About Me |

Welcome to!

ArcadeThunder first opened on July 19, 2011 with the name "Thunder Games". The site was created as a way for me to pass the time, and was also used for many college projects. At the time, Thunder Games was hosted on a free web hosting platform. The site began to grow, and quickly consumed more resources than a free host can handle. I upgraded to a paid server for the site, and also purchased the domain name "". The name of the site has to change because the domain name for Thunder Games was already owned by somebody else. Thunder Games became Arcade Thunder on September 23, 2011.

Over the following months, the site really grew quite a bit. By 2013, hundreds of people were playing games on the site every day. I decided at that time that I wanted to turn the site from a "just for fun project" into a real business, and began exploring revenue opportunities. The site has been steadily growing since, and is now being enjoyed by over 10,000 people every day. So, THANK YOU to all of you that play games here. You are much appreciated!

Independently Owned

Hi! My name is Chris and I started this site in 2011, straight out of High School. I run this site with the help of my wife, Brianna, who took over a lot of the responsibilities starting during the COVID-19 pandemic in Spring 2020.

I started this site so I could use and enjoy my passions for web design and casual gaming in one. I played around with web design with other smaller scale sites, but ArcadeThunder was different. I found myself in college courses tapping my foot, watching the clock, waiting for class to end so I could get home and work on some new idea I had for the site.

Over time, the site has grown more than I could have ever imagined it would. My wife has taken on a huge amount of responsibility with the site, which I am super thankful for. Between us, we try our best to bring you the latest high quality games. Every game you play on here has a personal touch that we both have worked on, rather it is an icon for the game, a how to play or description write up.

I was interviewed by Google for the Google Publisher Cover Story series at the end of 2021. The article is expected to go live on their new site in Mid-2022.
