Arcade Spirits is a dating simulator and futuristic novel set in an alternate reality where arcade gaming never went out of style. Play your way through its neon-soaked levels as an employee at The Funplex whose conversations drive the story. You’ll meet a diverse and inclusive cast of characters. But unlike some other dating simulators, this 2019 game doesn’t “make you” pursue romance—allowing asexual gamers to enjoy a platonic connection exclusively if they want.
