As you know, the ACM office has a pretty sweet arcade cabinet. It uses a salvaged housing, new joysticks/buttons, and one of our computers running a MAME emulator. What you may not know is that SIG-GDev is in the process of restoring it to be something we can put in a public area of campus. We have a new controller board, we’ve ordered a coin acceptor, and we’re meeting next week to do some carpentry. Some of our members have begun developing our own games to play on it. One thing we don’t have yet, however, is sweet artwork to decorate the sides and front of the cabinet.
Luckily, ACM is full of very talented members who would love to showcase their skills to the rest of the chapter and to the entire student body of NDSU~
So, we’re having a contest! The basic idea is to design the sides and front of the arcade cabinet. The winning submission will be used as we finish the restoration. Submissions are due Monday, March 28. You must be a member to participate.
