Fabricator and inventor Kenny Vang talks with Arcade Press about the life journey that brought him to make a brand new Arcade Controller format for fighting games.



Kenny tells his story— using gaming as an escape from abuse as a child being locked in a cellar by his mother; he found his solitude in gaming; he started learning how to take things apart at an early age and would sneak to play games.
