About Adrenaline Amusements

Adrenaline Amusements builds entertainment products for today’s kids—and for the kid in every one of us. Adrenaline’s mission is to develop and introduce a new breed of entertainment products to the arcade industry. Since its foundation in 2010, Adrenaline has worked to align the coin-op industry with what is played today. The company’ first multi-touch platform was introduced for the first time on November 2010 under the name TouchFX. The first game that was introduced was a version of the popular app Fruit Ninja, with other arcade machines featuring Infinity Blade and Flight Control games following soon after. Adrenaline launched the new cross-platform franchise Blackout, starting with the arcade version in November 2012 and the iOS version in June 2013.

While video games’ gameplay has evolved from traditional controls to multi-touch surfaces, the arcade game industry has not adapted to the trends of today’s players. Along with newly acquired Sarbakan, Adrenaline plans to change the game.?Seeing is believing.?To find out more on Adrenaline and our partners, visit? www.aagames.com.
