FarSight Studios has a Kickstarter to bring the Twilight Zone to Pinball Arcade
Pinball Arcade was recently released for PS3 and Vita, and you may have heard that its tough to put down. With the help of Kickstarter, FarSight Studios is attempting to raise $55,000 to fund a pinball table know as… The Twilight Zone.
The Kickstarter will help them purchase the many licenses needed to get the real pinball machine fully immortalized in the digital download space. They are getting very close to their goal of $55,000 by 16 June and say the project will only be funded if they meet the money goal by that fateful Sunday.
If you’re curious about Kickstarter, you can easily contribute by providing a generous donation to the FarSight project. First, visit their Kickstarter page and decide how much you’d like to pledge. Jay Obernolte, president and founder of FarSight Studios, has put together this very informative video presentation.
Although pledges may start at $1, you actually get something in return starting at the $10 pledge. Take a look at the pledge packages below.
- Pledge $10 or more – Get the Twilight Zone pinball table on a single platform of your choice plus the satisfaction of knowing you helped make the preservation of this table possible.
- Pledge $25 or more – Everything above PLUS an exclusive Twilight Zone edition virtual pinball (which can be used on any of the tables in the Pinball Arcade!)
- Pledge $50 or more – Everything above PLUS an exclusive Twilight Zone Pinball wallpaper for the device of you choice AND an entry into the Pinball Arcade Supporters Tournament!
- Pledge $100 or more - You’ll get a special version of the Twilight Zone pinball table with access to the table operator’s menu on every platform. You’ll also get an entry into the Pinball Arcade Supporters Tournament!
- Pledge $500 or more - Everything above PLUS be a Beta-tester with early access to the table, see you name listed as a supporter in the credits, and get a cool Development Team T-shirt!
- Pledge $1,000 or more - Everything above PLUS a copy of Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection signed by the FarSight development team.
- Pledge $5,000 or more – Everything above PLUS lunch and one-on-one with the FarSight design team! They’ll give you a tour of their studio in Big Bear Lake, California and you’ll get an inside look at how we digitize pinball tables. They’ll show you what they’re currently working on (and you’ll be among the first outside the studio to play it!). You can also share your thoughts on what they should improve and which tables they should do next. You are responsible for your travel but lunch is on them!
- Pledge $10,000 or more – The FarSight team will throw a live virtual pinball tournament for you and your friends anywhere in the continental US, complete with goodies and prizes. You’ll get exclusive early access to the latest new tables and be among the first to play them outside the studio. Your name will also be highlighted in the credits as someone who really made a difference.
Those last two currently have zero backers, so get to it. Who needs a fat downpayment on a new car when you can buy a pinball tournament, your name in the credits, an autographed copy of the old pinball game they released, the chance to work for them as a beta-tester, a t-shirt, and the virtual Twilight Zone table playable in all your home systems?
