• FarSight Looking To Bring A Creepy, Kooky, Mysterious And Spooky...And Altogether Ooky Table To The Pinball Arcade!!!


    The long awaited table that Pinball Arcade fans have been clamoring for since the announcement of The Pinball Arcade is just a Kickstarter away from joining FarSight Studio's ever expanding library of classic pinball tables...and it's just around the corner!

    That's right...Bally's 1992 The Addams Family is within arm's reach and FarSight will need the help of the pinball community more than ever to make this once pipe dream become a reality.


    FarSight officially announced the following on Friday, July 11th :

    "If you are thinking... "Don't tease us any more with the Addams Family™ back glass!" Guess what? We aren't. We've agreed upon terms with all of the major licenses and clearances we need to FINALLY do a Kickstarter to recreate the highly anticipated ADDAMS FAMILY™ pinball table!!! We have been working on this for a long time, and it's finally becoming a reality! We expect to launch the Kickstarter this summer, so get ready fans! We will need your help!"

    With that said, the time has come once again for the pinball community to pull together to help bring the #1 rated and best-selling pinball table of all time to The Pinball Arcade for all generations to enjoy. Get ready...the time is near!

      I'll be a backer! Look forward! I find we will have plenty of "Halloween/spooky" type of pinball tables now... I hope for something fresh "Tron Legacy" unique theme on the next KickStarter.

      If you look at Farsight's other Kickstarter projects, Twilight Zone did very well, Star Trek: The Next Generation did well enough as it had a head start from Twilight Zone, and Terminator 2 barely made it. There were a lot of complaints in the comments for Terminator 2 that Farsight didn't release the Xbox 360 versions for their games. I don't want to revisit that, but it might be better to wait until the Xbox 360 version of Pinball Arcade is released if Adams Family is more than $55k.

      The Pinball Arcade Newsletter #29 says that

      Hey, Xbox fans! Wanted to give you a bit of an update on Xbox 360 and Xbox One, we're still in pre-certification but working hard on moving forward! Microsoft is currently in the process of altering the way they handle metadata, so it's been a learning curve understanding how the system works as we move forward with the content. Rest assured, we're working as hard as possible to get Pinball Arcade into Xbox fans' hands!

      Is it due to getting close to the 4th season?

      They have only said very soon and this summer. So it shouldn't be too long a wait.
      Diner and one more unannounced pin left for season 3. Then we are on to season 4. FS never said Addams would be part of season 3 or 4, or a stand alone table. So we will just have to wait to see where it fits in the release schedule (assuming the kickstarter is successful).

      My guess is that they're waiting on the Xbox One version to be released so they have more people to help fund the Kickstarter campaign. Farsight did say the Xbox One version was going into pre-certification next week.

      The real question is how much the Kickstarter campaign is going to be.

      Guessing $80k-$125k

      Thought I'd swing thru to check on the status. And I see nothing has changed yet...but it's OK, I have time.
