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!
