R-CADE, A PLACE FOR PEOPLE
In January 2018 we opened our doors to the public with just a handful of games and a truck load of ideas. We offered everyone the chance to experience retro video games the way they were intended; on original hardware with proper old school televisions. At the same time we wanted to bring back local multiplayer video game experiences to the masses too as the onslaught of online gaming had taken over the younger generation.
Our aim from day one was to offer a fun, safe and inclusive space for fans of all things retro to hang out, make new friends and connect with each other.
In Jan 2020 R-CADE celebrated it's 2nd birthday. After over 300 events both in our venue and around the country we felt like we had perfected the magic formula. We had succeeded in creating a warm, welcoming, safe, environment where people from all walks of life could meet and feel comfortable.
Unfortunately 2020 brought with it a global pandemic and we were forced to closed our doors to the public for the very first time.
But like any good video game protagonist we knew we had to level up and so we have created R-CADE Online.
No longer able to welcome the community into our venue, we decided to take our unique brand of fun and video games online. Through video sites like YouTube and Twitch we have dedicated our time to creating amazing content that can be consumed anywhere through desktop, laptop or mobile.
Our little retro gaming venue may be closed to the public for now, but we have been working tirelessly since March 2020 to host lots of online meetups, community events, livestreams for everyone to join in. You can find us on all of the major social platforms for updates, links and R-CADE news.
Our all new Online Store gives everyone the chance to recreate their fondest gaming memories at home with pre-owned hardware and software available to buy with delivery or click and collect. And to complete the full R-CADE experience, all of our favourite snacks and drinks from all around Asia are also be available in the Online Store too.
Nothing will stand in the way of our community, because together we make gaming what it is
