Publisher PQube, along with developer Fiction Factory Games have announced the release date for their visual novel, Arcade Spirits. This visual novel aims to mix retro styles, with humor and romance. It is set in a world where the video games crash of 1983 never happened. As a result, it is now 20xx, where you get to move on from a messy work history to start a brand new job at the popular arcade known as Funplex. Arcade Spirits is set to come to Steam on February 12th, 2019. If you can’t wait that long, you can already try out the demo. To celebrate the announcement of the release date, today’s press release also linked to a new trailer:


According to the press release, you can customize your characters in numerous ways. This includes skin tone, hair color, eyes color, pronoun and more. As you begin your new job at the Funplex arcade, your choices matter. From your personality and relationships to your crisis management and many other decisions, they will affect the future of the arcade. You can build your relationships with seven romanceable characters who are all fully voice acted. You can build all types of relationships, from friendship to something a little more. You’ll also get to enjoy the beats of the synthwave soundtrack during your time at the Funplex arcade.

You can find out more about Arcade Spirits at the official website, and on its Steam store page. Will you find the romance you’re looking for at the Funplex arcade?

He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
