The Spy Who Shrunk Me, a stealth game starring an operative armed with a shrink ray, is out today, and the developers were kind enough to share this screenshot of a Kommuni Kola machine in advance. Thanks, Tomi!
My musclebound avatar is all oiled up and performing what I understand to be the dab in front of a soda machine in Sun’s Out, Guns Out. Thanks for letting me know about this perplexing flexing game, Cornelius.

Thanks for the tip on this one, Cornelius.
The entire goal of Cut & Run is to slice up as many environmental objects with your sword as possible before time runs out, but I just can’t find it in my heart to harm these innocent drink machines.
I find something about this soda machine from LACURA, a first-person narrative adventure, vaguely off-putting. Thanks for the heads-up on this one, Cornelius!
When the timeline has collapsed and Ancient Gods have emerged to threaten all of reality, it’s good to know you can still rely on soda machines in Dimension Drifter. Thanks for the screenshot, AnTytle!
This soda machine is allegedly from Project CARS 2, but Finn McMissile and Mater are nowhere to be found, so take that with a grain of salt. Thanks for grabbing this screenshot, Cornelius!
Brownie Cove Cancelled is a game about wasting time in an airport after your flight has been cancelled, and what better way to waste time than staring intently at an empty vending machine? Thanks for the screenshot, Cornelius!

Pawn your weird scarf and use the money to buy a soda in The Hand of Glory, an upcoming detective adventure inspired by games like Gabriel Knight and Broken Sword.
I wonder what kind of soda it dispenses…
Yeah, maybe that scarf isn’t so bad after all. Thanks for tracking this one down, Cornelius!
These ersatz Coke machines appear in Smombie GO, a game that challenges players to “explore town, find and eliminate all portals which generate Smombies unlimitedly.” It’s the Smobie apocalypse!

This Wellcheers Ocean Soda machine appears in Lobotomy Corporation, a Korean monster management sim. I have no idea why those prawns are cosplaying as Minions.
Flavor text for the Wellcheers machine warns,”If someone offers you an opened can of grape-flavored soda, you must reject it.” According to the wiki, it’s a reference to “a Korean internet urban myth where people will allegedly go missing after drinking from a sleeping pill-laced opened can of Welch’s Grape Juice. They will then be abducted and held captive in fishing boats.” [Source]

Okay, so it seems the new Leisure Suit Larry game has gone out of its way to troll me with an off-screen soda machine. How do I know I’m being trolled? Well, the game’s lead writer tweeted this a couple of months ago…
How could someone toy with my emotions like this? Thanks for the screenshot, Richard!
Even the soda machines are creepily corrupted in Silent Hill: Origins. Thanks for the screenshot, Andrew!
This screenshot from Syphon Filter 3 for the PlayStation 1 is open to interpretation, but I’m pretty sure the vending machine on the right is stocked with drinks. The one on the left looks more like a cigarette machine to me.
Soda machines, uh, find a way in LEGO Jurassic World. Thanks for the screenshot, Cornelius!
