Nice informative posts, and fantastic gameroom!
Quoted from Aurich:
Look, just building a pinball, at all, is a ton of work. You don't have to buy it, I'm not in the least interested in this title myself, but I applaud the effort. Good job shipping even a single game. It's more than some companies have managed!
I'll be honest, nothing here looks particularly interesting to me. It's like a game that got built because it could be, not because someone was particularly inspired by anything. There are a lot of pins already, I kinda feel like if you're gonna do all that work you should at least try something new somewhere. But hey, I didn't put in the sweat and they did, so who the hell am I to say how they should do it?
In 2019 my opinion is if you want to get people excited you need to have at the very least a gimmick, if not an entirely different approach. Getting some good art is cool, but if the physical game doesn't have a toy or something to make you want to hit start then you're gonna struggle to get people's attention now. I think you're seeing that with the somewhat tepid response this game has generated. Maybe the code and media package will turn it around.
I say good luck. It's good to be honest, criticism is fair, but I don't see any point in not wishing them well too.
I agree with what you've stated here. I think pulling off manufacturing is really damn impressive, and the build quality looks solid from afar! I still don't get Dirty Donny's art. I'm glad he has work, but man....it seems more like high school doodles than slick linework.
I wish Jack Davis had gotten into game art 30 years ago.
I really want to check this out in person!

Wes, you will absolutely get the opportunity as we have paid in full for Cosmic Carnival for Helicon Brewing. If it holds up, I don't even care about the earnings, this will be at Starport and our private collection at Voodoo Brewing in Homestead.
Let's see how it goes. Good luck Suncoast.
Looking forward to it Chris! Thanks again, as always, for getting the latest and greatest, out on your routes...ASAP!
