There was some confusion regarding the prototype machines at Houston – here are a few comments deeproot had made some previously regarding the machines:
- “These prototypes will not have final art, design, or code.”
- “…what those games will not have, is/are most of the innovations that we will not show yet…I hope the hobby keeps in mind that the best is yet to come.”
- “we…contracted with Mirco to supply the playfields for the Houston Expo”
- “…the production cabinets will be more aesthetically pleasing”
Dead Flip Machine Coming Soon
On a Dead Flip Twitch Stream last week, Jack Danger of Dead Flip was asked the following question in the chat:
“When will we see the first official jack danger designed pin for sale to the general public? greater than or less than 2 years?“
“I’d say give it a year. For the completed finished product…give me a year internet, you’ll have something you can buy.“
So Jack has confirmed publicly that he is designing a pinball machine to sell to the public – we’ll keep you posted as we learn more!
