Want to add some arcade flavor to your next party or get together? We think the best way to do it is by renting one of our classic arcade games by the month, but for those of you who want to take it a step further, you can play ambient sounds from the ghosts of arcade’s past at your next event.
The Arcade Ambience Project is an attempt to captures the dings, zaps and ayyyyyyyukkkens from bustling arcades. On the project’s web page, you can stream or download an audio recording of various arcades in action. What’s neat about the project is that they have multiple audio feeds depending on the era that you’re trying to replicate. Click on the 90’s link and you can hear players dueling it out on Mortal Kombat, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Simpsons. Click on the link from 1983 and all of a sudden you’re transported to an arcade that plays sounds from Space Invaders, Pacman and Galaga.
While white noise from an arcade may not be as relaxing as listening to a recording of the rain or the beach, it’s still a neat way to add a little bit of atmosphere to a party. Whether you own an actually arcade and want to make it sound busy or you just have a couple of a games and want to add more sounds, the site is a great resource for arcade white noise.
