Gaming Service: Game Room

Group Description

Game Room was a frontend for emulated versions of retro video games from the Atari 2600, Intellivision, and Arcade platforms. Published by Microsoft Game Studios and developed by Krome Studios, it was available for XBOX 360, Windows, and Windows Phone platforms.

The Game Room itself appears as an arcade with individuals rooms that could be decorated with different background themes and items. The games the player purchased appeared as arcade cabinets and could be placed in each room. A room could hold up to eight different arcade cabinets.

Games were released a couple at a time and were downloaded as game packs. Players could play demos of the games on the game pack but each game had to be purchased individually to fully unlock it.

The games themselves offered gold, silver and bronze medals when certain objectives were met. These medals in turn earned the player experience where they could gain a level and gain access to new themes and items for their game room.

The service started on March 24, 2010 and game releases ended with the release of the thirteenth game pack on December 22, 2010. In 2015, Game Room itself and its associated games were delisted for purchase from Microsoft's online store.
