If you attended the Extended Play festival this weekend you probably saw (and hopefully played) the UK’s first Winnitron arcade cabinet: The Plymitron!
A small group of people - Rich Searle, Gaz Williams, Dan Stubbs and myself (Mike Cobb) - spent numerous evenings and weekends renovating an old yellow cab donated by PCAD into a sleek black and neon blue beauty. Sarah Welland and Chris Mayoh collaborated on the marquee, and it was all made possible by donations from the Plymouth Indie Game Community. Thanks everyone!
Of course, the real stars are the games! The Winnitron Indie Game Arcade Network is an awesome (and growing) collection of fantastic Indie games - all free to play on the Plymitron.
The Plymitron now resides in the Roland Levinsky Building on the Plymouth University Campus. It’s open to the public, so everyone can drop by and have a play.
Here are some photos of the launch (more on my Flickr page):
