Bits to Atoms: Starlords Arcade Cabinet, Part 1

This year’s California Extreme saw the debut of Starlords, a new arcade cabinet built over many months by our very own Bits to Atoms team! To embark on this journey, Jeremy and Sean enlisted the help of the software developers (and video game historians) at Other Ocean Interactive to code this game from scratch. Follow along this build from game design to cabinet fabrication–the most ambitious Bits to Atoms project yet!

  1. I love this, can’t wait to see the rest of it. The brainstorming session is so much fun, i hope the circle/hexagon idea works out.

  2. Fantastic idea, and really looking forward to following along. Will the game be available?

    It would be awesome to see if people could build their own Starlords cabinets.

  3. Yes, awesome video. Can’t wait to see the rest!

    I loved seeing the whiteboard discussion, just a bunch of people who know what they can do figure out what they should do. Inspiring to see people add to each others ideas and make light bulbs turn on without even meaning to.

  4. What are the chances Other Ocean’s St. John’s office will get a working, playable cabinet? The local Geek Bar would be a great test bed for it. The owner/operator was in the market for a cocktail arcade cabinet.

  5. Very cool. I can’t wait to see each members work and how they all came together. When is the next segment going to be posted? Next week?

  6. Wow. Really digging this new segment. Can’t wait for the next installment. Great insights into game design.

  7. This video just caused me to re-up my premium (which I had a couple years ago but let expire). TOTALLY WORTH IT. Can’t wait to keep watching.
