Arcade Propaganda posters and 8-bit chiptune music for the arcade or gameroom

Shaggy April 13, 2010 1

The key to making a good gameroom or arcade is partially about the games you have and partially about the ambient of the room itself.Here are a couple of things that can help you make that room a bit more awesome.

First up are these arcade propaganda-style posters, which feature Joust, Donkey Kong, Frogger and Dig Dug stylized like many political or wartime propaganda posters of old, as a way to ‘inspire’ young players to action. Pretty amusing and would look great sitting above the respective games that they represent. [Via GameSetWatch]

Next is for the audible ambient, an album of 8-bit “Chiptune”-style music by video game designer Rob Howard. Chiptune refers to the music being created with mostly emulated sounds from the NES. The music is original content inspired by a number of 8-bit video games in the past, which include a few arcade games in there too. I put a sample below and you can find out more about the album here. (Thanks to Rob himself for contacting us about this)

    Thanks for the support! And those posters are pretty sweet too 🙂

    My wife provided one pretty cool perk as a result of our marriage (among many other great things, of course!), that being her vintage Ms. Pacman cocktail table 🙂
