Quoted from ArcadeRaid:

There should be a Deeproot themed pinball machine where your score starts at 60 million and you try to blow your points as fast as possible. Let's brainstorm. What modes would you include?

Preorder hurryup and octomanufacturing multiball. Both modes burn points like you've never seen before.

Steals $60 million.
Is now selling pins to pay the bills.
What a fucking LOSER. Sad that this paper tiger was able to bully so many into silence.

Not sure "Bully" is the right term. He's a fat fu.. that couldn't fight his way out of wet paper bag without having a heart attack. He was throwing money around like he was Besos or Gates and the only reason I did not challenge his threats was because in no way did I want to throw good money away with bad. To be honest , It did bother me he didn't legally have the IP and I felt guilt for a long time for not challenging it, however I also knew he didn't care what or how much he would spend money on. As it turns out not his money! This guy was and still is a total piece of shit !

Just a side note on the nuclear energy hate... pressurized and boiling water reactors are fundamentally flawed and dirty because they were invented and operated to support the nuclear arms and weapons programs early on during the Manhattan project. Thorium based nuclear power, which does not support nuclear weapons manufacture, is a way safer and cleaner and even proven technology. If we really get serious about solving global warming, Thorium based nuclear energy will be what saves our bacon. Oh and RM is a scammer delux just to stay on topic a little.

I made the mistake of reading this. Just made me very angry.

I feel equally as angry. I can almost hear his condescending and self-indulgent voice reciting all of those statements. Makes my skin crawl.

Most of us expected yet another failed company. It's shocking how much of a SCAM it all was - evidenced by how he's instantly penniless after the SEC cuts him off.

No, IT just HAS to be inefficient and unpredictable wind and or sun. THEY won't have it any other way..

Is the 3rd wife an ex yet?

…just something else to add to the Schadenfreude

#26413 47 days ago

Haven't you heard? All science has been settled!

#26414 47 days ago

Are court proceeding "public domain"?
Given the amount of scams here... maybe we need to design a community pinball machine using outtakes and real-life scams as an example.
JPOP, Predator, Alien, and now DeepRott.
Maybe instead of point; you rake in the cash until either caught by a licensor or the SEC.
See if you can escape jail in the wizard mode.

I know this isn't a laughing matter - but something good has got to come from this. :S

#26415 47 days ago

I think it’s a bit different when considering the massive scale of fraud and theft here. Robert stole/lost several times more than Heighway, JPop (the first time), Skit B, Dutch, etc combined. This is the SEC trying to nail a guy to the wall. I think that’s why we’re seeing a lot more activity.

All a rogues gallery of failures, conmen, incompetents and crooks - Robert/Deeproot probably the worst actor of the bunch. He's kind of the Al Capone of the pinball criminals.

Not really... Al Capone actually delivered product.

Yes, true, but did you consider there’s probably nothing in RMs safe either (well … except IOUs) ?

Capone and Deeproot? Does that mean that there's going to be a vault edition?

There are 2 RAZA protos. That's it. Done.

Let Ice and the rest of the sycophants fight over them when the government auction tries to claw back 1% of what Robert stole to return to the victims.

Ironically, the government will spend more pursuing this case than they will recover.

Remember the good old days when there was nearly too much deeproot nonsense to keep up with? I miss them.

Anyway, minorest of minor updates: many deeproot folks have finally been updating their linkedins to officially call it a day. The most recognizable names among them are Quinn Johnson and Jon Norris. Quinn added an end date for the deeproot entry. Jon erased disappeared that part like a magical jpop poof. One facebook too. Probably a good idea.

Are these people on some sort of NDA or are they allowed to speak out at this point? I might actually listen to one of the more respectable pinball podcasts to hear some of the bigger names from DR interviewed and speaking truthfully about what went on behind the scenes.

Everyone at DeepRoot was NDA'd up the colon. NDA's just to VISIT or apply!

When they expire probably varies by employee. Might be another year before we get any real (public) dirt.

Can a NDA even be enforced if the company is belly up? Maybe the IP could be still covered under NDA if it's an asset, but who wants it?

Not being sarcastic, just don't know.

Regardless of whether RM is belly up or down, I doubt he’ll be prosecuting NDAs. He doesn’t have the means to pay his bills without ill gotten money.

#26435 42 days ago

Speaking of NDA's, Jpooper told me a story about working on Episode One pinball.

He said that to goto Skywalker Ranch, and look at the stuff regarding the movie to make the pin, you signed an NDA with the penalty being forfeiture of YOUR HOUSE!

Seems extreme but effective. Maybe that's where his love affair with NDA's began?

This is basically true. They didn't say your house specifically, but if there were any leaks, and they could prove they came from you, and they felt that it impacted their revenues in any way, they could personally come after you for all of it. So if they made a couple of hundred million less revenue worldwide because of your leak, your house would be the least of your worries. And that's how serious they were about it - to read the script, you had to do it at Skywalker Ranch, with a physical copy they handed you and took back, and no pictures allowed. You could take notes.

The bigger issue is the culture of fear. Yeah, I'm certain there are no legal risks, but if everyone's still afraid they're not going to spill anything.

"well you see your honor, I kept getting checks and my starbucks app refilled with money, so I kept sketching new pinball layouts. I had no idea Robert was stealing that money. I once stole a million dollars in pre-order money, but I had no idea you could steal 60 million. Robert is my idol."

Nah they just forgot to renew NBD. Still no word from deeproot leadership that they've abandoned production.

My name is Robert Mueller, king of kings;
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!

Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

I did see the domains are still registered. Didn't check host. Hope you're right! When the sites finally come down, the world will be diminished for the fun to laugh at stupidity.
