    Quoted from PismoArcade:

    In light of the Alien fiasco (among others), I thought I'd remind those of this blast from the past.
    (Wow...I forgot that Barry Oursler was hired for this dumpster fire, too.)

    barry was never even contacted, i asked him in an interview on the pinball podcast. they lied to make themselves look legitimate.

    Sounds about right.

    I still have my Vonnie D T-shirt.

    Barry must have been mistaken. They were pretty clear in their first post. This is all on Barry! lol

    Quoted from VonnieD:

    First just so it is clear we do have Barry Oursler already on board helping with his knowledge of pinball and designing game modes.

    75 backers pledged $104,050 to help bring this project to life.

    lol

    Quoted from RyThom:

    WTB Vonnie D t-shirt.

    I think someone could make a few bucks running a batch of these. I'd buy one.

    Start a Kickstarter (what, too soon?)

    how bout one that reads ...

    Vonnie D got sent to prison, and all I got was his lousy t-shirt.

    #808 6 years ago

    Let's dust off off this old chestnut:

    Wtf...

    #810 6 years ago

    Haha. Ah.....memories.

    #811 6 years ago

    Has anyone else heard about a Skitty B pinball company? I heard they might be a direct rival of Vonnie D.

    » YouTube video

    Favorite quote was when he says," from what I've seen so far, the game is incredible". Haha what does a lying puppet know?

    Crazy story, just read thru it after a nod from the DR thread. Did Wes end up in prison then? Anyone know?

    Yes, 5 years in federal prison without parole for his "incense" side business. He's not due for a parole hearing until late 2022

    That’s not far off, maybe we’ll hear an update on gremlins soon? Lol

    The whitewood should be incredible by the time he's released.

    Isn't federal prison pretty cushy? He might have access to a nice woodworking shop and could be quietly building gremlin machines

    #819 3 years ago

    I have always wondered what happened to this game and never in my wildest dreams did I think this would happen. I got into pinball really in 2012 and it was a weird time with Metallica coming out and JJP starting to get off the ground. Everybody complains about Heighway or JPOP but this company is never talked about. Now I know what happened...wow.

    No, it is not pretty cushy.

    Like the line from the movie Office Space; "We're not going to white collar resort prison, no no no, we're going to Federal pound me in the ass prison".
