Quoted from Rarehero:
Two years for WOZ and that's with a factory, a team of animators, one of the best programmers in pinball, a business plan for a viable company, etc....with such lofty ambitions but a smaller production crew (seemingly) ...I'm gonna call 5 years minimum on these projects.
I don't know about 5 years, but the things that you mention above played a very large role in my decision to get out.
Plus the fact that we BHZA buyers haven't heard anything in terms of what is going on with the project, no group/discussion forum for owners......nothing....didn't help either.
Just too many unknowns for me at this point in time, with nothing to give me reason/confidence to stay in and risk more money since I believe that payments from this point forward (November) are now non-refundable.
Finally, as Pinlawyer said, I do worry about what the code will be like. They don't have a Keefer or Lyman working for them.
I'm taking my refund and will apply it towards a high end restoration of an AFM. It will actually cost more than BHZA, but at least I know exactly what I'm getting.
I think the theme and artwork on BHZA is going to be phenomenal when it is released, but virtually everything else about it is up in the air..
