Have you ever wanted to visit one of those old school 80’s arcades and play video games all day? Well, fear not because thanks to new startup Timeless Arcade that notion could soon become a reality for anyone in the Northamptonshire region.
Timeless Arcade is the brainchild of mastermind Craig Govier, a lover of all video games especially classics from the ’80s. Craig intends on converting a disused unit, within the Ridings Arcade in Northampton town centre, into a modern-day arcade for the masses. Pulling together a collection of new and old gaming delights.
Currently, the team have an application pending with the local council, if approved we could have over 40 different machines at our fingertips and ready to play. The business model intends for each entrant to simply pay a flat fee which in turn allows unlimited play. This is a perfect concept, long gone is the need for endless tokens.
With over forty cabinets, retro consoles and a splattering of modern machines planned, we cannot wait to try out Timeless Arcade. We just hope and pray that the council make the right decision by granting permission to Craig in pursuing this concept.
The proposed launch date is set for April 2020, check back soon for more updates and hopefully our review of this exciting new gaming venue. In the meantime why not check out our 50 Arcade Games You Need To Play Before You Die ultimate list.
