Metro Maniac is a 2D simulation of Singapore’s train system — complete with soda and hot beverage machines. Thanks for the screenshot, Cornelius!
In April 2018, I was part of a team of scholars that presented at the Rutgers-Camden Archive of Digital Ephemera (R-CADE) Symposium. For the presentation, our team acquired, restored, and digitally recreated a 1979 Tri Zone pinball machine. Designer Matt Mundell included this bespoke Generic Soda!!! machine in the background as a nod to my work here at the Video Game Soda Machine Project. Thanks, Matt!
This is an all-points bulletin. Be on the lookout for cola machine, approximately six feet tall, dispenses regular and diet drinks. Repeat: suspect dispenses regular and diet drinks. Thanks for the screenshot, Ernie!
Pato Box is a stylish adventure/fighting game inspired by Nintendo’s Punch-Out!! series. If you ask me, though, they missed a real opportunity here to reference Soda Popinski on the vending machine. [Source]
The text on this vending machine from first-person survival shooter DESOLATE translates to “a charge of freshness,” which is an above-average drink slogan. [Source]
Why go to the vending machine when the vending machine can come to you? Mr. Vendroid is a walking, talking vending machine that dispenses lemonade and other consumables to Grav players. Thanks for the screenshot, Aylad!
Caligula Overdose, a JRPG for the PlayStation 4, takes place in a virtual world that provides an escape from everyday life in the form of an “idyllic” high school setting. That’s not how I remember high school, but hey—at least there’s a soda machine. Thanks, Tikhon!
A video game sequel should always strive to improve on the original. For instance, the soda machines in Secret Service: Security Breach actually have dispensing trays (in contrast to those featured in its predecessor, Secret Service: In Harm’s Way).
Why so sad, random guy from Alpha Prime? There’s a drink machine right over there. [Source]
It’s difficult to make out the logo on this drink machine from Blind Shot: Assassin’s Confession (Sim Beer? Pim Beer?), but given the Coke-inspired design and its placement in a hospital lobby, I’m going to assume it dispenses some kind of soda. [Source]
For a game called State of Decay 2, these vending machines appear to be in decent enough shape. Thanks for the screenshot, combat honey!
You know a game like Secret Service: In Harm’s Way is going to be good when its default installation directory is named “Activision Value.” But, hey — at least they had room in the budget for multiple soda machine designs!
There are coffee machines in the game, too — although the artist didn’t exactly nail the spelling on “coffee.”
Please note the absence of any kind of dispensing tray on all three models. Activision Value indeed.
Drink cola to restore health in Hell Hound. Just keep it quiet unless you want to alert the devilish beast stalking your military base. Thanks, Josh!
