Ranger In The Ruins has been released!

My first commercial pinball game is $150, and available through the Multimorphic online store: https://www.multimorphic.com/store/p3-game-kits/3rd-party-game-kits/ranger-in-the-ruins/

Ava and I discuss a bit about the game, and some streams available (warning: spoilers!)

I also note that the game is part of the Pinside database - if you would be so kind, please rate/review the game, which will help with visibility for other P3 owners.

Ava joins me to talk about the newest P3 game, Heist!

This Week In Pinball had a writeup on the release day here:

https://www.thisweekinpinball.com/heist-revealed-deep-dive-in-depth-overview-of-the-machine-features-rules-and-more/

We are having a blast with the game, and we talk about the artwork, design, software, audio and how I can't get more than 5,000 points. ;-) 

For those interested, you can order from Multimorphic at https://www.multimorphic.com/store/p3-game-kits/heist/

Thanks to Ava for joining me and talking about her new favorite game!

Welcome back!  I have decided to slightly retool the show as most of my free time is being spent on developing a modern game for the P3 platform.

Had a follow-up call for the Williams Deluxe Official Baseball regarding the pitching motor.  I discuss some of the unique properties of that unit along with the repair for a sticking pitching unit and the gameplay for the game itself.

Listener (and good friend) Ryan Claytor wrote in with a correction to episode 462.

Next, there is a NIB Bally Tahiti on eBay... sort of: https://www.ebay.com/itm/BALLY-BINGO-PINBALL-MACHINE-TAHITI-1979-NEW-IN-BOX/274192522557?hash=item3fd725dd3d:g:E9AAAOSwfideFoIp

Dan Ferguson, proprietor of the Lone Star Pinball Museum, passed away on December 14th, 2019.  I was privileged to meet Dan and spend a few hours speaking with him and playing games in August.  Rest in peace, Dan.

The new game I discuss has had some new developments, including art, music, and voice acting: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/p3-game-so-you-want-to-be-a-hero-quest-for-glory-pinball

Today's featured game is 1967's Chicago Coin Festival: https://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=833

Another episode, another new game announcement - this one decidedly not EM, but interesting all the same.

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/p3-game-so-you-want-to-be-a-hero-quest-for-glory-pinball

There is a potential new EM podcast coming - looking forward to it!  The more EM content, the better!

In other news, a Pinside user had an unobtainable part of the reset bank for Bally games 3D printed.  I hope we see much more of this in the future, and prevent more games from being scrapped. 

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/bally-reset-bank-clutch-fix

Today's featured game is 1969's Seven Up by Williams.  A very interesting layout with two sequences, multiple ball saving posts, and specials galore.
