For just $100, you can grab a year-long membership to this gaming haven - a place that's genuinely amazing.
Whether you're a casual observer or a hardcore enthusiast, there are games for everyone. Spending time here has expanded my knowledge of gaming history and the creative artistry behind the games I grew up with. With a full Rockband setup, the spread of classic Nintendo consoles (NES, SNES, N64, GCN, Wii... a huge draw for me), and an extensive game library, there's always something new to discover.
Indulge your nostalgia with classics or try your hand at the Cyber Troopers Virtual-On Oratorio Tangram Arcade machine. Join the fun with Smash Brothers Tournaments every other Tuesday and meet fellow indie game developers in co-working meetups. It's not just a gaming space; it's a laid-back celebration of the gaming world's magic and community spirit.
I can't wait to see how The MADE grows as we see digital entertainment gain more validity as the art and culture it already is!
