Projekt Produkt is now in the market for it's next arcade game to manufacture, publish, and distribute. If you are a game programmer or game designer and you have a game that would be right at home in a coin-op arcade cabinet you should contact us. You must be able to demonstrate you own the copyright or otherwise have complete ownership control of the game, it's source code, as well as any and all images, music and sound effects within plus you must have at least the use rights to all game mechanics used. Furthermore you must be able to edit the source code to play nice within a Projekt Produkt arcade cabinet to necessary Projekt Produkt hardware specifications. Almost any game could be considered. With few caveats but if it runs on PC hardware (Intel or AMD) the game must run in linux. Otherwise any hardware from C=64 to even arduino and any other crazy hardware you might program for could be considered. Anyone interested should contact me, Kevin Anderson at email@example.com or leave a voicemail at 520-406-0224.
A shout out to Vector Gaming Forums over at http://vectorgaming.proboards.com/thread/1023/gravitrex
for posting about GravitreX and Projekt Produkt. Thanks!!!
If you love vector games I invite you to check that forum out.
I will be debuting FANCADES at Zapcon 2016. This is a custom service offered to put your favorite beloved game into an arcade cabinet and give it arcade functionality. For all custom work contact Kevin Anderson of Projekt Produkt at firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay tuned for example pictures posted here after Zapcon http://www.zapcon.com/

Olive is never far away from the projekts I work on. My wife Elizabeth Anderson requested a cocktail cabinet. I turned it into somewhat of a challenge to build only with what I had extra on hand. Over the Halloween weekend 2015 this got done. Completely new cab no classic donor cab had to be sacrificed. It does need some 3" speaker covers still but other than that it looks great and is fully functional.
I will go ahead and complete the build in the near future with things I didn not have on hand like missing speaker covers, glass clips, and I am going to design and build a unique and I think very cool 'remote control' (it is way different than you are probably imagining) that will not detract from the look of her cabinet.
This has given me an idea to sponsor a build compo. Something like what can you build from scratch with only what you have on hand and how quick can you do it? A week, a weekend?
Projekt Produkt underwent a change in focus recently. I am still offering custom arcade quality controllers to your specs the same as the past 15 years. What IS changing; I am going to publish a lot of my information and program code as open source on a donation basis. This will include microcontroller programs and information, building plans, and some of my other trade secrets. In the near future, as I get the information presentable, look for information on Joysticks, spinners (rotary controllers), trackballs, relays, haptic feedback, led control, optical controllers, etc.
I hope to grow the participation in M.A.M.E.'s more advanced features such as HLSL, GLSL, dual monitor support, on screen bezel support, etc. Now that M.A.M.E. has gone open source I think we can expect a lot of positive changes and growth surrounding this popular emulation platform.
Since a lot of Emulation information is disappearing from the internet I also hope to act as a repository of information both old and new.
To close out this post I am introducing a new category of use to the custom arcade cabinet hobby. What it is: taking a PC game and "hacking" it to look and behave like an arcade game. Through the use of software and external hardware I will show how to display "coin-in" on any PC game along with "push player 1 or 2", how to create attract modes, etc. Everything you would expect an arcade game to feature. I hope to grow a community around this idea.
Thank you for your participation in Projekt Produkt's Reboot.
