So - they will have no final art, design or code.... If they want real world data then put the machines on location like other companies used to do with protos. Plus by the sound of it - they are saying 'we are only sending tech staff so dont bother talking to them'.
Throw a machine together that flips a pinball round a few shots.... then wait for the cash to fly in..... Sounds like another company I know.
I wouldnt want to buy a game off them, they may make one or two and go under, like Heighway (that had some investors that put serious money into it).
They talk a good talk.
Heard it all before.
Can not see Mr Palmer emailing them to ask for consideration to be UK distributors.
I've emailed them.... worth a chat and the control freak in me wont let anyone else be distributor!!!
deeproot Launch Information
Like so many others, the pandemic has challenged nearly every part of our business and the lives of our employees. We were permitted to return to the office in late May, and we have been working diligently towards repairing our supply chain, adding back in some more innovations (scrapped for March), and the impending release of Retro Atomic Zombie Adventureland.
Much has changed in the last few months for pinball. Marketing, launching, and getting a pinball machine in front of pinheads has required new levels of brainstorming. In 2019, we wanted to show off the '5 days of deeproot', and back in March we want to show off live in front of guests with a grand launch. Neither of those launch concepts make sense any more. Therefore soon we will take a low-key approach. We will welcome a few pinball VIPs for a special recorded tour through our R&D history, innovations, and facilities. More to come...
