Q: Where is it?
A: Currently it is located at 32 Shaddock St, Eden Tce.
The space itself is inside The Idea Collective building in the heart of MOTAT. Go down the ramp and look for the geodesic dome with the Popup Arcade cabinets inside!
Q: Who is it for?
A: Indie game developers, startups, freelancers, students, programmers, artists, animators involved in game development or related creative technology fields who are NZGDA members are all welcome. NZGDA membership is free.
Q: How do I get access?
A: You are welcome to drop-in for a trial visit, hotdesk once a week, use it for projects on weekends or become a regular tenant – just drop us a line first at firstname.lastname@example.org (as the space is not always occupied). Note that general hours are determined by key holders which is listed on our Facebook Group.
The space is available (but not always manned) 7 days a week from 9:30AM to 5:00PM. Contact The Arcade Auckland’s Community Manager Joe Chang on email@example.com to book at time.
Q: How much will it cost?
A: For the time being the space is free for casual visitors who are NZGDA members, and there is a low cost for longer term residents.
Q: Do I need my own computer?
A: Yes, you will need to bring your own hardware (laptops/PCs) for the time being. We will look at providing PCs in the mid-long term for people to use. Wifi is available.
Q: What office facilities does it have?
A: The Arcade Auckland is currently located in MVP Studios, which is a fully serviced managed office.
