I was just curious what made haggis decide to remake Fathom? Is the game a personal favorite of his or what was the motivating factor behind this particular title? If anyone knows.

#4905 44 days ago

This game is beautiful. I'm glad you folks are starting to get your games.

Are you trying to stop the buzz kill of Haggis going out of business??

The classic Bally (and Stern) was a really great era of pinball machines that lots of collectors really love. Of those, Fathom is possibly the most desirable and the prices of originals are going through the roof. Aside from that its been mentioned that not a lot of Fathoms ever made it down to Australia.

#4908 44 days ago

I’m curious if AU will be getting more than usual. I’d always reckoned that US got ~50% of most pinball games and rest of the world got the other 50% (+/- a bit). But with this being an Australian company I was thinking less would make it to the US

yep i know ....

In the early days of 'Haggis' Damian was contacted by a custom pinball restorer here (a huge classic bally fan) about supplying their paintwork/artwork/printing/cabinets etc.

he taught a still "very new to pinball" Damian about these "old" bally machines, explained why he believed them to be the golden era and suggested there would be a market to remake these classics…

While working on Celts and developing fathom he setup a "bally" room with the machine options for the 5 series to show the rest of the haggis team so they could all be played and options compared

It will be interesting to see haggis future offerings now they're no longer working together and dont have the same experience backing them for the others in the series.

Yeppers, next one will be harder without him. They'll get there though.

Quoted from John_I:

The classic Bally (and Stern) was a really great era of pinball machines that lots of collectors really love. Of those, Fathom is possibly the most desirable and the prices of originals are going through the roof.

I had a very nice Bally Fathom that was bolted to my floor for several years. It held its own in a game room of high end collectable games including NIB Big Bang Bar, HEP restored games and one of the original 40, Big Lebowski's.
My much older Fathom handily punched above it's weight class.

I was getting ready to ship my Fathom to Christopher Hutchins of HEP for a complete restoration when I found out about the Haggis remake.
I had no need to advertise selling as I had local friends waiting to buy my Fathom and for top dollar.

Fathom is not a game for everyone, especially newbies that only want toys. But for myself and many other people, its a beauty with re-playable magic.

Agreed. Fathom is a special game.
A few of my friends that are purists don’t understand why I would buy a remake of an original game that is already considered perfection when it was originally released. But I feel Damian has put something special together with the new Fathom and additional code that I can’t wait to try out.

Oh I wonder if they've reproduced those little metal "bell" standoffs Fathom uses for those, those always used to be unobtainium. It's been a while since I've restored an 80's Bally, so maybe they are reproduced, but that'd be cool to have a source for those.

Coincidence that the first reproduction playfield was Fathom?

I've yet to hear of a bolted to the floor game that didn't get sold. Everyone should really stop going to the trouble of doing that.

Completely agree. Its just an expression and has been the kiss of death for me saying it in the past.

Good reply my friend. (and funny)

It truly is the kiss of death. I have a couple of friends that say that a lot and which ever game it is always is gone with in a year.

Looks like my Fathom will arrive next Thursday. Haggis is slowly but surely getting them out the door.

#4925 42 days ago

After playing the Fathom mermaid for the about a week.
Pros: It's beautiful. The playfield is indestructible. The flippers have the classic Bally feel to them. Classic mode is great. Revisited is equally great.
Cons: Some random error code pops up on the display. Does not affect game play. I am sure future code updates will fix this.

Overall I am extremely pleased with the quality of the build and the game play. Having both sets of code is almost like owning two machines. They are that different. This machine will be bolted to the floor.

Who did you order from and how long ago did you remit payment in full?

Through Haggis, when payment was requested

Congrats on your game and thanks for the feedback. That game is already sold though, you just don't know it yet. The bolted to the floor kiss of death.

I wasn't sure about them, but always wanted the to succeed. I would love to play one of these one day for sure, and Celts.

Any plans to do a HD/4K video of the machine and gameplay?

#4931 41 days ago

Seems like there is more than a few machines out there now, super keen to see any more pictures or a gameplay video!

An even bigger story there with more chapters.
I guess the polite way to put it would be a difference in how things should be done.

Given everything that had happened at Haggis in the last year I'm honestly surprised that machines are actually going out.
Very happy for the customers.

Sounds like you personally know this person.

I'm very keen to see who designs the next game.

Any new news? How are the current owners enjoying their machines? Would love to know more about the 2.0 code?

Bruce and Zac give their first impressions of the Fathom remake that was recently delivered to the Rochester Pinball Collective in the latest episode of Slam Tilt.

It's a little ways into the episode, but nice to hear some feedback about the game, code, and Haggis' build quality.

Revisited code is great. The game build quality is amazing. It’s a tuff game for an average player. It has the one more game vibe going. I keep going back to it over and over. I going to put larger rubber on the post in the out lanes. It is tuff to save the ball. That’s just me though.

#4937 36 days ago

My wife and I took a ride out to Rochester so we could play the haggis games. She's now sold that I made a good buy with getting in on the Mermaid Fathom. She also is now interested in a Celts. Go figure.
They have a lot of great games there, but Fathom kept our attention for 75% of the time there.

Just curious, what are the build times being said in the email for full payment for the people getting their invoice now or in the last couple of weeks?

#4943 34 days ago
Quoted from Boof-Ed:

Build times of 8 weeks give or take after receiving invoice and payment.

I believe the series ticket holders would be completed and on to next group in a few weeks.

This isn’t the case. I’m currently at 15 weeks since full payment. I was wondering if they are still giving that time frame as it’s very misleading.

#4946 34 days ago

They start working on mine late next week!! Wahoo!!

Yep.

#4949 34 days ago

That means they are probably averaging 1 a week which isn't great for those at the tail end of the queue.

My mate Dave is easy that too (kyakingoz). It's a worry. He's not a series ticket holder either.
