Arcade History

  • Published on Oct 6, 2019
  • You got gamer blood? Doubt. At least not until you've seen this brief comical recount of game arcade history- join GingerPale as he visits the three main eras; the penny arcade, the golden age of the 80s and the present day attempts we are left with. It'll have you going 'hehe oh yeah i know that game haha- very relatable. Thank you mr. GpApi'
    Special thanks to my friends who also make nice vidoo:
    Allanah (Voice):
    Nevercake (Voice and Animation Help):
    Thank you very much to Buffer Film Festival for having me out to Toronto to premiere this video! Super awesome experience getting to see this up on a big screen and meet and watch so many talented film makers.

    A gingerpale video is like trying to have sex in a car. You go into it feeling optimistic and thinking “wow I’m gonna have so much fun”, but it ends up hurting you both physically and emotionally.
    Just kidding love your videos my dude
