I don’t know about you, but I love the design and artistry of arcade game cabinets. That’s why I am really digging Mer-Maid Manor. It is just an illustration of an arcade game cabinet, but it hits all the right notes.
This illustration by Zac Gorman is the first in a series of fictional arcade game cabinets that he hopes to create. It gets all of the details just right. Not just the art, but also the premise of the game. The idea behind this game, if it actually existed is described as follows:
Can you clean the manor before the Sea King comes home? In Mer-Maid Manor, you play as two lovely Mer-Maids tasked with cleaning the home of the angry Sea King in time for his daughter’s coronation.
Now somebody needs to make this into an actual game.
