Quoted from rotordave:

New Zealand's biggest brewer, Lion Breweries, heard of the famous Iceman-RD wager and have created a special beer to prematurely celebrate our victory (cough...) Us kiwis take a wager seriously!
Check it out! A nice fresh tasting beer it is too.

Applejuice thank you for posting these videos.

Quoted from dgarrett:

The you need software, boards (all custom from what I know), playfield printing, art iterations with Jeremy, plus you'd need to add on assembly labor.

Don't forget media assets for the game as well. Everyone tends to forget that a game with a LCD will need animation for it.

Quoted from Linolium:

That quality of graphics doesn't take millions or years anymore. Just say'n. Frankly, the way lcd/led video screens are used in all pins these days disgusts me.

That is true but it also costs a lot more to get it done right.

It is good news to hear that MG may see the light of day and going to the owners who had invested into John may finally be made whole.

Quoted from zombieyeti:

As of today I've heard NOTHING about John making good on that. I know at least 3 others in the same boat. I hate to break the bad news but with that in mind, I can assure you RAZA and AIW will NOT have my hand to finish the art as a result.

But with what Zombieyeti said. There are a lot of burnt bridges to get these owners their games, and to the venders that have nothing to show for it but their desire to help a designer fulfill his dream of making his game in good faith are now left with nothing for their efforts. AGAIN if it was not for these people you all would not be getting a MG.

I am also one of those people that have been involved with helping John create his vision. I feel most of us have kept quiet because at the end of the day we all wanted this to work out for the buyers, John and the venders. But its beginning to become very clear it will be the people who have swooped in at the end that will benefit from the long, tough around the clock work of these venders.

Again, I'm happy to see the game coming out but it truly saddens me to know that there are people that have worked on this project that are very talent individuals that have been kick to the side, burnt from their experience and did it all to help John to live his dream.

Quoted from ChrisVW:

Who are you referring to?

Honestly I don't know but do you really think John has been working alone since Bill's involvement?

Will we ever know the truth behind all of this? Time will tell. But I am greatful to have finally meet some of my follow pinballers that have worked on these games.
