As a foolish RAZA buyer ($4,750)... I'll be watching this unfold daily.
As a Pinball Hobbyist / enthusiast of dozens of awesome pinball games, for 25+ years (since 1992), I've never been to Texas Pinball Festival.
As "Buyer" of JPop's RAZA, many years ago (in at $4,750)... This year, I booked a flight and a hotel room, for the "Big 5 Reveal". I'm real bummed to hear about the delayed reveal. Hopefully, there will be something to share with us, as a pinball community at that festival.
This is encouraging news... I'm in (was) on RAZA at $4750, and signed the agreement from DR as well. Hope DR can come thru.
I rolled the dice and deiced to wait it out (agreement signed). I'm originally out $4,750, however, Robert & Co. have some cool things on the horizon.
So... I'm in on the the 2nd round.
When I see a run on this topic, I think: "OK" something good is coming down... At this point, nothing significant, it's like an emotional roller coaster: Up & Down.
I'm in at $4,750 and it's no secret (posted many times). I could have taken the $$$ offer, but choose not to. The option was get $$$ today (from offer 1 year ago), or ride it out.
I hope DR will come though and say "I told you so; look at the cool game(s) we have for you now", especially to those of use who stood tall from day one. I'm hoping that wasn't a short-sighted mistake on my part. I do hope DR will honor those of us, who feel he and their team, will come thru on such a toxic situation with JPop.
We will see.
Quoted from pin2d:
Hi all, as long as everything comes together tonight as planned (knock on wood), This Week in Pinball will be sharing images of the Retro Atomic Zombie Adventureland prototype machine tomorrow morning on TWIP. We'll also have interviews with Steven Bowden, John Popadiuk, and Robert Mueller.
"If" you care to share... why would you down vote this?
Yep... got DR email tonight. It's a classy offer indeed. I'm now going the TPF for sure and I'm in a the RAZA.
Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:
How many are still on board to receive their paid in full RAZA? Guessing about 50 people, maybe as high as 100?
I'm in... we (my son and I) are going to TPF for the first time. We've never been to that event. We are so excited to see what RAZA has to offer and learn more about what Deeproot's future titles are.
As an added bonus
DR has offered to fly us, lodge us and extend a weekend pass (subject to getting reimbursement), to those who were loyal and didn't accept the buy-back and took a game instead. We are very grateful for this offer, as like past years; we couldn't have gone to TPF
Did anyone else prepay for airplane tickets to Texas Pinball Fest, thru Deeproot's offer to Zidware's customers?
They said they would reimburse us... anyone get any reimbursement or notice?
