Quoted from Aurich:
As someone who's been advocating for years for modern takes on classic solid state style games I wish this was something actually interesting to me, I want the idea to succeed and maybe grow into something more. Hopefully it's at least fun, I have zero interest in this though.
Actually, I take that back, I'd like to see how that top orbit magnet works, that's the one thing that has me curious.
I could see Stern face palming themselves at this post. Zero interest? It seems like it's pretty close to what you've been advocating, at least close enough to warrant some level of interest. All we do know about the pin is that it's probably going to be a modern take on a classic solid state game along with rumors that it's going to be expensive.
I get that most hipster pinheads would rather see Sea Witch 2 -- but a Beatles theme does seem to fit fairly well with pins of that era. So if it's a Sea Witch with deeper code and a Beatles theme there is zero interest? Just seems like a lot of over the top reactions to this pin. I'm guessing it's a combination of an oddly slow paced video,Joe K's personality rubbing people the wrong way on the podcast and the price rumors.
If it is $7500 and is a fun/deep version of Sea Witch, I can see it selling fine. Too rich for me, but hardly a sign of the coming pinball apocalypse.
