Arcades Argentinos: The DIY Arcade Scene of Argentina

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In 2012, a series of underground nomad arcade machines started to emerge from the guts of Argentina in search of players around the country and beyond.

Experimental video games, pinballs and even a bizarre avant-garde foosball table are part of this movement that takes place not only at traditional arcade bars and alleys, but also at parties, conventions, concerts, galleries and outside, in the streets, for free.

Their makers are small creative bands with the most diverse backgrounds: from film to science, from sculpture to engineering, from chip music to toy making.

And their players are... everyone: from nostalgic boomers to clueless school kids, from casual enthusiasts to hardcore fans, from e-sports competitors to tabletop game geeks.

Welcome to the Argentinian arcade scene!
