If it isn't broke, it isn't pinball.

You'd think this company would have built up enough working capital behind it by now with 65 tables released and having sold their operating system to just about every platform on the market, instead of relying on the public to keep putting their hands into their pocket to fund a new table?

The purpose of a kickstarter is for a new company to get a foothold in the market, not to fund itself in perpetuity.

As always, I'll be happy to pay for the table once it is released, but I'm not going to fund an already well established company to create it.



"To summarize, we first acquire an actual physical pinball table that we have the rights to re-create digitally."

Well at least the company has built up a nice 65 plus physical pinball collection in the process.   &&

totally agree, cash grab as the kickstarter products are dearer than the actual released item when available and quite often the public get it before the kickstarter people

also to with games like Game of Throne and Ghostbusters all the CAD files are done and rendered so not alot to be done in the rendering department

Still cheaper than the real thing. Also good if you are unable to play the real thing for various reasons.
Glad it is getting done on a digital format, spread the love of the silver ball!  *%*

Cancelled has 2 hells.
If you don't remember the 70s then you were on drugs.
If you remember playing pinball in the 70s you were having a good time.
If you don't remember anything,  then read about it here,
