Arcade Land is developed on an island on the sea where the user must manage Jake, the protagonist, through various challenges for you to explore the whole place. The story mode is based on the main character, who must overcome various challenges and fight their enemies to progress on the island.

This program was conducted by the company of social work Helping Social Marketing, and the video game company Koth Studio and co-produced by Sony in its PlayStation Talents program, who have dedicated themselves to realize this project in the last year. Helping Social Marketing is an organization that has so far supported the creation of a hundred social enterprises. This program provides financial support to finance the first expenses to be born.

The developers worked on the project together with experts in rehabilitation, and the game was tested by the people with cerebral palsy. This is the first time a commercial platform is available to the people affected by cerebral palsy, a game tailor made.

The game is known as Arcade Land will be available in late April and early May in Spain and then throughout Europe where it will be launched for 9.99 euros and later to the United States of America and Europe.
