Try Amusement Tower – Artwork

December 17, 2018

After more than a full year hiatus I’m finally getting my shit together and posting something here. Not that anyone is expecting a stream of posts I guess, but…

Last year one of my friends bought a container from Japan full of Astro City and Blast City cabinets, and it turned out to be cabinets from the closing retro floor of the Try Amusement Tower arcade in Akihabara, Tokyo. Here’s a few pictures found on the interwebz from when Try pulled the plug on the final day:

When we unloaded the container, we saved some of the best looking instruction labels and some other artwork as well. Goal is to preserve it so that one of the best arcades in Tokyo does not fall into oblivion. I’m starting with the Instruction strip, which has been scanned in 300 DPI and saved as a PDF.

A few more bits and pieces will be uploaded in the near future.

Hi, and welcome to my blog. This is the third revision of the website, and after taking a detour on Tumblr we're back in the warm hands of a self hosted WordPress-website instead. This blog is my own personal space where I share shmup (or other) related stuff I find around the internet. I will also use this blog as my archive for gaming achievments, like 1 credit clears.
