Thanks to everyone who has been emailing me with their interest in this pin! Now that more of the Expo dust has settled, I thought I'd answer some quick questions and give some more background and info on next steps.
Last December when I decided to start this project I put together a schedule and wanted to have a machine ready for the Chicago Expo with a complete art package and working flippers and kickers so that people could get a feel for the shots and flow. A couple of rock star programmers came on board in the summer and not only were we able to get a machine flipping, but we got one with a ton of content with all the monster and god modes programmed, hurry ups, kickback, pandora's box targets and reward, ball saves, ZEUS targets and more - I was blown away with how much we were able to accomplish and show off.
Now that I know I have a working pin with a great layout and flow it's time for me to move forward with my next BIG plans. These steps involve adding the different multi-ball modes (ZEUS, Pandora, etc.), flashers, more GI, additional stand-up targets for the upper right flipper to shoot at, more audio clips, animations, interactive toys, etc.
With Expo, I wanted to have a pin that knocked the socks of people when they stepped up to it and realized it was built by a guy in his garage - I want to see that same reaction from people the next time I publicly show it off. Depending on how everything comes together will dictate when and where I will be able to show the pin off again. Being from Minnesota and using my own personal finances to fund this build, I mainly see shows in the general region in the near future; but depending on how development of this pin goes and funding, anything is possible.
Please feel free to email me or PM me with any questions you may have, and spread the word on WOOLY! The potential in this machine is amazing and I plan on doing everything in my power to make something that's nothing but spectacular.
