The Polycade updates the arcade interface for the 21st century.

Ever wish you could play your favorite arcade games from the glory days of the arcade? Bummed that contemporary games aren't available on arcade interfaces? Wish there was a plug-and-play, super sleek arcade cabinet capable of playing classic and modern games? 

Look no further; the Polycade is the most capable retro + modern arcade machine in the galaxy.

The Arcade Interface You've Been Waiting For


Minimal Footprint. Maximum Playability.

The Polycade is the smallest full-size arcade machine out there. We have tested and revised the form factor over the course of two years, resulting in a machine that plays like a full size arcade machine, while taking up one third the space.

Not only will the Polycade fit in any home, apartment, or office, you'll save over $200 in shipping charges compared to other full size arcade machines on the market.

Full Appstore

The Polycade leverages the power of the Steam appstore to provide you with a seemingly endless universe of games. Both retro and modern games are sold via the Steam appstore, so you're sure to have great titles to keep you occupied for decades!

Compete online, share achievements with friends, and download new content. All with our easy to use control interface.



Thousands Of Games Available

* Not all games listed are included. Titles not included may be purchased through the Steam service.


Quality Hardware

The cabinet is built from a combination of powder coated steel and laminated plywood. Each of these components is cut out by robots and assembled by hand.

Every Polycade includes a two player joystick + buttons setup as well as a trackball.

The Polycade uses Sanwa joysticks and buttons for their ultra-fast response time and reliability.

The trackball enables you to play classics like Centipede, Missile Command, Marble Madness, etc. using the original control interface these games were built for.

Additionally, the trackball doubles as a mouse for navigation or any desktop applications.


Feature Packed Audio

Each Polycade is equipped with two full range speakers powered by a 35W + 35W amplifier.

The front panel includes a volume control for convenience, as well as a headphone port in case you'd like to play without disturbing those around you.

We additionally include a microphone port for those interested in live streaming from their Polycade.



Airplay Enabled

With Apple's Airplay, your Polycade doubles as a jukebox. Simply stream music from your phone directly to the speakers on your Polycade. 

From our own personal experience, this feature is very helpful in convincing your significant other that the Polycade belongs in your living room!



Emulation Ready

The Polycade comes pre-configured with emulator software, enabling you to add your game ROMs with ease (game ROMs are not included). Seamlessly browse your Steam library to choose from your emulated games or Steam games.
