Arcade Dreams

by on Nov.16, 2008, under Uncategorized

I just had the most amazing dream…I dreamed I was spending some time at a place that had lots of old arcade games set up to play. Classic stuff like Pac-Man, Centipede, Ms. Pac-Man, of course…but there were also a lot of them that just came right from my imagination, and yet seemed in some way plausible. Arizona Sun, a game where you played a private detective being menaced by thugs, and its sequel Louisiana Bailey, starring his female counterpart. Metalevel, where each level was drawn (recycled, pastiched?) from a classic video game. And then there was the room with several rows of cocktail cabinets with instruction manuals that could be perused…stuff like Sasmiris, the emergent-story game from Chris Crawford. And Trojan, with its hilariously bad full-motion video of women in impractical armor. And Don-Cha, the sexually explicit caveman therapy game.

…And then I woke up and realized that none of these games actually exist. Sigh.

Being a game designer/developer, I write in second person a lot.

If I see one more anime, manga or game with a brother and sister who “aren’t related by blood”, I’m going to scream.

Does anyone else really dislike the taste of mace? It seems somehow rancid to me.

What is the one game available on both XBox Live Arcade and the Wii Virtual Console?
