Cloud retro gaming service Antstream Arcade is now available on the Epic Games Store.
As GamesIndustry.biz reports, the Antstream Arcade service features over 1,200 retro games from Atari, Bandai Namco, Taito, and more; with classic games such a Pac-Man, Space Invanders, and Mortal Kombat. All the games are available for free via cloud gaming. Along with unique challenges and leaderboards, the system also has tournament support.
The Antstream Gems are spent on “playing games, challenges and limited-time tournaments;” though it seems many games are free. These gems can be earned via in-game challenges, or bought. Until December 2nd, a pack of 1,090 Gems will be free via Epic Games.
GamesIndustry.biz notes this comes two days after Atari invested $500,000 USD into Antstream Arcade; and that figure could rise to $3.5 million USD in the future.
