Drop of a hat, 26 Clinton is as playful as a pussycat.

Here at the former tattoo studio of Bang Bang, the Killer Queen arcade experience is holding court. Boogie reader Lambert Jack snapped this photo of the twin cabinets sitting by their lonesome in the white-box space. We are told that this is a permanent “mini” arcade workshop with this cabinet is the showpiece. Apparently developers will also be working on additional games onsite, as well. Working name of the joint is “WAKA WAKA.”

Designed by Nikita Mikros and Joshua DeBonis, Killer Queen is uber-popular on the indie circuit. The creators claim gameplay combines the addictive elements of Joust and Starcraft. It’s a five-on-five battle with “Two teams, each led by a powerful Queen, face off to be the first to bring the giant snail god home, fill their hive with nectar, or execute a triple assassination of the enemy Queen.”
