Thought they would have moved the top Alien's vagina insert.

I'm curious where people are getting these prices from. I've talked to CT about getting a Full Throttle and the quoted prices were more like 7k/9k. Can't imagine Alien is going to be cheaper.

Quoted from rubberducks:

Direct from Heighway is cheaper, even including shipping to the US.

Strange. But good to know.

Quoted from Hazoff:

Holy Shit, thats amazing. I'm holding off still on this game till I feel a bit more confident in the build and reliabilty issues, however its taking all my inner strength to not order one.

Agreed.

I only got a couple games in at a show this year and despite barely being able to hear the game I still thought it was a lot of fun. And that was on early code. In the home environment, this thing looks like it's going to be a beast.

Keep it up Heighway!

Got to put some games on the one at The Flipper Room in Concord CA this week. Previously I only got a couple games in at Pinfest, and while I enjoyed them, it's tough to get the real experience at a show. This experience was so much fun! Talk about immersion. The sounds/video/modes are fantastic!

Ended up getting through All Out War and then starting a few more modes on my last game. Really a great game.

If you're in the area, the games at the Flipper room are all in amazing shape and as a bonus there is great pinball and misc art hung all over the place. Definitely check it out if you can.

Quoted from Oneangrymo:

Man this game sucks. Good thing the company went out business.. horrible horrible game. Wish I never bought it. Lost 10K for nothing. now I get a paper weight that does nothing but lights up, and makes weird sounds/music/call overs. I wish I lived on a second story building then I can throw it out the window. How can these idiots come up with such a piece of crap machine. Morons.. all morons
Does this sound better ?

Quoted from iceman44:

The people worldwide that are kicking F ing ass on this pin and the Alien community is AWESOME!
Andrew should have open sourced this venture a long time ago. Love this game!

This thread is great. I've got no skin in the game other than I've really enjoyed the games I've gotten in on a working Alien. If things would have went differently, I would most likely have bought one.

It really is a pleasure watching this thread though. Every time I check in some new progress has been made and there always seems to be more on the horizon. Great work everyone Really glad it seems like the owners will be able to keep these working as long as they want.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Yep, there’s a huge team of people tackling the code right now.
They got ‘em working in shifts!

Leads!

As a former TBL owner, Alien is the vastly superior pin. Don't remotely miss TBL. Would very much like to play some more Alien.
