There's a fairly positive post about the whole thing on Cary Hardy's YouTube channel.
Well, I'm sure the other companies are run by level headed business men who don't have delusions of grandeur. Who in the right mind would put their team under such enormous pressure? What was Robert Mueller thinking when he dropped those lines at the Expo about being bigger and better than Stern etc...... that showed a real lack of foresight and experience.what is the secret sauce that other manufacturers have?
You've just described JPop.Yeah the problem is that you have to reign creatives in if you ever want to ship an end product. Left to their own devices they'll just keep thinking up new ideas and prototyping until the money runs out. Each new feature moving away from the original vision and remaining in prototype stage while the next idea pops up and takes shape, completely independent and at odds with all the other random ideas that went in and stayed in without review. You can have the best creative minds in the industry but someone has to keep them on track and in check.
I just described almost every project I've been part of for the last 25yrs. It's just the way it goes. The less accountability the worse it gets.
'Fire & Brimstone - The first multi-denominational religious pinball game'. Well they've cornered the market with this one! Sounds like hell to me.Well, the TWIP article makes it all sound very exciting, but 15 new titles already planned? Including a religious one???????? Are they going to be selling to Churches?
That's the way I understood it, rather than you buying upgrades to a game, you earn 'tickets' through your gameplay and decide how to spend them - similar to in RS buying souvenirs and deciding if you want to spend points on buying them, or using your gold in GoT.That could make for useful strategy decisions s if the tickets have to be earned in game rather than bought as DLC. Choose where to spend them them during the ball, or before the next ball.
