Thank you Jersey Jack Pinball...
For honoring the pinball artform by always shooting for the stars.
For trying to make the best games first and trusting that the profits will follow (instead of thinking of profits first).
For growing the industry by showing the world what pinball can be instead of just (only) trying to squeeze every dollar out of it for yourselves.
For respecting your customers through your commitment to do the very best you can do instead of stripping the hell out games to save costs.
For respecting your designers and letting their ideas shine instead of telling them the things they need to remove.
For your commitment to quality code, for not being OK with shipping with alpha or beta code that is not updated to 1.0 even a year after release.
For not releasing so many games per year that you can no longer meet the endless code update commitments you made for them.
For showing us early test versions of your games in order to get feedback and bulletproof hardware instead of relying on blind hype and hope to sell your games.
For stating as a company principle that every version you release plays exactly the same as any other so all players can experience the full game.
For honoring each license (and licensor) with your commitment to create the best game that could be made instead of just thinking your own bottom line.
For celebrating the artform of pinball through your commitment to mechanical theme integration - creating a thematic world in which the ball can come alive.
For having the courage to innovate by designing and building new mechanisms instead of playing it safe and rehashing old designs again and again.
For being an industry leader shining a light in new directions for the future of this great hobby.
To everyone at Jersey Jack Pinball, thank you.
