Shape Arcade is a neon-infused love letter to the early arcade era with ease of use and accessibility in mind. Built inside a custom tabletop arcade cabinet that reacts to how you play! Using two dials, players match falling shapes in progressively more difficult levels. Can you match the most?
Shape Arcade was originally created by Matthew Deline in April 2018 as a graduate student physical computing/game design project at Goldsmiths, University of London. Revisions of the original cabinet and new versions for home and mobile are in active development at Matthew's new Melbourne-based studio, Campervan Games. They are both currently scheduled for release in 2020.
