Quoted from Jared:

Great communication from this company!

For now. As I recall, all of the "boutique" guys start out this way. Time will tell if this one will be different.

Not trying to be negative, as I like this machine; just trying to be a realist. I hope this machine sees the light of day, in large quantities.

Quoted from TimeBandit:

Terribly cliche to go after my year of birth, but waddya gonna do?

Cliche, huh? Ok, I'm in as well. #58 LE here. Year of my birth. Can't wait!

#1233 5 years ago

Actually I prefer old fart or codger....

Quoted from MK6PIN:

.pretty cool that a title like this can transcend generations...

Agreed. I think most sci-fi stuff spans generations. I loved this movie theme and can't wait to see what Heighway comes up with. I'm hoping they can capture a lot of the suspense of the movie. The pulsing egg and beacons will definitely make some of that happen.

21st-23rd August 2015 (at Heighway Pinball’s factory in Merthyr Tydfil, UK) as the global launch of this game.

The clock is ticking .......

Looking forward to seeing something.

Aurich,

Like the BG artwork. Although I know that Heighway is proud of this, can their logo be downsized like was done for the Fox logo? It sticks out like a sore thumb. If it cannot be downsized, perhaps it can be assimilated into the machinery artwork much like the xenomprph does. I'm sure the logo will appear elsewhere on the machine so as to let everyone know who created this. Just a thought.

Definitely looks very good. Can't wait to see more of the artwork. Thanks.

Quoted from way2wyrd:

Java applets really? Let expound on HTML5 and the benefits therin or shall we digress into EJB Beans or Active X and other NPAPI plugins in Edge and whether

Pardon me, I seem to be a little lost. Is this the Interwebs? Would someone kindly point me in the right direction? Thanks.

Oh, and so as not to completely go off topic.... Aurich, any news from Fox yet on the artwork?

#2992 4 years ago
Quoted from Aurich:

In the meantime, I can't show anything I'm working on right now because it has to go through Fox's approval still. But here's a peek at something on my screen that's legal-friendly.

WOW! Based on this alone, I just put a deposit on an LE. The detail in that screenshot captures all of the "dark" feeling of the Alien environment. Thanks Aurich!

Seriously though, I had put down a deposit on an LE (#58) months ago. I think this pin, with the Team working on it can do nothing but hit it out of the park. I strongly believe it will be visually stunning based upon what we've seen of Aurich's work on other themes as well as Heighway's unique approach to cabinet design. I've not played a machine yet with an lcd embedded in the playfield but I like the idea. If and when the details on Alien emerge and I don't care for what I see, I can get my deposit back. I do not forsee any dislike of this game.

Quoted from Aurich:

Checking out some updated animations from Kelly. I think he's nailing it........

Wait a minute there Aurich! How dare you write some Alien related stuff in this post! Can't you see this train has jumped the track a long time ago?

Seriously though, I'm glad to see Heighway change some things up with FTH. There are some very cool ideas in that machine. I think it demonstrates some new thinking for pinball design. Imagine how Alien will look/feel/play based upon what we know of FTH. I'm excited enough about Alien to have placed a deposit for an LE (#58). The point at which I firmed my decision was when Andrew announced that Aurich would be doing the artwork. I'd definitely like to see some artwork, playfield pics and so on but I am a patient person.

Quoted from emkay:

I don't know why the US still prints $1 bills

Two reasons:

1) $1 and $2 bills cost 5.5 cents to make; $1 coins cost 10 cents to make

2) Americans do not want to give up the $1 bill. We like our paper money. Think of all the places where dollar bill validators would have to be replaced. Cost is too high to make that "forklift upgrade".

I really don't see how that playfield is going to work. There's a rather large square hole in the middle of the playfield.

Has anyone made their payment yet that was due?

I have not and will not until I see the remainder of the LE package as production has definitely not started. I'll gladly pay the balance once I see those things.

Quoted from Dee-Bow:

Quoted from spfxted:

Doesn't have to mean that for sure, but just making sure they realize how important a timely refund is to everyone.

just wondering if you have a deposit down on a standard or a LE ?

Quoted from Dee-Bow:

And how about Rob?

Let me make sure I understand your point.

So apparently only someone that has money down on the machine can have an opinion or ask questions? If they both do not, does that make their opinions or questions invalid?

BASES. BALLS. DISCUSS.

Two teams, play seven games. One team wins 4 games, the other team wins 3. Team with 4 wins gets trophy and the adulation of many fans.

Now back to pitchforkery and bashing.
