support
  • 16:9 Resolutions from 1280×720 to 1920×1080
  • Higher resolution textures and UI art.
  • New Character Models with Redone Animations
  • Selectable Characters
  • All of the Xbox 360 content updates released so far are included
  • More than 100 arcade machines to place
  • Sim from 1980 to 1987

Why Was This an Uncertain Release for so Long?

The biggest issue was that the Avatars from the Xbox 360 version needed to come out and be replaced with all new characters. These characters needed a new rig and with a new rig comes redone animations. In addition to that we needed to support mouse control, and UI scaling for variable resolutions. That is a substantial amount of work, cost, and time. However, the sales of the Xbox 360 version hit a point where we thought that it was justified. Well, that and the emails we kept getting.

Didn’t you pull it from Greenlight?

Yes we did. We were too busy working on another game to go back and support a port. We are still just two people and doing one thing means we cannot do another. The Greenlight numbers we were seeing at the time were a little weak so we were not too confident it would have been worth the cost to port it. On top of this, Valve actually suggests that you can pull down a Greenlight page and create a new one when there is substantial change to your plans.

Is there a New Greenlight Page?

Yes!

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=222920987

If it does get to Steam will you give buyers Steam Keys?

If there is a straightforward way of doing that, sure!

Why only 16:9 resolutions?

Mostly because of the UI art and font positioning was done to support that mode and that scaling. We had to write our own in house tool for this game to support various PC resolutions combined with mouse support. As the game is pretty heavy with UI elements we thought it was the best trade-off we could manage for the time being. The UI art was originally made for 1080p so it doesn’t blur or scale when displayed at 1920×1080. If there are enough requests we can look at supporting more options in the future.

Will you add content updates to Arcadecraft PC?

Like the Xbox version before it, it is completely dependent on how well this version does. We have the second arcade location that was meant to go into the Xbox 360 version but couldn’t make it in if for technical reasons. We would like to add that to the game provided the audience is there.

Is Arcadecraft Moddable?

We honestly don’t know. We didn’t write tools to support modding but many great mods have worked around a lack of tools. Modders can probably figure out what they can and cannot change.

Is Arcadecraft DRM Free?

Yes it is.

What is Left to Do?

Besides the characters getting completed there are some minor bugs, and the animations need to lined up to machines properly. Then we will redo the character dialogue portraits and complete the Character Select screen. Other than that a bit more testing for overall stability.

Where Can I Buy it When it is Done?

Right now you can pre-order it from the Humble Store from the graphic below! If there is immediate demand and if you don’t mind some grey placeholder / doppelganger characters and possible bugs or compatibility issues we can put out an early access Beta of the game in a short time. That way it is in your hands sooner. The complete game with all the characters represented may be as soon as three weeks from now barring any technical delay.

It is now available to buy through the Humble Widget below!
