    These guys have been flying under the radar for quite some time and since the Art reveal in June we haven't heard anything about them. Was wodnering if some folks had some info to share?

    I posted on their FB less than a week ago looking for updates. I have not yet received a reply.

    I would like some new info as well. What we have seen so far looks amazing and the artwork is absolutely gorgeous. Hopefully they will be able to get everything to work and make it feel like the game and we will have an absolute winner. The ruleset is one of the best in pinball too, I'd say its on par with the deep Keefer games like LOTR, TSPP and WOZ.

    But this complete lack of news is very disconcerting.

    I hope we hear some news on this as well love the virtual table.

    I'm sure they are hard at work, there's a lot to see if you search the web.

    I think they're smart for not posting too much until it's perfect, making pinball is hard as we all know. So maybe they are working out the development. And they are also working hard to get all of the digital versions out as well.

    It's a model we have not seen yet... Digital before physical, maybe silver castle has a good plan in place with this method

    i was told, the new prototype playfield is finished and clearcoated.
    They are waiting for some parts to arrive and then the next prototype game will be assembled.
    so, the project seems to be still alive.

    Timeshock seems to have disappeared into a time vortex into which there is no escape

    #12 6 months ago

    Not surprised, after having followed their Facebook for more than two years.

    Spent the time shock savings on a sw le last August. Best decision ever!

    It would be interesting to at least see a prototype, of Timeshock. Possibly getting the wiring correct to match the play of the video game, could be tough.

    #14 6 months ago

    Pinball is hard... these guys are doing all of this on their spare time, just restoring a game takes a lot of time, much less time than building one from scratch... some people or companies are just slower, it’s not their top priority. Life gets in the way. No worries, it will come.

    Quoted from Darcy:

    It would be interesting to at least see a prototype, of Timeshock. That moving time machine part that drops below the playfield would be really hard to execute to match the play of the video game.

    That's not Timeshock - that's Fantastic Journey.

    Everybody on the internet seems to be off chasing whatever machine is flavor of the day. I have money locked and loaded for Timeshock and I keep a good thought for those struggling to make this a reality.

    #17 6 months ago

    Money saved as well here for TimeShock.

    Problem is, even if they finally sort all the mechs and electronics, I suspect they'll have to rethink the display. That will take time and money.

    Wasn't it going to be a bog standard red / orange dot DMD with the game's original dots?

    The goalposts have moved pretty significantly since they first started this project or thought about it.

    #19 6 months ago

    Since they went ahead and created an updated backglass (to go along with the side art), why not color in the dots as well?

    Spoke to Pieter on the DPO last november, they are still working on it. Just not as fast as we would all hope, but as stated, they all have daytime jobs as well.

    What's the problem with having an old school DMD?

    Depends on the price of the game.

    #22 5 months ago

    Any updates on the happenings of TimeShock?

    #23 5 months ago

    Still being worked on.

    Their light board approach is certainly different.

    Not sure how much money they'll save on PCBs when I'd assume it'll take longer to wire and assemble .... but on the plus side, failed light boards should cost a pittance to replace.
