    When are these coming to market? Do they have a ball park release date?

    #52 2 years ago

    Will these machines be at the Allentown Show?

    #53 2 years ago

    I'm really hoping to pick up a zombie one too. Pitch and bats are pretty fun, easily gets the most play of any of my games.

    Lucky for you, you already own 2 perfect games that rate perfect 10s. No need to ever buy anything else.

    I was told late summer to early fall for expected production start date. Like all games expect a few delays and add a little to that. No money is due up front though so it doesn't really matter.

    Small update. We are still looking at late summer for production. Things are moving along nicely. We have a manufacturing partner, they are setting things up now. With the overwhelming response from the TPF and MGC, we found we need to spend our time getting it to production rather than taking it to more shows. That will come after it is rolling off the line. A proper announcement will be made when we're ready to go.
    You can follow some teasers on facebook. Gizmo Game Design.
    Thanks, and we'll be back with more info soon...

    Everything takes longer than you think it will. Persistents pays off. Pilot run has begun. First and second runs are sold out. Hoping to have available stock by end of year.

    I would like to see video, price and if sold in Australia through whom, PLEASE

    #76 1 year ago

    I would also like to see more information on this game. I think the family would enjoy, but its hard to tell when they essentially have zero marketing information about the machine....I video and details on the machine would be very helpful.

    #77 1 year ago

    I played this at Expo. Game played great except the bat was a little weak. They had the power turned down to make sure the prototype parts made it thru the show. I was told the bat strength is adjustable. I enjoyed playing the game. It has lots of campy humor. Great art.

    It looks like a fun entertaining game, but the company is doing a horrible job marketing the product. A simple 5 minute video would do wonders. They can't even upload new photos to their website....my concern is that their another fly by night company that doesn't have the resources to actually manufacture the games....maybe at this stage they've pre sold a few games so they don't really want any new orders? I guess time will tell

    First run is sold, which they are building now. Next run will be available early next year. Contact Valley-Dynamo for dist list. Gozmo Game Design will also be selling the games for home use at Gizmogamedesign.com

    I like the pool table feet used there under the rollers.

    #85 1 year ago

    Can’t someone at the IAAPA post a couple pics?

    #86 1 year ago

    looking great...

    who is building these?

    "It looks like a fun entertaining game, but the company is doing a horrible job marketing the product....my concern is that their another fly by night company that doesn't have the resources to actually manufacture the games...."

    The subsequent posts respond to these issues. Valley-Dynamo, a very well-established coin-op manufacturer with roots going back to 1928, is handling the manufacturing. Valley-Dynamo is responsible for marketing and has already taken full-page ads in RePlay and Play Meter, plus showing the game (both variants) at the IAAPA show. They're making a prudently cautious roll-out.

    Short gameplay video that I don’t think has been posted here previously

    #95 1 year ago

    Quoted from dirtbag66:
    "No DMD? No fourth pitch? No ability to steal bases? No card dispenser?"

    In fairness, we should note that Dennis was trying to stick to an old design. The game very closely resembles Williams Pinch Hitter of 1959, but with more pitch choices.

    Ive had many trips to Myrtle Beach playing the pitch and bats there. While I’d want to get the zombie version, I suspect the real baseball theme might hold up better (lack of call outs keeping the zombie theme going?) But my one gripe with the game is the lack of a bat on the lockdown bar. With it included, that’s when I become a buyer.

    Have they started shipping these machines? Just wondering what people thought

    #99 1 year ago

    I’m curious if they will be on the floor at TPF again this year. I would love to play them again.

    #100 1 year ago

    sure would be nice to know if their shipping the game, and how it plays?
