Photos from the Room 31 Arcade


Here in Room 31 we like to have fun and what better than designing and playing your own arcade!

Inspired by this short film... http://cainesarcade.com/

We created our own, by brainstorming, designing, and then building. We also prepared 'net drawings' of our creations so that anyone could come and create our work.

Here are some pics...

  1. I think that the people who run this event (in Pittsburgh, unfortunately) would love the idea of our arcades. One link is to the event's website, and the other is to a page with some more info on the page.

  2. I have posted our arcades on google+, where people all over the world can look at our arcades. I haven't gotten any responses yet. But the hardest thing in making my arcade was cutting thick cardboard. :)

  6. I did the same as Jack and Jakub and I haven't got a reply either. The hardest thing I found was trying to put it together without the pieces breaking and making a mess
