    UKPinFest - 24th, 25th & 26th August 2018

    I'm proud to announce that UKPinFest will be bringing back the UK's only dedicated pinball event after the loss of the UKPinballParty. The event is sorely missed by the UK and Europe pinheads.

    The event will be held in the same location, Mercure Hotel and Spa in Daventry.

    Some exciting machine announcements to make very soon!

    From the team that brought you The Matrix, Kill Bill will make it's European debut at UKPinfest

    Kill Bill – The Whole Bloody Pinball Affair

    Kill Bill is a custom pinball machine made by Pinnovating, running on the P-ROC system with a theme based on the legendary Quentin Tarantino movie by the same title. The P-ROC system is a hardware system to allow you to make your own software. Kill Bill is based on a Bally World Cup Soccer 94, but it’s playfield lay-out has been changed on at least 10 different points. Besides the playfield changes, the visuals are running on a 27″ HD-screen supported by a classic Dot-Matrix screen as well.

    It took almost four years to complete the game. Over 2,000 hours were spent on seeing Beatrix Kiddo waking up from her coma, to take revenge once again on her Death List Five former Deadly Viper Assassination Squad members, only now in the form of a mad murdering Pinball Machine. This is the 3rd title by Pinnovating after the Demolion Man on Steroids and The Matrix. All programming , sound FX, soundtrack and visuals are once again done by Pinnovating’s own Mr. Byte, while the handcrafted artwork is done by professional airbrush artist Mr. Ink.

    Experience how Kill Bill inspired this game and turned it into a roaring rampage of revenge. What does it take to convert a friendly game of soccer into a machine to kill for? Find out at the UK Pinfest 2018, Friday, 24th August 2018 till Sunday, 26th August 2018 at Mercure Daventry Court Hotel and Spa, Daventry, England.

    Please note, the machine is still in development. Artwork is still to be applied to the machine.

    Small detail, but to go one up over the other brands, in Kill Bill a 28” screen was used, because bigger is better when showing this much blood

    Excellent news, congratulations on organising your show. I hope you'll get a lot of visitors.
    I'm amazed your posts here hardly get any reactions - are all the UK players on other forums ?

    Congratulations on getting the show together and wishing you only the best in all areas of pinball!

    Cheers! (wish there was a beer toasting smiley)

    Yeah this is brilliant news and the venue is great, glad to have this back thanks to Phil and others as Daventry was the first place I was able to take my son as soon as he was old enough to stand and press the flipper buttons, he had a great time but we haven’t had a large scale show since it ended.

    Most of the UK pinheads use pinballinfo.com
