Edit: The Pinball Labs Kickstarter is LIVE!
I'm the developer of a new pinball simulator, editor and API called "Pinball Labs".
In addition to the virtual pinball community, I'm hoping to make Pinball Labs useful to homebrew enthusiasts by providing an interface to development frameworks and hardware controllers.
Ideally this would allow using Pinball Labs as a testing environment for research and development: Game play and controller logic could be inexpensively experimented with, in a modern software simulation, before committing resources to expensive parts, labor and materials.
Here's a quick video (downloadable demo links in the description.)
Here's a playlist showing progress made over the last couple of months.
I hope to launch a small Kickstarter soon to allow me to work on Pinball Labs full time. The Kickstarter preview page goes into more detail about the proposed features and timeline.
If Pinball Labs sounds interesting to you, I'd love to get permission to use images or video of your homebrew project in the Kickstarter.
I'd also love to hear what you think of the project!
