I remember Dennis said it was a fast flowing game at expo and
compared it to Demolition Man with lots of combo shots.
Looking at the latest playfield renders I can see all the combo possibilities
which has me pretty excited for this thing.

Looks like they just had the Full Throttle launch party yesterday.


Cool game, and I'm glad its coming out soon, but waiting on ALIEN pics like everybody here...

Whitewood looks great even without all of the ramps and toys, art etc.

Looks like the shots flow into each other really well.
Did the art ever get approved? I remember right after expo they were waiting to get things approved.

Maybe they don't want to show us until the whole package is together.

Holy crap! I've been staring at the layout for about 10 minutes, taking it all in ( blow it up and take a close look if you haven't yet ).
THIS is how to do a widebody game - it looks amazing. Add Aurich's artwork to the mix and we could really be looking at a top tier game. Please tell me we'll be able to flip it in Chicago this year...

Quoted from jackSparrow:

No Nostromo?
No Egg?
No Facehugger?
Not much from Alien 1.

I think I heard there were translucent, lit eggs to be on top of the pop bumpers.
Sounded pretty cool to me.

Quoted from desertT1:

I would suggest reaching out to dead_flip here as he is in Chicago to stream gameplay of it. I'd tune in for that as a potential customer for sure.

That is a GREAT idea! I would love to see Jack get a couple of hours to stream ALIEN and really show us what it can do.

It looks like the left ramp has been changed a bit to make it flow back to the flipper faster.
Anyone else notice this - is it different than what we saw in Chicago?

Huge congrats to Team Highway! This is a dream theme for me.

Can't wait to play one in Texas. I may have some decisions to make...

Great job Team Heighway!

Quoted from brian-allen:

Hi - hope I can post this here. My name is Brian Allen, I'm the artist who illustrated the backglass Alien Queen for the LE. I thought you guys might be interested in seeing this speed-painting video of how the artwork was created: » YouTube video
THANKS SO MUCH for all the positive feedback I've gotten for about the design. It was truly one of my favorite projects ever.

That backglass art is truly amazing! Great work, sir! The highlight of the Alien LE package.
