Help fight the cause for the revival of Pro Pinball to go ahead! At the time of writing there is 35 hours left on Silverball Studio's Kickstarter campaign for Pro Pinball: Revived & Remastered, a game that Adrian Barritt exclusively told Cubed3 would eventually be heading to Nintendo 3DS and Wii U if enough funding support is built up. The target? US$400,000. At present the running total is just over the $150,000 mark. A long way to go in a short time.
However, there is no massive risk to those backing the project. Silverball Studios has announced that it is going to make sure the loyal fans and backers of the project so far still get a reward for getting behind the project, even if the Kickstarter is not a success. The studio will still look to produce the series even if the Kickstarter fails to reach a positive conclusion; as the fans have convinced them that the games are wanted. The project to revive and remaster the hugely popular games will still go ahead with a revised time frame, although the studio are still hopeful the money can be raised.
When we launched this campaign about a month ago we had 0 backers. We now have over 1000 backers whom on average have pledged a category beating $113 each! Thank you, each and every one of you! Regardless of the outcome of this Kickstarter we are determined to bring Pro Pinball back. If we don´t hit the target it will take us longer to do than we would´ve liked and have a few less bells and whistles. But the bottom line is over 1000 of you want more Pro Pinball and so do we!
As a thank you to those who have pledged and supported us, and in the event Pro Pinball does go ahead without Kickstarter, we pledge, to all of our backers, that many of the fantastic rewards on offer will still come your way!
- Adrian Barritt, CEO of Silverball Studios.
This unparalleled move by the studio will be the first time a Kickstarter project has offered so many of the rewards to backers, regardless of success. The studio hope that move will demonstrate the gratitude it has for the current backers and also to boost pledges as people really do have everything to gain; if the project is successful backers will get all the rewards in their chosen tier and the project will come to life - making 5 new games, if it is not then they still get many of the rewards for FREE.The campaign, if fully funded, will see the development team create a brand new ultimate Pro Pinball table, designed by the legendary Pat Lawlor as well as fully re-creating from scratch the four original Pro Pinball tables for various platforms.
Will you be contributing to the cause in these remaining hours?
