The sub-genre of fantasy and speculative Victorian fiction that is Steampunk has crept into retro-gaming once again. The monster MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) is a creepy and creative arcade style multi-platform game.

Steampunk fanatic Doug Haffner created the awesome arcade mod suitably named 'Dr. Victor Frankenstein Monster Arcade' from scratch utilizing both vintage styling and modern technology.

Haffner's spectacular use of backlighting adds to the specter of this spooky steampunk monster machine.

Implications - With so many modern products hitting the market, many individuals are yearning for commodities of times gone by. Companies would be wise to offer retro products that induce a sense of nostalgia among users, as this will attract a large consumer base.
