I always search web for info on this machine and it seems alot of info is kept under lock and key. Big secret? Dunno.

Not really a secret. The person who was doing all of the posting isn't involved with the project anymore. I painted the clown for the prototype they were building and I have no idea where the project is. I think the programming is coming along. I don't know details. I really want to see it come to life as well. Fulfill Python's dream!

#804 5 years ago

Last I saw the machine, the first full prototype was basically done and they were going to move on to a second prototype with lots of changes to deal with play issues, space, and mechanics. Won't go into detail of what was shared as I felt that was possibly privileged info and I happened to be in the right place at the right time. I like where it's headed though.

Does anyone know if the latest stuff will be at SFGE?

Was wondering the same thing myself.

Does anyone have any update on the progress of this or any news related at all?

#810 5 years ago

no news on their 3 facebook pages since February

#811 5 years ago
Quoted from VGC1612:

''Pinball Inc has commissioned the legendary pinball artist David Christensen to do the artwork for a pinball backglass. This is the pencil drawing he submitted to us this week. It is amazing that he is in his seventies and can still do such detailed work.'' Not know if its for their own gameroom or for a future project

why do I get the feeling of Nitro ground shaker or Voltan from this drawing?

#812 5 years ago

I'm quiet because there is no new information that I KNOW to be true.

#813 5 years ago


I'd settle for a juicy rumor.
Mike

#814 5 years ago

Last I heard about it was at the TPF and that things were moving along...

#815 5 years ago

Between this game and Pats new game, I am on edge. These are 2 that I and everyone else are patiently awaiting. Soon I hope!

Bump for an update

#817 5 years ago

for that kingpin backglass, is it supposed to be "folies" or "follies"? I thought that "folies" was the french spelling, but that would see out of place for chicago, no?

#818 5 years ago

Its probably a french cabaret folies mean ''crazy things'' Am i only one that want ASAP this Pinball Circus in his living room?

Well Ted,my update is I am still putting money aside for it in great hopes to get one. Expecting it to be north of $10K
Mike

#822 5 years ago

Probably not the answer you were lookin for but it made you smile

i was told much less than 9k. They are not making it to cash in. They are basically making it at cost, so more people can afford them.

#824 5 years ago

If you watch the videos and updates and look at the market rising,you will see it is gonna end up being at 10K or more.
Mike

#825 5 years ago

well talking with them over the years, I feel differently. I take talking to them in depth for many hours, talking with python for a long time, over internet videos.

#826 5 years ago

I am just hoping there is enough to go around and most of all that one ends up with me as I really like the design.I never played it tho,just watched videos.
Mike

#827 5 years ago

well the proto they bring to shows plays nothing like the actual ones. Definitely need to play one first, as it takes some getting used to when playing.

#828 5 years ago

Any specific differences you can share?
Mike

#829 5 years ago

the whole ramp setup, the snake, the position of the flippers, overall gameplay is different. Feels a lot different than the original prototypes. Which i've played for hours on end.

#830 5 years ago
Quoted from CaptainNeo:

Very jealous
Mike

#831 5 years ago
Quoted from Grizlyrig:

Mike

I have played both, and agree with CaptainNeo. However I can't say the new one plays worse, it just feels a little different. No way I can afford a 10k toy but really hope one of my friends can. (Looking at you pinball sanctum)

#832 5 years ago

Life is short,spend some money now because we're not gonna bury you with it.

#833 5 years ago

I played the one at the Pinball Museum in Vegas for a good hour or so a couple of months ago, and the idea of buying a NIB one with complete game code makes me as giddy as a 9 year-old on X-mas Eve!

A sort of legendary mystique has developed about the game which made for a momentarily surreal experience when I first walked up to it (particularly given the rather spartan environment in that building, and that it was just sitting there so unassumingly plopped down next to some modern Sterns - seems like it should have been placed on a rotating pedastal under spotlights with an attractive Asian model there to narrate the game's history and give playing tips ). The code was of course rudimentary, but the 3d layout and shots were lots of fun anyway, and will give the software developers a LOT to work with for the remake. The game is beautiful too, inside and out.

I know there have not been many updates, but there is something about the entire project which really makes me believe it's going to come to pass. It would be easy to lump this game in with other pie in the sky projects which have recently fleeced a lot of folks, but I get a very different vibe from these guys (and am building the funds in anticipation).

I'd really love any sort of update, pics, etc. Very excited about this one.

I am hoping the same this game is so much fun and cool! I am also optimistic that it will be offered for sale down the line. What a cool concept...if I was talented to make a homebrew pin this would be the style I would go for. I think it is so unique and has lots of possibilities!

Any update from Expo?

#838 5 years ago

Progress is still being made on the game. The plan to produce a batch of new prototypes and then proceed with a production run is still progressing. The production run games (if there is sufficient demand to justify it) will feature much improved gameplay over the original two prototypes and the new prototypes as the point is to test various layouts and features and roll the best concepts into the production games.

Oh heck, just pool your money with 2-3 like-minded nearby pinballers and have a timeshare contract - move it to a new co-owner's house every 3-4 months

#840 5 years ago

I am on the list for #7 and have heard nothing yet. I assume they are still on rev2 or 3

Info came so long ago its been partially forgotten. From what I remember there were 12 people that fronted for a game...then they would determine if it was worth going forward.

#843 5 years ago

Thank You Hooked for clearing that up.
Mike

#844 5 years ago

There were also a few game spots given away during different points of development. I won spot 7 to purchase prototype 7(during their seminar) at expo last year(2015). No money is yet to change hands until production is started for the game.

I tried to just donate money for this project with no expectations, never got a reply... Hands together for the great effort to this group and for getting it to this point, its not easy. Python Anghelo would have been proud. Was a great dream, looking forward to playing it again next time in vegas... love this game. Cheers!
