    Quoted from Roostking:

    I'm not so concerned they hired jpoop per se, although that is a head scratcher. The hyperbole and arrogance was my first warning signs that DR didn't know what they were getting into in general, then saying they were going to debut 5 games, at once, in a year. Ya... And here we are. But, they didn't take pre orders, so whatever. Hope the pull it together, competition is good!

    Boy you said it all in one place there. I'm actually shocked there are some people still shocked. This whole thing smelled bad from the beginning. I do hope they get it together, but the whole thing reeks of inexperience and putting on a big show (er, big talk) to distract from the fact that they arent actually producing anything. (Yet?)

    Patience is a virtue folks. Not all goals are met. They had a big goal, realized they weren’t going to hit it, and then made a clear announcement to everyone about the delay. Just wait. Whether it’s May, or September of 2019 or possibly even January of 2020, once you see what they are offering and bringing to the table, it will be well worth the wait.

    I'm honestly surprised no one punched out JPop at the show he attended recently.

    But did someone get a good picture of his back?

    TL;DR...
    People keep saying, “wait till you see what they are doing...” ok, with all the here-say and rumor that gets tossed around in the pinworld, and the only inkling of what people think might be coming is virtual reality pinball? How about virtual alternate reality?! People on here have already said that VR pinball is a nonstarter with most pin heads, so why keep beating this dead horse? What I would like to see from DR is some form of accelerated developement pipeline or process or automation that makes the idea go from the designers brain to finished product with the least amount of rework and redesign... Not sure DR is going to pull that off and use it to produce 5 machines “on demand” which is what I am expecting they are working on... a generic assembly line that is dynamic and can do multiple titles all at the same time. More than likely some form of removing a lot of the manual labor in favor of automation, or in favor of a totally different manufacturing process. If mums the word, and JPop is the key, just what paradigm shifting process are they working on? Sounds a lot like voodoo magic and smoke and mirrors without anything other than a friendly Trumpian “We’ll just have to wait and see...” as our reassurance they are going to grab the pin world by the pinballs. I wish them luck.

    Ego + burning cash = DOA.

    Wow.

    Interesting that he does not show employment at deeproot on Linkedin.

    Deep Root is probably embarrassed. We all know they have the highest standards for their "colorful" staff.

    He probably was never an employee - he would have been a contractor, like how a lot of the designers appear to be nowadays. Lawlor may be an exception -
