Make Change with Arcadecraft

firebase industriesFirebase Industries Ltd. is proud to announce that their sophomore game, Arcadecraft, is now available on the Xbox Live Indie Games Marketplace for the price of 240 MS Points.  Arcadecraft puts the player in the role of a 1980 video game arcade entrepreneur, when video games were seen as nothing more than a passing fad to be capitalized on.
