Isn't that the company that had much issues from the very beginning, as documented on Pinside? Including the fact they seem to still owe deposit money for people with locked-in orders at the time..

I think there are way more people interested in pinballs than 2-3 persons! Questioning if Pinball Brothers' latest push to startup a company and manufacture new games is also legit. The previous company burned quite a few people. This time around thou, seems at least one game has shipped (according to numerous posts on Pinside). Another manufacturer can only be a good thing for the hobby, IMO!!

Just kidding, i'm always very excited about new pins release but always feel people very silent here on maaca.

And for Alien i'm super excited, would love to try one, and buy one also!! It's number 1 best movie theme.

Alien is also a theme with a lot of pull for me.
The screen on the playfield is gone, but they say the footage is reflected on the overhead screen.
It did appear like the screen was flipping back and forth between showing the status and displaying a video. That should be better integrated in my opinion.
Road Show, Last Action Hero, Rocky & Bullwinkle, Stargate, F14 Tomcat

I really would love that Alien theme, really would! But the game itself seems kind of a let down compared with what Heighway had first envisioned. I like what I'm seeing, but will definitely wait until Pinball Brothers have had a successful launch (and worked out expected issues) before being overly enthusiastic about it. Now, if it was Godzilla, that would be another matter alltogether..!

Nothing about the Alien pinball machine feels like a let-down to me, except for the shaky development history.
Redesigned machine ditches the playfield screen (which I wasn't a fan of,) and adds a physical lock. It includes a few tweaks and re-engineered bits. (like a difference between the first WOZ and the later edition WOZ machines)
Layout and art looks incredible.
Modes and video content looks great.

Even though I'm not a market for these, I love to think that we'll be at the point where Alien and Big Lebowski will be readily available, quality-built, polished, and have moved past their disastrous beginnings.
There is someone on Pinside that was showing off their scratch-built Mad Max game and omg could you imagine that Mad Max machine with Alien and Big Lebowski in a lineup?

Any fresh news on this, e.g. are games shipping? If Pinball Brothers will have a LE, what will be the differences?

Bon, Pinball Brothers directement c'est non! Mais au moins, ils ont répondu assez rapidement. Là, j'attends une réponse de Nitro..

Alors, j'ai tenté le coup, quelques couriels ça ne coûte pas cher! Ils sont tous bien corrects d'avoir répondu, c'est apprécié.

Par contre, il faut faire un dépôt de $1000 USD (comme tous le monde), pour éventuellement (personne ne sait quand) se faire livrer une Alien version standard.. puis espérer et payer la balance lors de la livraison,

Hello,
Our priority is to ship Alien to customers first.
If you’d like to order one let me know.

Unfortunately we don’t send games to customers. You would need to talk with Nitro Pinball for a test machine.
All games in the US are going through Coin Taker.
We don’t know what you think Pinside would have to do with us?

Best regards,

J'aurais vraiment été surpris du résultat contraire.

Bien hâte d'essayer cette machine de toutes façons, je n'avais pas trippé sur la première version quand je l'ai essayée à Allentown, je trouvais que le coin du lockdown bar n'était pas confortable pour les poignets :oops:

Moi aussi, j'aurais bien été surpris. Mais sous le prétexte que Pinball Brothers est dans le fonds un 'reboot' de Heighway Pinball, et que leur histoire ancienne est une faillite par pas mal les mêmes personnes, j'aurais pensé qu'ils en feraient un peu plus pour se donner une chance - ça inclus les distributeurs!

Puis, même un nouveau char, on peut l'essayer!
