    I drove over to the DR office today, saw what was going on but signed an NDA agreeing not to disclose anything.

    The agreement was dated Oct 5 so I can confirm that BTTF is a DR pin!!!

    Quoted from Rarehero:

    Can’t believe people actually admitting willingness to blind buy something from a company that’s done nothing but hire the criminal Jpop as long as it has a license they like.
    No one has learned anything.

    Quoted from Eskaybee:

    Yawn all you want. He’s got a point. Call me crazy, but Even if you take JPOP out of the equation, we might want to see what deeproot can do before giving them our $.

    We don’t need another lecture from anyone telling us what to do or how to spend our $$$

    We are all quite aware of the past

    And I don’t see anyone giving DR a DIME

    It’s clear they have the funding to NOT need it

    All I see is them trying to rectify a bad situation and make pinball machines

    To taint these guys with the stench of others is complete BS. Jpop or not

    Here’s a clap

    Quoted from gweempose:

    They tainted themselves the second they associated with Jpop.

    Maybe so. But life goes on. And it’s too short to harbor hate

    Just because Jpop works there, and I’m on the record as being one of his biggest critics, isn’t going to keep me or others from buying a pinball machine from DR

    That’s actually ridiculous imo

    Quoted from TheFamilyArcade:

    Ice, SKB’s one of the good guys. Cool out a little, willya? DeepRoot actually sounds really interesting these days. But if their game turns out to be like Thunderbirds I’m just gonna laugh my ass off. Robert has a huge ego.with his ego, and the staff he’s assembled, his games better be GOOD. Otherwise this has been an epic prick tease.

    Skb is def one of my favorite dudes here, the other guy isn’t.

    Yes Robert has come off like a prick and many hope that he fails because of it. I guess if I was rolling the dice with $13 million of other peoples money I’d sound a bit confident too

    Remains to be seen and yes 100%, if it turns out like Thunderbirds there is going to be hell to pay!

    He has staff and money. Can they make great pinball? Let’s see

    Bottom line, they aren’t asking for a dime from us so other than Jpop and his attitude, what’s not to like?

    If pigs had wings they could fly.........

    1) They hired some great talent across the board, notwithstanding Jpop
    2) They have a shitload of $$ to throw at pinball
    3) Spooky, American Pinball, Homepin, JJP etc. It's NOT unreasonable to think someone else can produce pinball machines
    4) I can't argue with the ego and narcissism of Robert

    Whether they can make great pinball machines remains to be seen, doesn't it? THAT is what we know right now along with the above.

    Not a DIME has or will be asked for just like Stern, until the game is out and ready to ship.

    Again, if pigs had wings they could fly......

    Quoted from J85M:

    The simple option is when DP show the 5 or so games they say they have designed and will be showing at the 5 days of Deeproat or whatever it’s callee, simply vote with your wallet and disregard Jpops game completely!
    Plenty of good guys at DP who are simply trying to make a living and provide for their families who don’t deserve to be painted with the same brush as Jflop.

    Big thumbs up

    Whatever happens it’s a good thing DR is providing jobs for good pinball people
