October 22, 2021

Now the workplace can get boring and this can lead to a stale working environment which may cause a poorer work ethic. We have decided that in order to create a better, healthier workplace that you need a custom arcade machine. Read on below for 5 reasons as to why you need a retro arcade machine in your workplace!

Stress Release

Work can get quite stressful especially if you have so much to do in such little time, this is why a break from it all is great for the mental health of your employees. Having a 30-1hr break will refresh the mind and relieve any built up stress through the day, it acts as an escape for employees and especially those who love older games as they will really enjoy a retro arcade machine in the workplace.

Showing them that you care by purchasing a custom arcade machine for the workplace will also encourage your employees further to work harder for your company.

Learn Skills

Countless studies have also shown that arcade games can build up skills over time, these include; reaction time, reflexes, improved multitasking  and many more mental based skills.

Team Bonding

This is a great reason for purchasing a bespoke arcade machine for the office. Building a well-organsied team that gets on with each other can be extremely hard and most businesses just have a group of individuals who put up with each other as they are getting paid. This will not be the case in your workplace! Allowing your team to bond over retro arcade games and compete against each other to get a higher score will bring them closer together and form a strong working unit for your business.


Alluding to previous reasons we’ve already mentioned, creativity can be encouraged through allowing your employees to play on a custom arcade machine in their breaks. They may see a certain colour scheme or pattern in a game that they may try to apply to your business. Playing on a retro arcade machine may infuse a spark amongst some of your employees and they may come up with great ideas that will improve your business.
