I’m not sure what to make of this drink machine from Arcade Tycoon. It has decorative pull tabs on top, suggesting that it dispenses cans of soda, but the machine itself looks more like a self-serve soda fountain.

The guy in the green shirt doesn’t seem to care either way.

Bomb Dolls is a co-op game where players “eat burgers, pop pills, slam soda, inhale donuts,” while collecting lost souls and trading them for cute outfits. Sounds like a heckuva weekend to me. Thanks to the team at Girl Software for the screenshots!

Astral Chain

Astral Chain, an upcoming action adventure title for the Nintendo Switch, not only features drink machines, but also hamburger and ice cream machines. And whatever that adorable smiley face machine dispenses. Thanks for the screenshots, Counterfeiter!

UPDATE: In a recent tweet, Nintendo confirmed that “vending machines in this near-future city look normal at a glance, but each has an AI with its own personality.” Here’s what you can expect when you interact with a vending machine in Astral Chain.

It’s not every day that you find a vending machine like this one from Game & Wario for the Wii U that sells sodas and moai statues. Thanks for the screenshot, Duncan!

Speaking of moai, everyone should check out moai.games, a collection of screenshots featuring moai from video games. It’s like The Video Game Soda Machine Project, only with stone monoliths!
