  • Brent Bushnell is the CEO and co-founder of Two Bit Circus that has created an amusement park style attraction that is focused on gaming in Los Angeles. "Two Bit Circus is trying to create a living, breathing world that’s tied together through communal gameplay, secret quests, and live actors, where guests may show up to play an arcade cabinet, but could soon find themselves pulled into a real-life story that will allow them to uncover the hidden mysteries of the park’s (alleged) past."
