Arcade

This is currently a project in progress, the guides will get updated over time.
Pre-word | Features | Warnings

This arcade project is a modern approach to the retro arcade cabinets, as I’m building the arcade system myself I’ll have full control over how many players or what ‘features’ it will have. Everyone with a basic woodwork skill, average PC skills and an admiration for arcade and retro gaming can build one themselves.
