I fail to see how anything they do involves two bits. That would imply a very simple palette with 4 colors (or greyscales). Their web page seems to be in full color.
I think it refers to a quarter or 25¢.
Sounds like a similar concept to DisneyQuest:
Their workshop has some Pretty Cool Things(TM)!
I'd love to visit an old school storefront arcade like you see in 1940's noir movies. Are there any still in existence, anywhere??
"a high-tech micro-amusement park to downtown"
With things like this, in any downtown but more so for LA, I wonder if the length of the lines will be made up for with the intensity of the micro-amusements.
This sounds like an arcade to me. What am I missing?
Storefront arcades, some, yeah. 1940s-style, I dunno.
I'm thinking something like this. All mechanical.
...And now the tedious pedantry: All analog. Plenty of electrical bits, they're just not digital.
But I get what you mean. I'm old enough to have enjoyed arcades before digital devices. Super fun, but lots of broken, out of alignment bits.
