Barnstorm Games today announced that its Pro Pinball Kickstarter campaign, launched on 31st July 2013 has already reached 57% of its £40,000 goal less than a week after launch. http://kck.st/140bF4v
The aim of the Kickstarter campaign is to create an ULTRA Edition of the 1997 classic, Pro Pinball: Timeshock!, which is still regarded by many as the best pinball simulation ever made. The ULTRA Edition will feature graphics and gameplay with a level of realism never before seen, taking full advantage of today’s desktops, tablets and phones.
"We are so pleased to get off to such a great start with this Kickstarter campaign. The support we’ve had from pinball fans worldwide has been superb. The opportunity for my team to take pinball simulation to a whole new level is fantastic." said Adrian Barritt, creator of the original games.
Pledges of just £1 will receive the original 1997 PC version of Timeshock! when the campaign ends, £5 pledges will receive the ULTRA Edition for iOS or Android upon its December release, while those who pledge £10 will receive it on a platform of their choice.
So far Timeshock! is in development for PC, Mac, iOS and Android, but if there’s time remaining, stretch goals for OUYA, Linux, XBLA, PS3, Vita, 3DS and Wii U releases will be added. With the ultimate aim to create ULTRA Editions of the other classic Pro Pinball tables The Web, Big Race USA and Fantastic Journey before creating some brand new tables from scratch.
This project is set to be a major milestone in the world of pinball and in light of the team’s passion for pinball games and the dedication of the fans of the original series, Barnstorm are confident that with the backing required, fans will not be disappointed. But with Kickstarter it’s all or nothing, so the full £40,000 must be raised by Saturday September 14th 2013.
The team behind the development of the project are the very same that created new pinball games; Mario Pinball Land, Metroid Prime Pinball, Pinball Pulse: The Ancients Beckon and Frogger Pinball.
