Hello! My name is Alex Greene and I design custom arcade/ pinball cabinets! 

WHAT I DO
To put it simple, I build modern virtual arcade cabinets. I take modern pop culture and bring them back to age of the arcade. I also bring fake arcade games from cartoons into real life.
I can create anything your heart desires. For example, if you love Rick and Morty, I re-created a cabinet around the Rick and Morty game ROY from Blipz and Chitz. I customized a VR headset to look just like the helmet from the cartoon along with designing the cabinet to really look like it was from the show.
Along with custom cabinets, I also create graphics for Xtension virtual pinball cabinets. If you are going to spend thousands of dollars on a virtual pinball machine, you better love what it’s going to look like. That’s where I come in. Let’s make your dream pinball cabinet a reality. 


ABOUT ME
When I was young, I didn’t have a lot of friends. My only friends were super nerdy and all loved video games and drawing. We were all bullied on a daily basis and were forced to think that video games and art were the reason we were bullied. It wasn’t cool to like that stuff in the 90’s. It got so bad that I thought not being alive would be better than being bullied. I was forced to make a change to make it all stop.
We all moved away from gaming as we got older and got coorperate jobs. 
I had a mental break down one day because I could not find happiness in anything I was doing. I was a very creative person, but life was pushing me in every direction but the way I wanted for my self. I decided to spend all my free time doing anything I could that was creative. I would freelance graphic design, create failing clothing companies, make videos, make comics, anything I could to just stay creative and get that urge out. 
My wife brought me to a retro arcade (the first time I have ever been to a REAL arcade since I was a child). Something went off in 
my head. I knew what I wanted to do and would spend all my free time pursuing it. I wanted to create retro arcade cabinets for anyone and everyone who has the same love for art and video games as me. The moment I started, I could not stop. I spent an entire weekend designing my first one. This is what I want to do for the rest of my life. I want the next generation to experience what I did that one night at the arcade. 


Why Patreon? 
I decided to join because I just want more people to see what I do. My goal is to build 1 of 1 cabinets that I can bring around for all to play. While I create cabinets for all of you, I want to create them for my self. By building for my self actually means building another one for you! I plan on bringing my creations to local arcades, bars, events, charities, and much more so everyone can enjoy what I create. 
To make it simple, I don’t have the funds to build my first one. I hate asking for help, but this is honestly the only way I can show the world how amazing the old cabinets were. While we move further and further into the digital age, video games have become less and less social. Before you cut my head off for saying that, hear me out. Do you remember when you would go over to a friends house to play a game they just got? They have one good controller and one crappy one... you get the crappy one. How about your friends birthday at the arcade? I know I had a lot of those! We would fight over turns to play X-man and The Simpson’s. Today, you might be connected to thousands of people would have never been before, but they are also alone on the couch.
That’s the reason I am here. I want to create what brought us all together but with a modern spin. I want everyone to play together on the same screen and fight once for the controller that doesn’t have the sticky buttons.

Goals
$0 of $1,500 per month
My main goal is to build my first demo cabinet. This will allow my to show off what I can really do and let people watch the entire process of what it takes to build an arcade cabinet. This will be the cabinet I bring to events to show what I can build for you! 
This amount will cover all materials needed.
