Some material may be inappropriate for persons under age 16. If this were a movie, it would probably be between PG-13 and R.
It's 1987. California has been ravaged by nuclear war and the gangs rule the shattered cities. Ellie and her crew of arcade-obsessed survivors hatch a plan to raid the abandoned Atari Inc headquarters in Sunnyvale.

This is an adaptation of my short story which originally appeared in a mash-up Anthology called "Worlds Collide" by Nordic Press in 2021. It was also the first story I ever had accepted for publication. You can download the original story here for free - The Last Arcade In San Jose
