2020 was a year full of some pretty incredible challenges. Our hearts go out to everybody who endured personal loss or hardships along the way. Many of our lives are forever changed.
As the New Year's Eve shows reviewed the past year, what was most notable to us were not the tragedies but instead the many examples of people overcoming challenges and finding moments of success and joy. For many of us, pinball brings us joy. It's a hobby where it's fine to have varying opinions and to enjoy different things. It's also a hobby that's best enjoyed in the company of others. Pinball is a social game, and keeping pinball alive through a global pandemic was a paradoxically insignificant and incredibly important challenge.
Mandated stay-at-home orders and cancelled shows made it impossible to bring people together to celebrate pinball. At Multimorphic, we spent 2020 with our heads down, trying to make our products the best they could be and figuring out ways for people to get more enjoyment from their pinball machines. In the grand scheme of things, it's nothing. In the microcosm of pinball, it's a lot. It helped us stay sane, and we hope it helped many of you find new ways to smile and enjoy the hobby.
We're looking forward to a fantastic 2021, where we hope we're able to see many of you in person, enjoying pinball together again.
