Flynn's Arcade is a video game arcade owned and operated by Kevin Flynn. It is a multi-story establishment, with numerous assembled arcade games on the ground floor and office space on the floor above. The upper rooms have been furnished to serve as both a work space and accommodation, in which Flynn lived prior to taking control of ENCOM. This design features a subtle, simulated screen printed effect with slightly visible halftone dots along with some heavy vintage distressing to give it some true 80s cred.

In 1971, Nolan Bushnell and Ted Dabney founded an engineering firm, Syzygy Engineering, that designed and built Computer Space, the world's first commercially available arcade video game, for Nutting Associates. On June 27, 1972, the two incorporated Atari, Inc. and soon hired Al Alcorn as their first design engineer. Bushnell asked Alcorn to produce an arcade version of the Magnavox Odyssey's Tennis game, which would be named Pong. While Bushnell incorporated Atari in June 1972, Syzygy Company was never formally incorporated. Before Atari's incorporation, Bushnell considered various terms from the game go, eventually choosing atari, referencing a position in the game when a group of stones is imminently in danger of being taken by one's opponent. Atari was incorporated in the state of California on June 27, 1972. This version of the Atari logo mark is the inline logo with the embedded stylized 'A' icon with an authentic vintage treatment to give it plenty of retro street cred.

Space Invaders is an arcade video game created by Tomohiro Nishikado and released in 1978. It was originally manufactured and sold by Taito in Japan, and was later licensed for production in the United States by the Midway division of Bally. Space Invaders is one of the earliest shooting games and the aim is to defeat waves of aliens with a laser cannon to earn as many points as possible. In designing the game, Nishikado drew inspiration from popular media: Breakout, The War of the Worlds, and Star Wars. To complete it, he had to design custom hardware and development tools. The Space Invaders Pixel Text design includes an authentic vintage treatment to give it plenty of vintage street cred.

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, one of the biggest commercial failures in video gaming and often cited as one of the worst video games ever released. All of these factors have led to wide speculation that most of the 3.5 million unsold copies of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial were secretly buried in a landfill in Alamogordo, New Mexico then encased in concrete.
