Game Refuge spent nearly three years creating this revolutionary Social Dating Game for TrulySocial Entertainment. Flirt Planet is a sprawling, totally immersive 3D environment that features nearly one hundred thousand lines of interactive dialogue!

"You part of an interplanetary scientific expedition in search of the most powerful energy force in the universe: a Living Organisms Volatile Emotions (L.O.V.E.). Your goal is to assume human form, blend into the planetary population and harvest as much of this energy force as possible! Be warned, however as this force is believed to be a by-product of the attraction between gender-based lifeforms … things may get messy! You will need to communicate, engage, socialize and interact with these beings in ways that seem alien to you at first. But remember, you are not alone… Your fellow scientists will be available to advise you along the way, and they’ve promised not to laugh!


Possibly the wildest vehicular battlegame ever conceived, Arctic Stud Poker Run is a hilarious "Full-Contact Poker" Challenge that must be seen to be believed!

For those who feel that they absolutely need to know the really essential, downright trivial details about the creation of the classic arcade games RAMPAGE and/or XENOPHOBE, recent issues of retroGAMER magazine (#56 and #143) feature exhaustingly in-depth interviews with Game Refuge designer Brian Colin. This slick, oversized British magazine is available in the U.S. at most of the bigger bookstore chains.


Classic Arcade Shirts ... Beer Steins, and More!
CLASSIC ARCADE GAME "DEV TEAM" MEMORABILIA now available for a limited time!
Over the years, whenever we worked on a new Game, we also created promotional stuff to go with it; Shirts, Jerseys, Hats, Mugs, Frisbees... if we could wear it, play with it or drink from it, we slapped a logo on it and gave it away to fans, friends & family! As you might expect, folks have been begging us to re-issue them for years! (some of those shirts are getting pretty threadbare). So, at long last, we are making a number of our "Development-Team-Only" designs available to hard-core joystick junkies and avid arcade admirers alike!
