As I type this up, there are four 4 guys in Portland , Oregon , working hard to finalize and set up “cottonmouth”, our east coast show stopper!
Dennis Vandepas, the man behind the concept of the game, travelled down to pdxmonkey” ( John Gimera, who is the builder and custodian of O-ren) last week, to light up the game with software , that John and his tech buddy DJ, have been working on the last few months, with me making playfield and parts to keep them going.
Yesterday “burningman” (Don Kraper) flew in from Virginia , to help things along, performing his decal application and cab skills. Don is building (and be custodian off Budd, aka Sidewinder , for the east coast show crowd.
I myself (Geert) was not able to make it down to the golden state show, May is the mother off months in my line of work. Cant have it all .. i built my Whitewood( Black Mamba) and this will be present at european venues.
When things settle down, later this Year our snake charmer Dennis and myself will assemble his own final “Bill” so he can finally discard his wcs branded proto after 4 years
Game is an extensively modified and rethemed World Cup soccer , featuring a big 28 inch lcd, while keeping the dmd on board. New shots. Scoops, wireforms, extra flipper, captive ball, magnets, the works..
Software, sfx, editing, lighting is what you can expect from 4 years of program work.
If I may say so myself, it’ll blow you away!
So if you can, Go check it out at the golden state show this weekend.
