Video For Arcade Paradise – Tips to Help You Build the Ultimate Games Arcade!

Summary

  • Arcade Paradise launches on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One today
  • Relive 90’s gaming nostalgia on your journey from rags to arcade riches!
  • Discover tips from the devs to help you get started in the game

Hi everyone, I’m Andreas Firnigl, CEO and founder of Nosebleed Interactive.

It seems like an age ago that we announced Arcade Paradise, and I’m very excited that launch day is now finally here! What a ride it has been. To help you get into the game the team have put together a short list of tips and tricks to help you build the ultimate games arcade; but first, a little background information for anyone that is new to the game.

Arcade Paradise is a 90’s themed arcade management simulator with over 35 fully playable arcade games to unlock. You play as Ashley, tasked by your father, played by Doug Cockle (Geralt from The Witcher series) to manage the day-to-day running the family’s laundromat business. Sounds a bit dull, right? … But hold on, wait. Things start to get really interesting when you discover a bunch of dusty old arcade machines lying in the back room of the laundromat, which have much more potential than the dreary laundromat business.

So, about those tips and tricks.

Be Your Own Boss

You’ve been handed the keys to the King Wash laundromat and it’s your final chance to impress before your father sends you to the local meat-packing plant to work. Sound grim?! So let’s make sure that doesn’t happen.

It’s up to you how you plan on making money, you’re calling the shots here. You’ll notice that each day will have its own sort of routine. It’s up to you how you tackle the chores. Start the day by cleaning the place up by throwing out all the trash and finding the rather ‘gummy’ special packages. You’ll make decent cash daily doing that.

Whilst that’s going on, why not throw on a few washes? That way you know you’ll be making additional money if you keep to a good schedule. Once all the chores are done, play to your hearts content… And don’t forget to fix the toilet.

Smash Your Goals

You are here to play arcade games and smash high-scores! On top of that, you’ve got a plethora of goals to tick off, too.

Honouring the 90s vibes, each delivery and new game you acquire should feel like the times you used to excitedly read the game manual from cover to cover before finally playing that game you’ve been waiting for.

In Arcade Paradise the ‘goal’ system should hopefully give you that same buzz with each cabinet delivery.

Once delivered, open up your PDA, from there you’ll be able to dial into the specifics about all the games you own, and see each cabinet’s goal list.

Completing goals or even just spending time playing a machine will vastly improve its popularity and income from it, meaning more profit! It’s the best way of bringing in those bucks. More profit means more games! Tasty.

Get Your Upgrades

So you’ve been slaving away day and night running this place, admittedly many of those hours were spent playing games out the back (we won’t tell your father).

You also have a daily list of “to-dos”. Each completed activity will net you some £ (that’s right, pounds sterling!)

Fed up of that analogue safe? Winding that annoying dial back and forth? Why not purchase a digital one? Want some kick-ass trainers so you can run about the place? Get some of your favourite sneakers. And if you save up enough, you’ll even be able to buy your own car so you don’t have to travel home on the bus. Nice!

Just log into “PoundBuy” on your desktop PC to spend all that £ sterling. They have all the things you could want to improve your day-to-day workflow and get rid of some of the small gripes you may have. The upgrade system is going to make your life so much easier.

One final pro tip… ’on’t want the stress of making sure you S-Rank every’ne’s linens? We got you. We know people love cheat modes, and th’re’s one cheat mode to rule them all… Up, up…hmm… how did it go again?

We hope these tips help you on your journey from rags to arcade riches, and we can’t wait to hear how you get on!

Stay one step ahead of your father, manage and invest profits, and build your very own Arcade Paradise!

Rags to riches… literally!
Take the laundromat business made up of dull chores from washing clothes to throwing out the trash, and turn it into a booming arcade with the coolest games in town raking in all the money!

Insert Coin
Over 35 arcade games, each fully realized with its own gameplay, stories, missions and high scores to set! Inspired by 3 decades of gaming, from early vector games right up to the 32-bit era.

Here comes a new challenger
Insert a second coin and play against a friend in a number of co-operative & competitive arcade games up to 4 players locally.

Set the high scores

Soundtrack worthy of the cassette collection
From the individual games to choosing what song to put on the jukebox inspired by some of the great records of the early 90s, the soundtrack captures the heart of a bygone era.

The greatest gaming era ever
Hello 90’s. If you could smell this game, it would smell like memories. Everything from the look and feel of the arcades, to using the latest PC connected to the mind-blowing dial-up connection, all has been recreated with pure love.

Gerald in the Riviera
Doug Cockle (famous for his voice acting in Victor Vran and The Witcher series) plays the role of Ashley’s berating father. Being too busy in the Riviera to see King Wash for himself, you will receive many phone calls from Gerald sharing his wise words of advice and constant reminders to fix the toilet.

Let’s Sing ABBA: When Karaoke Meets Disco

Let's Sing ABBA: When Karaoke Meets Disco


Players have been asking us for years to include more ABBA in Let’s Sing. We listened and made a special edition that will satisfy all your wishes — but we didn’t stop at the songs.


When you think about pop music, there are a lot of artists that come to mind. Some are one-hit-wonders, others have one or two successful albums. And then there are the artists and bands that shaped the genre into what it is today with their songs being seared into collective consciousness. One of those bands is, without a doubt, ABBA.

So, if you think about, it really only made sense for us to honor one of the most successful and influential pop bands of all time with their own special entry into the Let’s Sing series. Everyone knows at least some of their songs, probably even by heart without even realizing it. And we have also been asked for years to include more ABBA into our games. So by popular demand, here it is: Let’s Sing ABBA!

Picking the songs for this edition was easy and hard at the same time, simply because there are just so many hits to choose from! A few were of course absolute no-brainers. From the first moment it was completely unthinkable not to include the likes of “Mamma Mia,” “Dancing Queen,” “Waterloo,” or “Super Trouper” in the playlist. From there on out, it was more of a question of “What don’t we include?”

A testament to that is the fact that we broke our own rules, at least a little bit: Usually, the international version of a Let’s Sing game includes 30 songs. However, Let’s Sing ABBA includes 31 — because we wanted to add a song from their newest album Voyage, which they released in 2021. So our karaoke players get 30 classic hits that take you right back to the era of platform shoes, flared pants and disco balls and one new hit, “I Still Have Faith In You.”

But we knew that we couldn’t stop there. To let people experience Let’s Sing the ABBA way with more than just the songs, we overhauled the interface and also the avatars to look a little bit more like the band members. Play long enough and you will unlock iconic outfits that are sure to give your next performance an additional boost of confidence.

Other than that, Let’s Sing ABBA comes with single and multiplayer modes, leaving no excuses for people not to join in. I you want to get a head start and practice on your own? We’ve got you covered. Want to get into a singing competition for the ages with some friends? Done. You’re looking for a special challenge? Our mixtape mode is definitely for you — no two playlists in this dynamically generated mode are the same.

We got a glimpse of the fact that we had made the right choice with Let’s Sing ABBA during gamescom: Even more people than we could have possibly hoped for stopped by to step into our karaoke box and belt out some disco tunes, also cramming more people in there than we thought possible. Needless to say, all of them were leaving with big smiles on their faces once they were done. Mission accomplished on our end. Thank you for the music so far and we can’t wait to see some great performances on social media!
