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.
