Developed for Big Boss Brewing, the Beercade machine is a fighting game that takes cups instead of quarters and dispenses beer to the winning player
Players set their cups down to start the game and then choose from five characters, each based on a signature brew
The Beercade works like any other arcade fighting game, except the standard coin slots have been replaced with a pair of spigots, drip trays, and motion sensors
The beer-dispensing arcade machine was built entirely in-house, from the Flash-based fighting game – The Last Barfighter – to the art on the cabinet
Each player fights with regular punches and kicks, along with some special moves – the first person to win two matches gets a sample of beer automatically dispensed from their tap
Video games and beer have been a time-honored combination ever since the first bar installed a Pong machine. We've seen both standard and racing-style arcade machines with kegs built right into them, but never one that actually rewards gaming skill with a tasty beverage. That's where the Beercade comes in. Developed for Big Boss Brewing, the Beercade machine is a fighting game that takes cups instead of quarters and dispenses free beer to the winning player.
