Steampunk at Wackenhammer’s Clockwork Arcade

We’d like to thank Professor Wackenhammer (a.k.a. Joe Bondaryk) for graciously allowing us to hold our May meeting at his arcade in Hyannis, Wackenhammer’s Clockwork Arcade. This was our first meeting since the Maker Faire, and it was great to see everybody again. Joe talked about how he got into steampunk, showed us some of the arcade games that has built, and gave us a tour.

Joe said that he is always looking for ideas for new games, so if there are any makers in the community who are interested in collaborating to design or develop new games, he’d love to hear from you. We wish Joe all the best for a very successful summer!
