Fantastic Arcade returns as a yearly celebration of indie and cult video games. For our first show under the Museum of Human Achievement, Fantastic Arcade will be hosting a retrospective as part of the East Austin Studio Tour, looking back on the last 10 years of commissioned and showcased games. To do this we’ve asked 22 artists to create a new environment, visual compliment or conceptual home to each custom arcade cabinet.
