Hi there! I'm Stefan Gagne, author and project director at Fiction Factory Games. We're happy to release our visual novel, Arcade Spirits, now available for download on the Xbox One!
Arcade Spirits is a live action game in the year 20XX, which is another time when the 1983 automotive game never appeared. The medals have never been popular. He picks up the post and works at Funplex, a small company run by a beautiful old woman named Miss Francine, and he knows his co-workers and sports managers alike. You will solve problems, make friends, build your own arcade, and maybe even find romances there.
To celebrate the launch, here are seven facts Arcade Spirits that you need to know! Now maybe!
- Arcade Spirits you don't pause when you say "I love you."
Hey, you know what kind of romantic movies this slow burn that leads to a great time when love is acknowledged, then the music bounces and they kiss each other and the credits roll and everyone kicks out their empty popcorn containers and goes home?
Nope, I'm sorry, real life doesn't end there and neither does our story. Once you are in a relationship, you have your priorities. Argument! Arguments! To do! To do! Not to mention continuing your career and making sure you get your dreams through a time of conflict and chaos. Get ready for a wild ride.
- Your personality is your choice, and it changes the destiny.
Along the way, your personality will be measured along with four characteristics – Kindly, Quirky, Steady and Gutsy. The decisions you make and the people you are close to will determine what kind of person you are, and whether that plays out in the end. If you beat this game as a Kind of Kind, why not try a second chase as a Gutsy and superhero genre? See where it leads you.
- There are no wrong choices and (almost) no dead ends.
Have you ever played one of those games where you chose to "eat beans" instead of "exercise" and then got hit by a bus? Well, that's not us. We want you to feel free to express your feelings and make the decisions you want without having to live in the constant fear of those big red Game Over books that embarrass you. Don't be afraid to color up a few lines with your options!
- Making 8-Bit translated "Night in Bald Mountain" is harder than you think.
In particular, it's a comedy piece of music that comes out as two separate scenes in between Arcade Spirits and I had to download three pieces of some dodgy MIDI software just to rearrange this file to sound synth-y. And my first attempt had everything to do with the onion map, which was painful but it was definitely not the kind of problem I was planning. Man, the dev game is amazing. You wouldn't believe the other hooks you jump in to wait, where was I? Oh, that's right, seven facts, I'm sorry. Next!
- Seven couples are waiting Arcade Spirits.
"Wait a minute, there's only six people in the box," you can say. And you are right! There are six couples… and one hidden one, which you can find if you come across the right conditions. What are those conditions? Who knows? It's a mystery! You have to find out. Or, I don't know, use a search engine. I mean, that works too.
- Be anyone, love anyone, everything is fine.
In Arcade Spirits, you design your character and choose the one you want to love. Say your name, choose your pronoun, finish your hair, whatever floats your boat. Be whoever you want to be, love anyone you want to be. The game won't stop you. You can play like you, no matter who you are. It's a game for everyone and we're proud of that fact.
- Now out for Xbox One!
Seriously, now! Right now! You can install hardware fistfuls of hardware right into your Xbox One and win the video game! I mean, I think that's the way it works. I am not an economist. But the truth is … when you're ready to work in the arcade of your dreams, protect your business from the cutthroat competition and support your friends there, Arcade Spirits
