Well I had the lucky opportunity to stand right next to Bowen for about an hour playing ACNC yesterday with my wife and friends..
I think the lighting is just fine... and I don't like dark playfields.. the main issue was the reflection from the large circular chandelier lights right above the pf..
The game is fun and got a basic understanding of the game.. the animations and coding are all ready very mature..
play field art/colors/comic book style animations are awesome..
Some shots feel tight at first.. but really they get better quickly.. this isn't a game you just bang the ball around.. concentrate a little more on grabbing/aiming/shooting for what you want to hit next..
There are LOTS of shots.. even the upper flay field has a ton to do.. I usually hate upper pf's.. but on this game they're great!.. lock a ball, hit the guillotine shot.. shoot the vampire..
You can steal other players locked balls on this game.. cool!
Spoke with the animator.. most assets are in place on game but they still have a few additions/fine tune ups to still show up..
Stick with the butter cabs!
Anyone thinking of selling/getting inpatient with getting their game... I say wait and take delivery!.. Kate and Charlie said they're quickly getting up to 20-25 games per week on average.. I'm number 178 so that means about late June delivery (counting the almost 50 done).. I'll wait!
