Remember arcades? They were like a bunch of pay as you go consoles in a big room. Lots of noise and people trying beat each other's scores. Well, Other Worlds is bringing them back with a VR twist via a series of events, starting in London on the June 3 and 4.
Here's a quick breakdown of what's on offer:
"Day sessions will be open to all ages and feature games with suitable content for younger users. Then by night the arcade will get pretty edgy with cocktails, incredible street food and some very special guest DJs. All set against a blaze of neon to create the ultimate futuristic hang out."
The arcade will feature:
- 8 of the very latest VR stations - HTC VIVE with large screen for friends to watch you in action
- 40 retro and up to the minute consoles - all played on a TV from that era
- Retro arcade machines
- Times: 12 noon to midnight (Saturday and Sunday)
- Gamers brunch served 12 - 4pm (waffles, ice creams, retro cereals, gourmet bacon sandwiches etc.) ‘Munchies’ cafe - 4pm - midnight (gourmet indulgence - fish finger sandwiches, super stacked burgers, cheesy fries etc.)
Tickets went on sale today for the London event which promises to be a regular thing, while other one offs are planned for Birmingham, Cardiff and Manchester in the future.
Tickets are in high demand which means you're probably already too late, which is why we have two pairs to give away for June's London event. You'll have to make your own way there as we're not covering transport, just entry and food/drink vouchers provided by the organisers to feed you.
