Sorry for the radio silence for a while. A long run of summer shows saw me and a lot of my team crossing timezones every week.
Nevertheless, we continue to make very good progress with Alien Pinball.
The reality of this title is that FOX have said all along that they do not want everything to be revealed publicly until the game is as good as finished. As a company and a partner with FOX, we must respect their wishes - even though we would love to show you much more than we have done up to this point.
It is true that I have showed certain elements of the game to people in private, and these people have reported back here, and in forums around the world, as to what they have seen and what they thought of it.
So what can I tell you? I have two meetings with FOX over the next 2 weeks. The schedule we are working to is as follows:
We want to show a working version of Alien within the first quarter of 2016 - and this could even be in January.
Full Throttle will be running on our production line exclusively until the end of March, at which point Alien is scheduled to start running on the line as well.
All team members are working to these goals.
The reality is that we may not be able to show you much more until the game is nearly finished - but we can promise you that we will show you as much as possible as soon as possible.
To answer someone else's question - yes we will be at Texas in March.
One final point about the large LCD screen - it takes seconds to change over the translite panel - so to those who love seeing the backglass art at all times when the game is switched off, there's nothing stopping customers swapping the backglass panels over whenever needed.
