Workshop Re-Enabled & Wall Nodes Sharable!
Technical Improvements
  • Uses the newest version of the Steamworks API.
  • UNLIMITED workshop file size.
  • UNLIMITED workshop shares.
  • You don't need to subscribe to your own shares anymore.
  • You don't need to store an extra copy of workshop items anymore.
  • Backwards compatible with existing "legacy" workshop content.
  • As always, shortcuts to local files have their folder paths hidden.

Remember that Anarchy Arcade shares media items themselves, not your copy of them. That means that it's perfectly fine to share arcades that have shortcuts to games or movies on your PC. Other people using your arcade would need access to their own copies of the games or movies to launch the shortcuts, and everybody can watch the preview videos regardless.

Last year Anarchy Arcade participated in the Indie Games For Good charity pledge drive & marathon stream ( Hundreds of indie games participated, and in total the event raised over $19,000.00 US for the Child’s Play charity. Pledgers were allowed to choose a game that they were most interseted in seeing played during the stream, and in the end AArcade was the 6th most requested game!

Earlier this week Valve announced that they will be introducing SteamVR hardware and a refined Steam controller at the Game Developer's Conference in San Fransisco (March 4th - 6th, 2015). This is exciting news for Anarchy Arcade users because AArcade uses the same VR integration as Team Fortress 2 itself which is devloped in-house at Valve. For more information on SteamVR, check out their announcement:

January Updates (Part II)
Map Discovery Awards
AArcade supports over 50,000 maps. Often you will load up what you believe to be the most epic map ever used in AArcade. You also might believe that you are the first person in the world to ever use this awesome map as a 3d desktop. Well now, thanks to the Steam leaderboards & AArcade's all new map discovery system, you can confirm this belief!

If you are the first person ever to load up a map in AArcade, your Steam name & avatar are for ever bound to that map in AArcade as the map's discoverer! You will be listed on the TOP of the leaderboard for the map with a special note saying that YOU discovered the map first, as well as the number of players who discovered it after you.

The landrush is on! Try to leave your mark on your favorite maps by being the first person ever to load them up in AArcade! However, you might find that you aren't the only one who loves that map. :)

Steam Leaderboards
In addition to remembering who discovered the map, the new leaderboards also record how much time each player has spent in the map (in total), how many times they have re-visited the map, as well as how many shortcuts they spawned in their arcade there.

As players, the leaderboards give you a good idea of what other players think of the map. They also help you find friends that might be interested in doing some multiplayer in that obscure addon map that only you and 3 other people have discovered so far. :)

As map authors, it shows you how many people have loaded your map and how much time they spend on it. Two stats that I would have LOVED to have back when I was publishing Counter-Strike: Source maps to CAL.

Development Extended to End of February
AArcade was supposed to be ready to come out of Early Access at the end of January; however, I saw the opportunity to add some awesome unplanned features (such as the ones covered in this article) and must extend the Early Access period to the end of February as I polish up the new features and get them release-ready.

I'd like to thank everybody who took part in December's successful Kickstarter campaign which funded AArcade all the way through January and made all of these great new features possible. As the stretch goals promised, Black_Stormy was brought on board for the month of January and produced some great new cabinet models for us as well as created the first major Hub map which will be released in February's big update. His awesome map will be the "Kickstarter Arcade" map that appreciatively displays the 2 logos of the Kickstarter patrons who pledged over $100 and brings the conclusion of the Kickstarter promises. I hope that everybody is happy with the results.

PayPal Donations Are Back
If you missed the Kickstarter or would like to continue to support Anarchy Arcade's development, PayPal donations have opened back up for anybody who wishes to contribute. Note that the Kickstarter pledge rewards do not apply to PayPal donations. The Kickstarter is over.

If you are an Early Access user that wishes to donate, I suggest using the in-game Donation Rewards button instead as it will grant you a couple special in-game models for using it.

Until Next Time
Don't forget that you can personally ask me questions LIVE on my Twitch stream, every Wednesday from 4am - 10pm Pacific time at I'll be happy to demonstrate how to do things in AArcade, answer any technical questions you might have, or just play vs you in some games. Have fun in your 3D desktops and party on dudes!

Release date: Fourth Quarter 2014
Your PC & the internet in a MULTIPLAYER 3D world! Anarchy Arcade allows you to explore your computer from the inside as you walk around your files and the internet with your friends in a virtual 3D world.

Stand in your personalized 3D media arcade with your friends and watch movies together, listen to music, play your games, browse the web, and more!

Leave Anarchy Arcade open on your gaming PC to turn it into the ultimate entertainment machine. It provides you with a completely immersive environment that is entertaining from the moment you touch the keyboard (or joypad.)

@Enderhart: Every player's arcade save is given a score that denotes how much content is in their arcade. These scores are submitted to the leaderboard for the arcade's map. In the case of "Discovered by ____", the username filling in the blanks is just the first person who has built an arcade on the map. Your arcade isn't private; the only thing about your arcade that is sent to the server is the arcade's score!

@Sm Sith Lord
I have a question on your future
Since the kickstarter has failed
when the game is out and you get some profit, are you gonna keep updating anarchy arcade to a point that you would accomplish what you were wishing to do when the kickstarter succeeds?

Is there any way for Anarchy Arcade to have its own workshop?
