Onion Arcade FAQ

What does this have to do with Security Onion?
Please see the video for a full explanation:

Is Onion Arcade for sale?
No, it's mine, all mine!  :)

Is it running emulators/ROMs?
Nope, under the hood is a real Super Nintendo SNS-101 (Mini) and a real SNES cartridge.

Where did the artwork come from?
I found a Creative Commons licensed Mandelbrot fractal on Wikipedia and added neon logos using the Gimp graphics editor.

The Mandelbrot fractal background was created by Wolfgang Beyer with the program Ultra Fractal 3 and licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported license.  For more information:
