Immerse yourself in the metaverse by transforming your desktop & the internet into a 3D world you can explore with your friends.
Anarchy Arcade is a media-focused 3D desktop with multiplayer and internet capabilities. It's unlike any game or program you've ever played before. With it you can consolidate everything you do on your PC into a fun & interactive gaming experience.
You use Anarchy Arcade to:
Create personalized, immersive 3D experiences filled with your favorite things.
Launch the links, games, movies, and other 3D shortcuts just like normal.
Share these experiences with your friends in multiplayer or web links.
Merging Reality with Virtual Reality
Anarchy Arcade lets you spawn real-life games, movies, pictures, and other media (directly from your PC or the internet) into the virtual world. In the screenshots here on the Steam Store page, we have labeled these real-life media items with a [CENSORED] sticker so you can easily see them. Just imagine your favorite stuff under those stickers.
Anarchy Arcade has persistent worlds. You never have to worry about saving or loading your progress. Things are always just as you left them. Each map gets transformed into a personalized 3D desktop.
In singleplayer, you always start in an empty arcade and turn it into an awesome arcade by spawning 3D shortcuts to your favorite games & movies. Everything you put into your arcade is worth a certain amount of points. When your arcade is worth enough points, you unlock the next arcade in the campaign.
Hosting or joining a multiplayer arcade allows you to explore the collections of your friends by walking around with them in the 3D world, much like singleplayer. Anarchy Arcade can launch the 3D shortcuts for any game or movie that you personally have access to. It can also give you links to places you can buy or download games or movies that you don't have access to.
In-game previews can be synchronized so you and your friend can watch videos together right inside of the virtual world!
NOTE: Anarchy Arcade does NOT use peer-to-peer file sharing or screen sharing functionality. You must personally have access to a game or movie to be able to play it. However, synchronized local file playback and other techniques are used to give the illusion of file and screen sharing without the need for strict moderation.
Anarchy Arcade is a Sandbox

Anarchy Arcade's gameplay is focused towards media uses such as games, movies, music, etc. However, you are free to use it how ever you like. This is anarchy after all, you make the rules!
