Just wanted to let you all know that I also got the mail from the new Heighway. I did not request a refund so the rumor of them only reaching out to people who asked for a refund is total nonsense.

I for one am happy that Andrew has taken these steps. He could also just have let it die, but he did not.

Only way to end this drama is just not to pre-order anymore and for certain do not send money before machines are ready to ship. This may mean that there will not be a new pinball manufacturer anymore, but I think it is also in the intrest of the manufacturer-to-be because they cannot spend money before they deliver machines that make money for them. Then a pinball manufacturer has to finance his business like almost every other business does. The way it is now is just like a private Kickstarter, no guarantees and no way of knowing what is going on.

Quoted from oyvindmo:

Not nonsense. There are two different emails: one to those who requested a refund, and a different one to those who didn't.

Ok I did not know this. I got the feeling the crowd here thought that only people that asked for a refund were being approached by Heighway, which is not the case.

Quoted from ezeltmann:

Do the new investors plan on communicating on this thread? I have sent my private email to the new investors, but i would like everyone to hear what is going on with this game and the plans for improving the company.
Anyone get a response to their concerns via email?

No reply yet on my mail back to HP. But I guess they are getting a LOT of mails right now. My question had nothing to do with the things they already explained in the mail I got. My personal opinion is to give these guys some time to get settled and to organise things.

They cannot do that if they are flooded with mails to answer. Only thing that will happen is that people here will go on saying: see, still no reaction on my mails and back we go to the negative. I feel it is not my place to ask about details what they intend to do. I also not do this when I buy something else like furniture. That normally also takes some weeks/months and I am not going to ask the seller how they intend to organise their operation so to get me my purchase.

That being said I also am not happy about this and want to know as much as the other guy with a lot of money at stake. I just try to imagine what it would be like for me in that situation, trying to get everything sorted for everyone - with the help of my money - and being flooded with mails, be it positive or negative. The fact they are doing this is something special as been said many times before, there are a lot of other ways to make money much easier than becoming involved in pinball manufacturing. Takes a special kind of guy to do it. The fact they are willing to do this tells me they are not only in it to make a quick profit.

Frankly, I'd outsource it to ARA, but that's just me...

That one made me lol, thanks !!

Quoted from HighProtein:

Seriously though in a way, seriously, they have produced more TBL than Heighway has made ALIEN games...

Sad but true, but nonetheless the prospect of HP looks better than that of DP, also sadly enough.

Quoted from nman:

Anyone else get a letter from MB Insolvency today?

I think everyone on that list got the mail. Actually I would have thought there would be more consumer creditors.

#1480 1 year ago

Maybe be a little carefull with the spreading of this data. All of the creditors addresses are in the document and in the light of privacy it might be not wise to make it too public.
