Did you use that DERAILMENT photo because it looks like the Alien Ship???

You caught that. Good eye!

More info on the Zen tables https://blog.zenstudios.com/?p=6223

They look ok, but the layouts don't really seem to interesting unlike heighways!

#5355 3 years ago

Yep, video games are one thing, but they will never hold a candle to the real thing!

But at least the Alien vidya versions might cause people with interest to do a search and discover what Heighway has in the works.

Not saying people will rush out and buy one but it may very well cost them a pocket full of quarters if they stumble across the tangible real thing on location having been enamored with the vidya vesions.

Quoted from TheLaw:

Too much art on the PF...it's really taking down the immersion.

Seeing all 3 Zen tables is really telling when you compare their playfield "artwork" to Heighway's. I'm sure all 3 of them are more like what everyone was envisioning and hoping for. What a shame.

#5358 3 years ago

Its been awfully quiet. Id love any kind of update

#5359 3 years ago

The Zen tables look fantasic. Ductwork and interior wall panels really tie the pin together and set the mood.

Opinions are all over. Never make everyone happy. The Zen tables, except for AVP look Stern-esque(tm) and a bit cheesy to me. What a shame?

It would be nice to see some kind of update on Alien Day, which is just about a week away. If not, no big deal, it's not the end of the world. They're just working hard right now & they'll give an update when they're ready

I do miss Aurich's posts tho

#5362 3 years ago

The AVP looks cool but I like Aurichs PF more than the 2 Zen Alien PF's.

Agreed. And they're Apples and Oranges, as you said before.

Why not open a new thread about Zen pinball? This is under the subforum "Heighway Pinball" so I think it is a little derailing/off topic/disrespectful to talk about Zen pinball here

Hate to say this and wish it wasn't the case but this happens when theres nothing to discuss regarding the pin itself, I need something soon, getting restless.

#5371 3 years ago

4/26 seems likely for an update

#5372 3 years ago

ZEN ALIEN!

This thread has descended into internet-AIDS ... hopefully Heighway do show something substantive soon.

#5382 3 years ago

Heighway should appreciate and say a huge "thank you" now that this thread is currently "on fire"!

#5383 3 years ago

I've been checking out this Alien blog called 'Strange Shapes'. The post 'The Engineers' talks about Brett and Parker. Apparently, Yaphet Kotto (Parker) was offered the role of Lando Calrissian and turned it down as he assumed the character would be killed off. Both are named after pro athletes, and Parker got some ad-lib lines in the movie. He was also privately instructed by Ridley to annoy Sigourney as much as possible to create more tension on camera between them.
They even show an image of the 'adult' magazine Parker was reading in the movie...for the hard core collectors out there who might feel the need to aquire one.

I don't know anything about "Alien Day"

#5385 3 years ago

#5386 3 years ago

Yes an Alien day update is needed. 420 day, each and every day. Nothing to do here but speculate.

Hi everyone,

Just a quick update for you.

As you know, we showed an exclusive Alien gameplay video at the Texas Pinball Festival last month.

The game has moved forwards significantly since then. We are currently finishing a NEW video and will be shortly submitting it to FOX for approval to show this in public.

If we can show this on 'Alien Day' then we will. If not, then we will push for it to be shown as soon after as possible.

We will keep you updated as to our progress.

Thanks for the update. I think this thread was in danger of bursting a blood vessel or something

I would believe in the celebratory spirit of Fox's "Alien Day," approval of a public showing would be readily forth coming and provide for the community a glimpse of just how far the Heighway Team has been allowed to travel down the Alien rabbit hole.

Really looking forward to an example of what a tangible pin designed to be "true to the Alien/s Universe" will look, sound, and play like. Fingers crossed.

Certainly a video of such consequence would go viral surrounding the context of that particular day and give Heighway worldwide exposure to the people most interested in the Alien/s theme.

Or am I just dreaming?

Dreaming, I'm afraid. Even as someone who owns almost 30 pinball machines, I'm still aware of the bitter reality that in the broader social context, pinball is essentially irrelevant.

No you are not.
It will call the attention of many Alien fans that are not pin fans, but know and like the Zen pinball tables. Many of these "virtual players" will enter the real pin world. You hear stories of it every time, guys that found out about the real pinball world through vp, zen or tpa.

Yep, that is me. I wouldn't be into Pinball if not for The Pinball Arcade digital platform.

I did the natural evolutionary pattern...King of Kong movie, first video game, 12 more video games, discovered pinball. I'll get excited about video games again the day I finally find a Space Fury.

Getting excited about Alien Day...reading about all the goodies coming that day and what I might be interested in. The local theatres don't seem to have anything screening sadly, hopefully somebody within a reasonable range will have something planned.

My evolution wasn't so natural.I discovered pinball first...
