The Arkade is a Plug and Play gaming device which bundles in all the 8-bit collection of games by Wisdom Tree. This plug and play will consist only in a retro gaming style controller with A/V and AC output. Just plug in to your Composite connections on your TV and turn it on to start to play.
We are asking for $16,500 to complete a production run of the plug and play (500 units).
We decided to go with a traditional 8-bit controller design, as the games included are all for the NES; it would be easier to be fully functional and would avoid any compatibility headaches.
There was a long hiatus from the company and brand, but Wisdom Tree is still active today, mainly re-distributing our games in cartridge format, and re-mastering selected titles to current systems.
The titles included in The Arkade will be:
- Sunday Funday
- Spiritual Warfare
- Joshua - The Battle of Jericho
- Bible Adventures
- King of Kings
- Bible Buffet

The prototype shown in the pictures and in the video is the final version on the physical side. We have already located the mold and have a factory on line to start a production run.
However on the software side there are still a few bugs to fix, along with some design hiccups that you may see on the pictures shown.
We have put together a list of physical reward project that will be available for the campaign.

Risks and challenges
Having Piko Interactive as the Parent Company for Wisdom Tree, it give us peace of mind that we will be able to use their infrastructure to produce and distribute the rewards with ease. However we will prepare any measure needed in case any problem arises.
Another Risk/Challenge that really comes to mind is the Shipping and Handling of Packages, because in our experience the carrier we normally use to keep the costs to the customer down (USPS) sometimes mishandles and loses packages. In any case a problem like this arises, we will make sure to stay on top of it and give the best customer service and communication possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
