Gaming3 Years ago I came across a post looking for local indie devs who wanted their game in an arcade cabinet, I accepted, and now my game is available as an arcade machine as well as on Steam! AMA!

My name is Trey and I've loved playing games since I was merely 3 years old. Fast forward to more recently: I've been learning game development for a while, making prototypes and demos here and there. One day, I was checking out my local city's subreddit, /r/Shreveport, and came across someone looking for local game developers who were interested in having their game in an arcade machine. I had a few arcade-like prototypes available so I pitched the one I though would best fit.
3 years later and now not only do I have my first game, When It Hits the Fan, released on Steam, but it's also available in arcade machine form!

The arcade version of the game is completely coin-operated and runs the same version of the game you can find on Steam. The only difference is you can have as many continues as you have quarters/tokens ;).

Without a doubt, the Metal Slug series. After that I'd have to go with the D&D beat-em-ups and the Gauntlet games.
