I’m a sucker for anything 80’s. It’s my absolute favorite decade and if you put a movie or a video game in that time period, I’m going to check it out. Arcade Spirits looks to be a game to scratch my 1980’s itch by putting you into your very own visual novel. Check out the information below and get ready to be swept away in the nostalgia.


PQube and Fiction Factory Games are happy to announce that Arcade Spirits, an alternate future romantic comedy visual novel is coming to Windows PC, Mac and Linux in Early 2019. A demo is available on Steam right now!

Set in 20XX, Arcade Spirits follows an alternative timeline where the 1983 video game crash never occurred – after a turbulent work history you are granted employment at the Funplex, a popular arcade, home to a host of unique personalities and customers. Where will this new found employment take you? Who will you meet along the way? Will you find the romance you’re seeking?

  • Design your own character from the ground up – pronoun, hair style, skin tone, hair color, eye color and more are completely customisable and are reflected throughout the game in both cutscenes and artwork!

  • Work hard and build any relationship you desire with a total of seven romanceable characters! With roleplaying-based choices you will be able to grow your personality and relationships in any way you desire from friendship, platonic or something more intimate.

  • The Identity Identifier System, or IRIS, can track your relationship statuses with all characters throughout Arcade Spirits as well as your personality traits, from Quirky, Steady, and Kindly, to Gutsy and Basically.

  • Everything you choose in Arcade Spirits, from your relationships, to your personality, your crisis management moments, and myriad other decisions will have an effect on the future of your Arcade!

“Arcade Spirits combines our love for 80s workplace sitcoms, arcade culture, and the unique storytelling medium of the visual novel into one great package.” says Stefan Gagne, Project Director at Fiction Factory Games. “We’re looking forward to our players exploring our retro-flavored world and getting to know the characters we’ve worked so hard to bring to life!”
