Good question! We are working on approximately 40 unique holiday games spread across consoles and PCs and spanning a few decades of gaming.
In probably one of our less intelligent moves, we are creating a Home Alone themed section where you can experience the joy (or horror) of multiple versions of the home console game.
This is in addition to a new puzzle game section, the 75+ arcade cabinets, and another 30+ standard retro gaming setups.
Plus a few more fun surprises.
We hope to see you there!
