Form, meet function.
If the arcade machine was first designed today, what would it look like?
We think it would be minimal & elegant to fit anywhere. Tucked out of the way when you need the space, but still photogenic enough for all those selfie moments.
It would be simple, easy-to-use, and easy to maintain, with plenty of game options for every gamer type. So intuitive that anyone could start their game & find themselves high-fiving in 10 seconds flat.
It would look like a Polycade.
High grade steel
Super slim profile.
Powder coated finish.
We're Control freaks.
Inputs chosen with all games & players in mind, because accuracy isn’t just for the pros.
We sourced the absolute best Sanwa joysticks and customized our controls for maximum agility of movement, accuracy, smoothness, and comfort.
No dead zones and no hard springs means no inaccuracies in neutral positions
We've added a custom octagonal restrictor gate for a perfectly spaced engage zone.
Compact design and a smooth pivot. Free & agile movement with lminor deflection.
The perfect height and size for extreme comfort. Your hands will thank you.
With a slightly convex shape and a smooth input, you have precise control and a uniform response no matter where you tap.
We use the 2.25" diameter trackball size that was made for classic arcade machines. It's also made of a durable polycarbonate, so you can rest assured that it'll last a lifetime.
