As someone who has cabinets in a public arcade (albeit one that doesn't really earn all that much), very interested in hearing about international sales.

Just found out there's a new-ish arcade in my town that was a former pinball-only place. From the pics on google, they apparently have JP candy cabs so when I'm over this cold I'll stop by there and plug Exa to the owner, if they're not already aware. I really want to play A2BTR, and this could be my ticket to do so.

e: it's one of those places with a hefty cover charge but all the games are on freeplay. Not ideal for me because I'm picky about games and other reasons, but I'll at least give them a visit soon.

Not sure if I've heard of this place. Would you mind sharing exactly where it is?

I went on Friday afternoon. The game is fantastic. If you like SDOJ, you're going to love this. There were just .... other factors... of the loctest that I didn't like, and I'll go back on Monday to try again.

It's in central VA so a bit of a drive for you, the game list is probably not worth the travel.

e: welp since last week they've removed Gradius from the games list. Not sure I'm interested in going anymore.

Those location tests, along with final release, will come later worldwide after the location test period in Japan.

Only Exa Arcadia will know when it is time for other parts of the world, like USA, Europe, Latin America, Asia, etc.

How cool would it be if we got a new Ikeda or Yagawa game on Exa?

Shou please make this happen!! :P :mrgreen:

Ok, if you pull this off I'll open the wallet to rep St. Louis (I'm sure caldwert is already). :mrgreen:

Will need a new cab though, which is the obstacle.

Sneak some fine print into the contract that forces them to update their iOS games. :D

I hope there is one for Round 1 in San Jose Eastridge Shopping Center because that place is closest to home in the SF Bay Area.

Otherwise, go talk with various barcades in SF as they are excellent spots like Emporium SF and Oakland.

Today's the final day of location test for Aka & Blue Type-R at three locations in Japan, all established arcade chains including Taito and Namco. The amount of revenue obtained by those games should expectedly exceed many of the modern arcade games released so far thanks to no forced revenue share.

If any of you are actually in Japan and did have a playtest, feel free to share your thoughts on the latest build of Aka & Blue Type-R.

That sounds rather cryptic and/or mysterious. So did you end up going back?
I noticed they had a picture on their site showing the 4:3 aspectratio without borders. Must be quite a challenge to implement that properly!

I wonder if any of you actually tried to contact game developers behind any games you wish to see on Exa Arcadia?

I have actually have done that to a few games that I believe would be nice for the arcade platform. I am at GDC and there are plenty of booths to actually talk to the developers.

Yet there is no Exa Arcadia at GDC.

I can name a few games that are at GDC and informed them about EXA Arcadia as an easy to develop platform with emphasis on exclusive content and gave them the website link.

Developers with games I informed about Exa Arcadia at GDC (No Exa Arcadia machines yet):
(Game) - Developer - (Country)


Samurai Gunn 2 - Teknopants and Double Fine
Mutant Football League - Digital Dreams Entertainment
Spark 2 (working alpha title) - Knightmare Games (they built the game on the arcade cabinet as a prototype)
Neon Abyss - Veewo - China
Pacer - Blinx.tv
Neon Nemesis - Toasty Titan (ctrl.alt.GDC with unique 4 vs 1 dual screen arcade speedrun race game)
Relic Hunters Legends - Rogue Snail
HeadSnatchers - Iceberg Interactive
Zeke's Peak - 56K games (this developer is recreating various dual joystick tilt bar ball games produced by Taito America along with new twists, like Ice Cold Beer)
One step to Eden - Ristaccia (Fast paced grid battle like Megaman battle network)
Next Studio - China



Also before GDC, I contacted the creators of SkyScrappers and they informed me that they heard about it somewhat from the indie game community and asked me if I actually worked for Exa. I replied that I am a passionate fan and praised them for actually making a platform versus game that utilized both horizontal and vertical (Switch exclusive) orientations.


I would not be surprised if anyone else bothered to ask developers about publishing games to Exa Arcadia as wishful requests.

No, I never went back. I had to tie up work and get ready for a trip back to the USA. I was the only one there playing the game, and there were two guys there from some company (EXA? Tanoshimasu? Namco?) That stood directly behind me the entire time, literally a foot or two away with very serious faces focusing intently on what I was doing. I wanted to goof around with the game and find out what button combos did, the vertical and horizontal limits of the ship, etc, but felt like I had to "preform" for these guys. So I did my best, died on the first boss, and peaced out. No idea what their intentions were, or why they were there but they made me a bit uncomfortable. I went to Namco with 20 coins ready to play, and I only played once. The game was really good, but ... I dunno. I didn't like the vibe. Intended to go back, but I had to finish things up in Japan and had no time.

Looks like there will be more Aka & Blue type R in different locations in Japan:

https://twitter.com/exaarcadia/status/1 ... 6735197184

I felt surprised there would be more location tests of the game after that one is over.

Now from March 22 to April 1st.
