    Gizmo Game Design
    I am sure most of you know that All Star Baseball and Zombie League All Stars pitch and bat games we designed were licensed to Valley-Dynamo. I believe the press release was posted here in a couple of threads.
    We revealed the games to a great response at TPF last year. Shortly after TPF we were contacted by V-D, as they had great interest in releasing a pitch and bat. They had actually begun some work on a game themselves.
    After much consideration we determined we would license our design to them as they are an existing, fully operating manufacturer of coin operated equipment. This would also allow us to focus on other game design projects.
    We continued to work with V-D to further develop the graphics and sound packages as they geared up for production.
    There have been a few delays along the way as to be expected. Games are now in production by V-D with most early units going to commercial outlets. The street earnings are being reported as very strong. The true head to head play being a big draw.
    Gizmo Game Design also has the ability to distribute games for the home market (no operator sales). When stock becomes available to us, we will post units for sale on our website.
    Valley-Dynamo will have games at TPF this year, so you can stop in, see their production units first hand and place an order.
    We realize now, we were lax in updating and communication as the process went along. Our apologies for that. It was a busy year and the finish line for this game was our main focus. We will do better on future projects. As Dennis likes to say "Turns out, pitch and bats are hard"
    Thank you,

    Good to hear things are going well on these games.

    In a sense, it's a mistake to classify these as "boutique" games. In pinball, we use "boutique" to characterize the manufacturer, but Valley-Dynamo is a big producer of both coin-op and home-model games, and they have roots going back about 90 years. As I mentioned in the other threads about these pitch-and-bat games, Valley-Dynamo is living up to expectations in promoting these games into the operator market. The games are getting visibility in trade magazine ads and at trade shows in a way that suggests that Valley really is excited to offer this product.
