We LOVE the ARCADE is a directory website where business owners can submit their arcades and provide information about their establishments. Website users can like, favorite, review, or post photos to their favorite places. This project is one of our own websites.
Website Feature Summary:
The goal of this website was to create exposure for a dying industry – locally owned and operated arcades, pinball halls, and gaming centers.
The website is aimed at allowing business owners a way to showcase their location, similar to a profile listing on Yelp or Facebook. The target audience is people who are looking to get out into the local community and play games in a physical space. The home console industry was a major strike to the arcade industry, and with advent of online gaming, home consoles and PC gaming have created a World where people do not need to meet somewhere to play games.
The website serves as a platform for gamers to locate nearby arcades. In addition to this, people are also able to sign up on the website using their email, Google, or Facebook profile. By signing up, you can save favorites, submit pictures, write reviews, or add missing locations to the map. This website is entirely free for both businesses and people who want to contribute content.
