A contract to open game lounges at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport attracted just one proposal by the due date Thursday.

The company, calling itself Sky Gamerz, submitted a proposal for the contract to open and operate game lounges on Concourses E and T at the world’s busiest airport.

The airport previously launched an attempt to open interactive game lounges for “a gaming experience akin to that provided by Wii, Kinect, etc.” with admission charges or fees to play games, along with a free nursing station and children’s play area. However, that contracting process started in 2013 was not completed.

One of the challenges is generating enough revenue from a game lounge to cover the costs of operating at the airport.
