One last thing: a short horror-themed video! It’s just over a minute, either brand-new and updated clips!


Elsewhere…

Arcade Quartermaster updated with new shrines for Sinistar and Missile Command! A gigantic howling demon-faced death star flying at you is considered horror in my opinion.

The biggest game site surprise of the year: Dire has resurrected the West Mansion Splatterhouse site! One of the earliest fan sites to haunt the web, the site is so legendary that even Namco acknowledged it! Check out the link to see Dire’s message about what he’s been up to and the future of the site.

Tune in tomorrow for day two of the 2020 DangerTerrorHorrorThon!

In 2006, a small town arcade was forced to close due to machinations of opportunistic politicians and preachers. The arcade’s owner was run out of town and the cabinets, mostly horror games, were ordered to be destroyed in a public ceremony. One of the former employees, Amelia, refused to let this happen. Rallying a crew of fellow misfits, she liberated the coin-op machines, evaded the local police through multiple states until reaching the one place outside the reach of the law: infamous Alexandria Mall.

The legend of the Alexandria Mall is too long to repeat here, but ask any witness of the midnight skirmish that caused the building to be burned to the ground only to reappear the next morning will tell you how that was only the beginning of the weirdness. Amelia used the doomed machines to start “The Arcade of the Damned,” and began to hunt down additional coin-op games with far more sinister histories.

Custom Sprites
Illmosis/ScrollBoss: Amelia
Castlevania: Elizabeth Bartley (Bloodlines)
Night Slashers: Vampire Boss
Horror: a new Freddy sprite in the same style as the 2018 Horror print, Nancy Thompson (Elm Street 1 style), Sam (Trick ‘R Treat), the Bishop of Battle (Nightmares). Improved sprites of Michael Myers (Halloween 2 lobby card and sheet disguise sprites) and Mike (Phantasm)

Mini-logos: Trick ‘R Treat and the Bishop of Battle added to movies gallery.
