ANXIETY ARCADE IS A LOVE LETTER TO VIDEO GAMES AND 1980s POP CULTURE

 

Developed by Closed Forum, Anxiety Arcade is a full-sized arcade machine that houses an artwork that explores anxiety and isolation. Anxiety Arcade creates a digital space that allows you the take a break from everything in your world.

STOP. BREATHE. PRESS A TO START.

What if there is a game you can’t win? How long would you play if you were told there is no end? Explore a virtual world where each room is a song in an album and every puzzle unlocks more mystery. Anxiety Arcade is bleak, funny and bizarre.

Closed Forum look at anxiety through a lens of those that experience it, using firsthand experience rather than expertise and have designed Anxiety Arcade to get people talking about mental health rather than trying to solve it.
