Quoted from kaneda:

these guys have been nothing but transparent with the build, but now that we are at the finish line, it's all radio silence...what gives? Show the game! Share a video. You have 250 people spending $5,000...you could show them what they are getting before they commit. This whole buy on blind faith thing is really annoying and is killing this hobby.

Relax, I want a video as much as the next guy. But Kevin owes us nothing. He collected a small deposit to hold our place in the project, that's it. It will happen, we will see the pics and videos when they are ready. Bitching about it doesn't make it better.

I hope Kevin and everyone involved is satisfied and the project is a success and the company thrives etc.. But this is building a pinball that while not by a professional manufacturer is striving to be on par with Stern (etc..).

There is more to this job than we can understand, they are not just building a one off machine for their own enjoyment, they are trying to make it a smooth, polished product. The last thing I want to do is to pressure them or ask for a rush job. I'd gladly wait another year if that's what it take's.

I agree. Just would love a video of the machine they are saying is final. That's all. Not too much to ask.

Quoted from kaneda:

When did you get on the wait list, and when did you get on the buy list?

I snapped my fingers and it just happened. Don't worry, once Kaneda owns the game, value will double. Just wait.

I agree, that this radio silence is odd, even a word from Kevin would be nice to hear. Just hi we are still alive, here's a better picture would be nice.

I just think, this project is more difficult that expected. Making a prototype is one thing, making a gold proof machine is another thing all together.

It's not like a piece of software that can be patched with future updates, I am sure Kevin is trying to cross every T and dot every i.

Likely there is a reason for the silence, most likely they are working very hard 'crunch time' as they say.

There was this thread, although no one mentioned in it that you aren't allowed to sell spots. I don't particularly care but plenty of people might.

No, it's shit like this that's "killing the hobby", not Skit-b taking their time to build a quality machine.

You have gotten word and evidence of the game progressing from team members of the project (Ted and Matt), WTH more do some people thing they are gonna get? Pretty sure Kevin has been in contact with the guys that are going to be in the first build allotment in April. If you are not in the first 10 games you will likely get plenty of time to see real life games and hear all the fine details well before you are even asked for anything more $$$wise.

Sad thing is it has become way more evident to me that lots of guys are in only for the investment. Very sad.

Here is an excellent short film that may happen to have a Predator or two (thread tie-in):

I'd prefer kevin to be assembling my machine, rather than getting on here to waste time answering stupid questions about when the machines will be assembled.

I would prefer he takes 60 seconds to come on here and tell us he's assembling your machine, and take the remaining 23 hours and 59 minutes to build it.

Just excited to see how it turns out...that's all. I'm relaxed.
