    Join April Fools Jonathan Joosten from PinballMagazine and Martin Ayub from Pinball News as they bring you up-to-date with all the key events from the world of pinball throughout March.

    There’s almost a sense of déjà vu as Jersey Jack Pinball's Guns N' Roses picks up a bunch of awards, Spooky Pinball gets bigger premises and production of deeproot Pinball's Retro Atomic Zombie Adventureland is pushed further back.

    But there are plenty of new products and game reveals, upcoming game information, updated game code, current and upcoming pinball events and much, much more in the latest edition of their long-running PINcast. Plus a special guest appearance by ‘Gary’ - or is it?

    So Joe Balcer has landed at Homepin.

    Plot twist.

    Plot twist.

    Yeah, but how about the upcoming machine they are working on, any clues?

    I didn't listen to the whole thing because there was a lot of rambling about Homepin minutae I didn't care about.

    1. The guilao zombie ghost pin they were making next is, ironically, dead. They made one unit and it's in their Taiwan showroom. But the excuse for why they're not selling it is it uses mainland simplified Chinese and that would be frowned upon in Taiwan. (I was like - so CHANGE it, you made ONE, it's not like you have a warehouse of cabinets and playfields).

    2. They made a few really basic pins with Porsche themes for Porsche trade shows on a contract basis.

    3. The new pin with Balcer on board is a licensed property, but he didn't really give anything up about it. Joe has a few good pins, but a lot of duds, so it's anyone's guess if he's straightened out enough to deliver a good pin design once more. Allegedly.

    Balcer landing at Homepin is really the most surprising takeaway, IMO.
