If you’ve ever stayed awake for two days straight jumping, punching and head-butting your way through turtles and venus fly traps, travelling through time to save a mysterious princess or eviscerating space pirates as an intergalactic bounty-hunter then you’ll definitely appreciate Art of the Arcade. The slow-growing online archive catalogues the vintage graphics and packaging of some classic gaming institutions, showing off the finest neon graphic design the 1980s had to offer. Currently the content is mostly limited to Atari and Nintendo, but we’re expecting to see a whole lot of SEGA, Capcom and Namco titles appearing pretty soon. A perfect bit of nostalgia to ease you back in to the working week.
