A Centipede Knockoff

I’d love to see one of these in the Arcade. Centipede is probably my favorite arcade game and honestly, I’d love to see it in TU. Maybe Towerpede or something. That’d be really neat.

Considering Zak is creating a API for users to build there own Arcade Machine Games for Tower Unite, I’m sure many classic Arcade games will be “re-built” for use in Tower.

If it doesn’t come stock, you bet your bottom dollar someone on Workshop will make it. I’ve already set my sights on making a complete “as accurate as possible” re-creation of Pacman for Tower Unite’s Arcade System.


Yes, I’m sure there will be a lot of recreated games for Tower as well, and we might even see a few original ones.

I myself too (although I don’t know anything about Lua other than the few hours I played with LOVE) will also be trying to make a few games using the Arcade System, mostly for learning. One of the ideas is actually original.

are you forgetting about copyright issues ?

If they are workshop items, copyrights 99% of the times are not actually claimed. A quick example if it includes Garry’s Mod itself.

This is the Steam Workshop we’re talking about. There WILL be people ripping off copyright material, whether its in an arcade game form or something else like a player model. There will be no avoiding it in the Workshop; the devs just need to make sure it’s absent from the main game.

You also can’t copyright gameplay. The only thing I can think of that this might get wonky with, is the naming of the games and the graphics in the games. Those can easily be changed.

I want them to make original games that arnt just knockoffs because knockoffs are everywhere if i want to play worms or space invaders i could just go to any of the hundreds of thousands of flash game websites.
