Anarcy Arcade is a shortcut launcher, just like your regular desktop. It replaces your 2D wallpaper image with a 3D world, and replaces your 2D shortcut icons with 3D objects.
It transforms our PCs into 3D metaverses that we can explore with our friends while still getting work done. Performance is always put first. It will not lag your games down. Use AArcade as your everyday desktop, or use it to manage your massive game, movie, or image collection and share with your friends.
AArcade is a "game between games" where you walk up to what you want and click LAUNCH. No more down-time between games!
Easily spawn in new shortcuts or props, modify their properties, and build your dream arcade!
Full Version Games & Apps
AArcade launches ANYTHING that you can run on your PC and runs them at full quality & speed. You'll NEVER have to choose between AArcade or running your games well.

Host any one of your 3D desktops in multiplayer mode. Watch videos with your friends, give tours of your collection, or just hang out on your desktop! (Note that port 27015 must be open to host a public server.)
Virtual Reality (OPTIONAL)
Truly experience the metaverse in 3D using your Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, or other VR devices. The tidal wave of the future is about to hit!
AArcade lets you use your Start menu, alt+tab, use your favorite programs, etc. The things you launch open right on top of AArcade, just as if it was your desktop wallpaper image.
When it needs to, AArcade goes into a deep sleep mode where it releases all of its textures, 3D models, etc. so that your PC is free to run what matters most: the stuff you launch.
