It is our pleasure to introduce Silver Castle Pinball, with whom we are collaborating to make physical Pro Pinball: Timeshock! pinball machines a reality! More information about this very exciting development to follow soon…
Within the next couple of weeks our game will officially be announced in a featured full size article on pinballnews.com
In addition we have compiled a list of answers to some of the questions we received via Pinside/Facebook and e-mail.
- What’s the fuzz
We’re building Timeshock!.
Pro Pinball: Timeshock! is a PC pinball simulation released in 1997 and has since sold millions of copies around the world. Despite its age, it’s still seen as one of the most realistic pinball simulators ever made. It is praised for its excellent gameplay and deep rule set. Currently an HD version of the PC game is in development under the name “Timeshock! The ULTRA Edition”.
- There are so many new games announced these days. Why is this any different?
As far as we know, this will be the first time a physical pinball is based upon a PC pinball simulation. The layout and ruleset have proven itself to be fun and exciting and the theme has stood the test of time. We think the game is simply awesome!
- Do you own the license to build this game?
Like Ade has mentioned a few posts back: yes, we do.
- How are the original game creators involved in this?
We are working with almost the entire team that developed the original game, to create the most authentic experience possible.
- Are you just starting with this?
No, we have been working under the radar for over a year now. A flipping whitewood is up and running
- Is this another five year wait?
We plan to be production ready by summer 2015.
- What about deposits and pre-orders ?
Regardless of whatever payment plans we will offer when the time comes, we will always offer the option to only pay in full when the machine is production ready and parts sourcing/assembly begins.
