I have been working on and building games for years. Now I would like to give them away to kids and organizations for kids. We would like to donate them to any organization that helps and serves kids.
Kids need to be kids and kids need to play. Injuries, sickness, disabilities, loss of a loved one or other personal events sometimes get in the way and our kids are faced with struggles and challenges that would challenge an adult. I want to help kids be kids even when life throws them a curve ball.
I have been working with electronics and arcade games for over a decade and it has been a great hobby that I have turned into a small business. Growing up in the 80s and 90s I spent more than my fair share of time in arcades playing classic games like Donkey Kong, PacMan, Galaga, Pinball, and many many others.
Why games? Kids need games and kids need to play. Games have been proven to increase motor skills, hand-eye coordination, reflexes, muscle memory and most importantly they offer an escape and a way to temporarily forget pain and stress. Probably the biggest benefit is they are fun and kids need fun.
We plan on building full-size arcade games (both classic restored games and 60 in 1) that have been adapted so they are wheelchair height, portable games that can be played in bed or on a hospital table, pinball machines adapted for any need, and full-size games as well. These are non-violent titles that will allow an escape for kids. 60 in 1 games have all the best classic arcade games all in one game. These games are new and built specifically for the requesting child. We would like to donate small machines that could be given to kids in children's hospitals that would look just like the larger machines and play just like them but fit on a table. All of these games will be made in-house and look and feel just like the real thing. All of our games either have the original parts that have been restored or are made from all new materials depending on the need and location. The picture above is one of the multicades we built. Additional pictures are below.
