Pretty cool looking game, a bit like the pinball circus machine in Vegas.

That Cannon multiball release would be so cool in an actual game!
Also wanted to add that these OLED TV’s look incredible. They look 3D to me the picture is so good.
Spectacular. It had been a long time since a pinball did not attract my attention, although it has to be a computer animation (of such extraordinary quality that it seems real). The problem is what would cost a real pinball similar to that, with the detail and quality that simulates the design by computer.
The only thing that needs to be modified, for real pinball, is how the cannon shoots the balls, or it will end up damaging the playfield in a short time.
The central wheel, reminds the rototarget of the King of Diamonds.
I liked this type of target that shows with a bar of leds, with what force was hit. There are some original ideas in this design, reminiscent of the glorious years of Bally/Williams, when each machine brought new ideas. Now unfortunately almost everything that is done is the same, simply by changing the graphic design of the playfield, nothing new comes out.
Agreed, there is some great innovation here, it would be fun to see this built in real life. I really like the look of the animals/toys - like antique tin toys.
Who could build it? JJP gave up trying to get three spinning disks correct LOL
If someone could build it would be a great Pinside Pinball, something we could all invest in to get built and share in the profits.
Making the design real, would be very laborious, but today easier than before, thanks to computer design programs.
The ramps can be designed with Solidworks, and manufactured locally or in Chinese manufacturers. The dolls, the wheel and other parts, using Blender (may be also with AutoCad), printed with a 3D printer, to take out molds and manufacture with polyester resin. The most complicated thing is to paint those pieces later, because it seems all very handcrafted, I only think of using vinyl stencils, and airbrush.
The design of the playfield is quite simple, it does not have complicated drawings, although those details in gold and silver can be expensive. It can be designed with CorelDraw and printed on vinyl with a plotter that allows metallic inks.
We do not see any DMD, much better, this machine would fit an electromechanical score marker, from before, much more beautiful than a display.
The theme is striking, and does not require licenses, such as machines based on movies or musical groups.
The circus, the amusement parks and Christmas, are themes that can be used to design pinballs, without the need to pay for licenses, and are sure to attract much more than pinball based on licenses.
Electronics is the simplest thing for those of us who dedicate ourselves to that professionally.
The only thing that looks complex is the mechanism of ramps under the playfield to direct the ball to the three channels that are used to store the multiball with the cannon. To not be a mechanism that is going to see, it is too complicated and will not look like it deserves.
A view of the complete pinball. Although this design seems somewhat different, there is no lion, and instead of three tigers there are three seals.
There are some features of the design that can not be seen on action in the video, for example under the three tigers there is a small ramp, also below there are three arches, through which the ball will surely come from some ramp. There is a third ramp that goes to the right slingshot that does not appear on action in the video. The shot of the cannon, does not fit with the design, can shoot to the left, difficult to do it to the center, and practically impossible to do it to the right side of the playfield.
It seems that the green ramp through which the ball is shot at the playfield, can have between two and three directions on the playfield.
